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

With 53 laps to go in Saturday’s Nationwide race at Bristol Motor Speedway, Patrick made contact with Ryan Truex. Patrick’s car spun hard into the wall – first the nose, then the rear, leaving her with a destroyed race car.
After getting out of her car, Patrick waited for the cars to come back around. When they did, Patrick walked onto the track, located Truex and spread her arms apart as if to say, “What gives?”
“It felt like to me – I came out of the corner I was just running down the straight and it felt like he came off the wall,” said Patrick, who was running 17th at the time, two laps down. “I don’t I know if he had a tag-slap off the wall, like he was pushing up and then it snapped on him and he came off. I don’t know. I don’t know if I may be giving him the benefit of the doubt right there.”
Upon first look it didn’t appear as though Truex did anything wrong. It looked liked Patrick got loose, slipped up the track and into Truex’s rear bumper. But the head-on replay does show Truex turning slightly into Patrick’s lane.
“It was my fault. I guess that’s just racing at Bristol,” Truex said. “We were racing there and I just came off the corner, got loose, and as I was saving it just came down the hill and got into her. My fault. I mean, I’m sorry. I didn’t want for that to happen. I don’t know if she thinks I did it on purpose. I guess she’s just mad because she was running good. It was an accident. I apologize.”
Regardless of fault, it was a tough way for Patrick to end this portion of her Nationwide schedule. She’d finished in the top 20 in her first three races, including a career-best fourth-place run two weeks ago at Las Vegas.
She ended up 33rd at Bristol.
