On Wednesday’s edition of NASCAR America, Bill Lester and Kyle Petty got downright presidential in their comments.

After all, there have only been so many presidents who have made appearances at NASCAR races (probably the most notable was Ronald Reagan being on hand when Richard Petty won the final Cup race of his career in the 1984 Firecracker 400 at Daytona International Speedway).

Bill and Kyle talk about just how important it is for a sitting or even former president to come to an event.

    It’s unfortunate when disingenuous politicians use athletes to gain support from voters.
