This story hits home for us at Iron Mill Interactive Media, Inc.  Parent of Politisite.  One of our outlets are Nascanner.com which provides NASCAR fans with their favorite drive frequencies so they can monitor the action on their radios.

The Tea party Car driver Chris Lafferty will be driving the  “We the People” truck in the Camping world Truck Series:

TheTeaParty.net Launches Tea Party Racing.Com

Chris Lafferty will drive “We the People’s” truck #89 NCWTS

(Phoenix, AZ)TheTeaParty.net has announced it will be teaming up with Lafferty Motorsports, LLC to sponsor Chris Lafferty in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

The truck, which has already been dubbed “We The People’s” truck, will participate in races across the country during the upcoming two seasons. “The # 89 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and the Tea Party is a natural fit,” said Dustin Stockton media director for TheTeaParty.net. “We will literally drive ‘We The People’ to the front row in racing and government.”

Stockton dismissed criticism about a political organization sponsoring a NASCAR team. “We don’t see ourselves as a partisan organization. Our goal has always been to recruit and educate people to the benefits of limited government, fiscal restraint, and personal responsibility; that has nothing to do with traditional partisan politics.”

TeaPartyRacing.com is a mission-driven organization. The mission components are designed around:

 Representing the people (through sponsorship opportunities),

 Sharing in racing achievements.

 Restoring the importance of understanding the Constitution for America’s future.

The diversity of the TheTeaParty.net, Tea Partiers’ and Race Fans will enable the team to excel both on the racetrack as well as participate in a wide variety of activities and rallies that extend outside of the racetrack.

TheTeaParty.net is seeking separate contributions to help fund the team and has launched the website http://teapartyracing.com/ where supporters can offer their support in increments as small as $5.

The team will kick off the sponsorship over the 4th Of July Holiday at Kentucky Motor Speedway Race on July 7th.

About TheTeaParty.net

Founded in 2009, TheTeaParty.net is one of the largest Tea Party organizations in the country. Since its inception, TheTeaParty.net has recruited thousands of people a week to the Tea Party movement and offers free tools, a national calendar of events, and resources to help grow the movement.

So what is the media saying?

Coming soon to a racetrack near you: a NASCAR racing truck sponsored by the Tea Party.

TheTeaParty.net, which serves as a Web clearinghouse for about 200 small-government groups, is joining forces with NASCAR driver Chris Lafferty on a “We the People” truck.

Vicki Dooling, the media relations coordinator for TheTeaParty.net, said her group signed on with Lafferty’s team in NASCAR’s Camping World Truck Series as a way to reach out to a younger crowd and debunk any misperceptions about Tea Party supporters.

“We feel this is going to be a fabulous partnership,” she told USA TODAY.

The truck’s manufacturer, color and design will be decided by people who vote by text, according to Bill Wallace, coach and general manager for the Lafferty Motorsports team. A copy of the Constitution will be emblazoned on the truck’s hood and all the names of people who text in about the truck’s design will have their names on the vehicle, he said.

The truck will debut July 7 in Kentucky and then travel the circuit. Dooling said Tea Party supporters will be on hand to spread the word about upcoming rallies and events for the small-government movement.

Washington Times

Driver Chris Lafferty is teaming up with TheTeaParty.net as a sponsor of the #89 truck in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, which kicks off July 4.

His red Chevy truck will be renamed the “We the People” truck for the next two seasons, carrying the tea party message for two seasons and through the November 2012 election.

Unlike traditional sponsors, the tea party won’t be paying for the privilege. Instead, half the proceeds raised from other sponsors and donations will go to fund TheTeaParty.net, according to a statement by Todd Cefaretti, Freedom Organizer for TheTeaParty.net released to the Hill newspaper.

While the Republican Party still doesn’t have any front runners in the 2012 presidential race, the Tea Party will soon be looking to take the lead in a different type of race. Chris Lafferty, a driver in the Camping World Truck Series, will soon be taking the lanes in the official “‘We the People’s’ truck.” Just one election after the Tea Party proved they were a legitimate force in the political world, ready to take on the big boys, they have now proven to be a legitimate force in the branding world, ready to take on Monster Energy Drink, Longhorn Steakhouse, and GunBroker.com.

NASCAR Daytona Opener: Kurt Busch Wins Budweiser Shootout

13 02 2011

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Call it “Dancing with the Cars.” Saturday night’s Budweiser Shootout exhibition was a 200-mph tango of two-car drafts on the newly-paved, super-fast Daytona International Speedway.

In a photo finish, Kurt Busch won a predictably wild NASCAR opener on the new $20 million racing surface, pushed to the front by defending Daytona 500 winner Jamie McMurray a few feet before the finish line. Denny Hamlin took the checkered flag first, but was subsequently black-flagged for dropping below the yellow line on the track trying to pass Ryan Newman at the finish line.

NASCAR ruled the finish Busch, McMurray and Newman. Five-time defending Sprint Cup Series champ Jimmie Johnson and Greg Biffle rounded out the top five.

“What an unbelievable experience,” Busch said.

The race had set a record for lead changes (24) with 12 laps to go — there ended up being 28. The two-car drafts were easily reaching speeds of 206 mph — nearly 15 mph faster than last year’s pole-winning speed for the Daytona 500.

Dancia Patrick Crash on Lap 68 in Nationwide Series

14 02 2010

Danica Patrick not so smooth first time out

Danica Patrick’s first race on the Nationwide Series didn’t go quite as she had hoped. Just the same the 35th place finish as a rookie will give her a lot to walk away learning.

Patrick was taken out of the race in a lap 68 in a large pile-up, resulting in a “did not finish” final standing for her.

The first thing that Patrick learned was that she might be getting a lot of media attention but that does not stop her from being a part of a big one. The big one being the crash she was a part of in the Nationwide Series today in Daytona.

The second thing that she has to continue to work on is the difference between NASCAR and Indy-car language. Patrick repeatedly communicates using her Indy-car lingo. While her team can adapt and she can clarify as to how the car is performing. Still, anyone in NASCAR will tell you that communication is key between a driver and their pit crew, so Patrick will have to work on this some.

Danica Patrick NASCAR Debut at Daytona Speedway Saturday

9 02 2010

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — After a top-10 taste of stock car racing over the weekend, Danica Patrick has decided to accelerate her learning curve and will enter Saturday’s NASCAR Nationwide Series season-opener at Daytona International Speedway.

Danica Patrick makes the More to NASCAR

Patrick announced her decision Monday, two days after finishing sixth at Daytona in an 80-lap race in the ARCA Series, which is an entry-level, training series for many drivers. The Nationwide Series is NASCAR’s version of Triple-A baseball and a significant step up.

“Racing in the Nationwide Series race was my goal during this entire two-month preparation process,” Patrick said, “but we wanted to make sure it was the right thing to do.

“The ARCA race was a blast and I’m not ready for my first Daytona Speedweeks to end just yet. I want more racing.”

Auto Racing has become the fastest growing spectator sport in the United States.  NASCAR fans enjoy the ability to hear their favorite drivers and crew directly via hand held scanners.  The frequency range is between 450-460 Mhz. A few drivers have recently changed to 800-900mhz frequencies

Nascanner decided to provide frequency updates on NowPublic free.   Here are our first update.

NASCANNER: 2012 free Auto Racing Frequencies, Schedule, and Driver Guide

Here is a NASCAR scanner frequency Primer from two sources.

 Using a Scanner at a NASCAR Race

<!– –>

Once you’ve experienced a race with a scanner, you can’t imagine watching one without the headphones on your ears.  You are able to listen to communication among the driver, his pit crew and spotter, as well as radio broadcasts and track announcements, which are usually otherwise inaudible due to the race noise.

Using a scanner helps you discover the race behind the race, hearing differing pit strategies, learning how the cars are handling and discovering who is mad at whom.  Basically, you’ll hear what these guys really want to say, but can’t in front of a television camera.

When I started scanning races, I used a cheap 200-channel scanner with a frequency range reaching 800Mhz, and two sets of inexpensive headphones with a splitter.  I bought it on sale in 1997, and the whole set-up cost me around $200. It worked, but I have since learned that there are big differences with scanners, headsets and even antenna’s. In short, you can get by with less expensive set-ups, but spending a few extra dollars will save some frustration with bleed-over and lost reception at the track.

If you don’t want to buy a scanner, you can rent them at the track. The cost to rent one for the weekend is $55-60, so you can do the math to see how quickly you can own one at those prices. Plus, I’ve seen the track-side rental places run out of scanners, so you’re definitely not guaranteed to get one.

Using a Scanner at a NASCAR Race

NASCAR scanner frequency information from Fact Expert

<!– –>

What would it be like to be a part of the thrill and excitement that goes on among the crew of NASCAR driver during a heated race? Those that know the NASCAR frequencies that each individual driver transmits on during the race can say that they’ve experienced it all first hand. Drivers run into all kinds of problems during races and they have a lot of triumphs too. It’s all usually captured through the transmissions they send to their crew as they tear around the track and for those in the know, they can be a part of it all as well. However it should be said that the activity of scanning frequencies can be considered illegal in some cases so it’s important to know what’s going to get you in very big trouble and what areas considered ok to an extent.

First of all, not all frequencies are the same from race to race and track to track. There are groups that keep up with NASCAR frequencies and if you’re planning on making it a part of your regular trips to the races, you may want to join one. That’s not to say that there aren’t places online that you can find these out, but it’s nice to belong to a community of fellow enthusiasts that may be willing to share a lot of information and tips that you can’t always find anywhere else. If frequencies have been changed for any reason, you may find out from a friend in a group or forum before you head out to the track.

NASCAR Frequencies Can Change From Race To Race

Each of the drivers in a race has several NASCAR frequencies to broadcast on. Even the governing body of NASCAR itself can’t determine which frequencies will be usable at all times. There are usually about four available frequencies for a driver. A primary and secondary as well as two alternates. Thankfully there are some websites that list all of these for scanner enthusiasts to make use of. But it’s not just for a single area of NASCAR. In some cases, the frequencies for all of the series including the NationWide, Sprint Cup and even CART racing.
