Republican Mitt Romney’s Wednesday fundraiser in Charlotte will have a distinct NASCAR flavor.
The event at the Duke Mansion is chaired by NASCAR CEO Brian France and his wife Amy. Co-chairs include NASCAR President Mike Helton and team owners Richard Childress, Rick Hendrick and Felix Sabates as well as driver Jamie McMurray.
The fundraiser will be Romney’s second appearance of the week in North Carolina. On Sunday he takes a bus tour with stops in Mooresville, High Point and Wake County. Jim Morrill
