Rick Hendrick promises to provide a hilarious bearded clown for the evening’s entertainment.

10. Rick Hendrick will donate a small percentage of Dale, Jr’s winnings…in exchange for possible future Presidential Pardons

9. Jamie McMurray will appear on stage and pull a rabbit out of Mitt Romney’s as….er, hat.

8. Felix Sabates will allow all future campaign slogans to use his name, i.e. ‘Romney and Ryan (with Felix Sabates)

7. Richard Childress will let all presidential limos bear the infamous ‘3’ on their doors.

6. Brian France initiates an investigation funded by NASCAR to figure out just who this Paul Ryan guy is.

5. France has agreed to perform one of his eloquent orations for which he is so well known.

4. France’s wife, Amy, will sit there and look pretty as she calculates how much she’ll get when she divorces him.

3. In an effort to fill seats, Mike Helton offers free tickets to an event of their choice in 2013 to anyone who can prove they voted for Romney come November.

2. Helton vows to shave off his cheesy mustache with a Romney / Ryan win in November.

1. Brian France admits that, if there is one thing to be learned from NASCAR’s failed ‘Diversity Program’, it’s to just go ahead and support the whi….other guy!

“5. France has agreed to perform one of his eloquent orations for which he is so well known.”

Unfortunately that will probably happen, providing John Stewart plenty of good material for the Daily Show.
