When asked over the weekend if he follows NASCAR, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney responded in a way that only Mitt Romney can: “Not as closely as some of the most ardent fans. But I have some great friends who are NASCAR team owners."

Some of these friends may have contributed to Romney’s presidential campaign this cycle, according to our analysis of data from the Center for Responsive Politics.*

*While there are three NASCAR series--The Sprint Cup, Nationwide, and Camping World Trucks--only those in the Sprint Cup, the top NASCAR series, were looked at for this analysis.
