NASCAR Subway Fresh Fit 500 Picks Terry Goddard, State AG, as Honorary Race Official


Okay, we admit it: When we think of the roaring, pedal-to-the-metal high performance of race cars, a picture of Terry Goddard is about the furthest thing from our mind.

Now the Phoenix International Raceway have put the two together by making the state Attorney General an honorary race official for the kickoff event of NASCAR's 2009 Sprint Cup Series, the Subway Fresh Fit 500.

According to a news release from PIR, Goddard will welcome the series' drivers at the start/finish line just before the April 18 race, plus participate in other pre-race activities.

This seems like just the thing to bolster the image of politician who gets treated like asphalt by local officials.
