This is no April Fool’s prank, Chris Lafferty announced this past week that he would be driving with a new primary sponsor through 2012. TeaPartyRacing.com will be featured on Lafferty’s NASCAR Camping World Series truck.

Together, TeaPartyRacing.com and Lafferty Motorsports will become a NASCAR promotional tool for The Tea Party. The multi-season deal will begin during the 2011 July 4th celebrations. The truck, dubbed “We The People’s” truck, will see its’ first green flag at Kentucky Speedway on July 7, 2011. The truck’s manufacturer, color and design will all be decided by “the people.” A copy of the U.S. Constitution will be emblazoned on the truck’s hood.

Lafferty assures this new opportunity will bring much anticipated success both on and off the track. “Lafferty Motorsports welcomes TeaPartyRacing.com,” announced Lafferty. “We will bring ‘The People’s Truck’ to the front.” Lafferty is a perfect fit for the tea party movement due in large part to his grassroots upbringing. He will be speaking at rallies around the country with “The People’s Truck” in tow. [Catchfence.com]
