REPORTER: AMERICAN MAJORITY

RACING CAR SPEEDS BY IN A

QUALIFYING CAR IN THE NASCAR

NATIONWIDE SERIES, CAR NO 81'S

SPONSOR MISSION IS ON THE SIDE

OF THE CAR.

THEY WANT AMERICANS TO PLEDGE TO

VOTE TO KEEP AMERICA FREE.

IF YOU DON'T LIKE WHERE WE ARE

ECONOMICALLY, IF GAS IS TOO

HIGH, YOU DON'T LIKE THE FACT

THAT YOU ARE $130,000 IN DEBT

PER PERSON.

FOR FOUNDER NED RYAN, DOING

SOMETHING IS GETTING INVOLVED IN

THE ELECTION PROCESS AND VOTING.

AROUND ONE IN FIVE NASCAR FANS

IS NOT REGISTERED TO VOTE.

RYAN SAYS IT IS TIME TO PUT

AMERICANS IN THE DRIVER'S SEAT

AND FIGHT AGAINST WHAT HE CALL

IT IS TRIPLE THREAT OF BIG

GOVERNMENT.

OUT OF CONTROL SPENDING,

MASSIVE DEBT AND OVERTAXATION.

THE RACING TEAM BELIEVES

EDUCATION WILL MAKE A

DIFFERENCE, THEY ARE NOT HOLDING

BACK ON AND OFF THE TRACK.

LARGE VENDERS DRAPE THIS ROW

WHICH READS 62 PERCENT OF

AMERICANS BELIEVES CUTTING

TAXES, NOT INCREASED GOVERNMENT

SPENDING IS THE BEST WAY TO

INCREASE JOBS.

WE BELIEVE THE ISSUES ARE THE

REASON WHY JOBS.

EVERYBODY KNOWS THIS COUNTRY

STRUGGLED FINANCIALLY THE LAST

THREE OR FOUR YEARS, EVEN THE

DRIVERS IN NASCAR AND THE FANS

SEE IT.

LESS RACES,LESS VACATIONS.

BASIC FREEDOMS ARE IN

JEOPARDY.

THERE ARE THINGS THAT SHOULD

MAKE PEOPLE VERY, VERY NERVOUS.

THE DIRECTION AND SPEED WE HAVE

GOTTEN THERE IS NOT A GOOD SIGN.

AMERICAN MAJORITY HOPES THEIR

PLEDGE TO VOTE DRIVE WILL LEAD

TO LIMITED GOVERNMENT.

RANDY MCDONALD WHICH OWNED CAR

NO. 81 AGREES.

AS GOVERNMENT GETS BIGGER,

THEY MAKE ME AS A SMALL

BUSINESSER OWNER DO MORE STUFF

AND I AM SPENDING TIME ON THAT

THAN MAKING MY KHAIRI ABAZAS

CARS FASTER.

THE AMERICAN MAJORITY PLEDGE

TO VOTE DRIVE IS NOT THE FIRST

TIME NASCAR HAS NAVIGATED THE

YEAR OF POLITICS.

LAST YEAR THEY SPOKE OUT AGAINST

THE U.S. MILITARY SPONSORSHIP.

THE UNITED STATES, MICHELE

OBAMA AND DR. JILL BIDEN.

ALTHOUGH SOME BOOING, THOSE

ON THE LEFT HAVE NOT SHIED AWAY

TO POTENTIAL VOTERS.

IN 2008, THEN SENATOR BARACK

OBAMA CONSIDERED SPONSORING A

SPRINT RACE CAR.

FAST FORWARD, HOW EFFECTIVE IS

THE DRIVE?

POLITICO.COM SAYS THEY ARE

AVERAGING AROUND 4,000 SIGN UPS

FOR AMERICAN MAJORITY.

OTHER PEOPLE ARE DOING THIS

ON THE LEFT, WHY CAN'T WE ON THE

RIGHT.

IT BENEFITS DEMOCRACY, EASY

SPECIALLY IF YOUNG PEOPLE ARE

ENCOURAGED.

19-YEAR-OLD TAYLOR DOGET GETS

THE MESSAGE.

IF IT TAKES ONE PERSON, EVERY

VOTE COUNTS.

A STATEMENT BOTH AISLES

BELIEVE AS THEY RACE TO ELECTION

DAY.
