Front Row Motorsports landed a Daytona 500 sponsor for it's No. 26 car in the form of Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum.

The car, driven by Tony Raines, who was able to make the race based on his qualifying speed, will feature campaign messaging from Santorum on its hood and quarter panels.

"NASCAR and the Daytona 500 are about as American as you can get -- and it's great to have my campaign represented by one of these incredible machines," said Santorum.  "The race weekend is a wonderful tradition that we're excited to be a part of as we spread our message. I like how Tony Raines turned some heads last weekend with his qualifying run and we'd like to keep turning heads, too. I think we're both looking for a win in the end."

With the Santorum campaign coming aboard the No. 26 Ford, Front Row Motorsports will have three sponsored entries in Sunday's Daytona 500.
