DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Two days away from a critical primary in Michigan, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney detoured to Daytona International Speedway on Sunday.
Romney visited the track for a few hours before the scheduled start of the Daytona 500. He spoke briefly at the pre-race drivers' meeting and shook hands and took photographs with fans. He met several drivers and team owners.
Asked if he would be rooting for something bad to happen to the No. 26 car being sponsored by Republican rival Rick Santorum's campaign, Romney laughed, saying, ``I hope all the cars have a good race.''
With a campaign event scheduled in Michigan later Sunday, Romney wasn't scheduled to stay for the race - just as well, because the start is being delayed by rain.
