MARTINSVILLE, Va. - The husband of Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is known for winning the world's longest snowmobile race four times. On Sunday, he got a taste of speed on asphalt instead of ice.
Todd Palin, the "first dude" of Alaska, toured the garage area at Martinsville Speedway, met several drivers and was introduced to fans before the race.
"It's just a thrill for us to be down here and I'll leave my telephone number with any NASCAR racer if they want to come up and go run with us," Palin said during a brief session with the media.
