Palin Wins Over Racing Fans at Indy 500

Former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin won over racing fans this weekend at the Indianapolis 500, again showing how well she resonates with people because she genuinely loves retail politics and meeting them.

As was observed, that genuineness–and patience–cannot be faked. Palin met with people in the lobby of the hotel she was staying at on Saturday night, and those who observed her noticed how patient she was with everyone as they asked for her time. It is worth noting that those who do not even have as many speaking engagements and television appearances as requests Palin has had to deny often find interacting with supporters to be a burden. Not Palin. 

Palin also encountered Breitbart News and Breitbart Sports writer extraordinaire Mary Chastain, an avid racing fan who was at the Indy 500 this weekend, as can be seen in photo below. 

Parnelli Jones, the 1963 Indy 500 champ, invited the Palins this weekend. Jones and the Palins will reportedly go caribou hunting sometime in Alaska. Palin said riding around the famous 2.5-mile oval was “bucket list stuff.” She reportedly saw the first part of the race in the pit of team owner Sarah Fisher (pictured above), one of the most successful businesswomen in racing, before watching the rest of the race outside of the pits. Tony Kanaan, after a decade of heartache at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, finally won Sunday at the Brickyard.
