From a reader:
***SI.com’s Tom Bowles has learned that for the first time in history, a major presidential candidate may sponsor a race car in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. According to sources, Barack Obama’s campaign is in talks to become the primary sponsor of BAM Racing’s No. 49 car for the Pocono race on August 3.*****
Given all the silliness over “black holes” this week, NASCAR better hope they don’t have to black flag this car for driving too slow.
