Paul Evans gets visible at local stock car race

Hey..this is cool:

After Paul Evans works Saturday on his political race, he will see his campaign logo appear on vehicles entered in a stock-car race.

Evans, the former mayor of Monmouth and the Democratic nominee in Senate District 10, and his supporters will meet at 10:30 a.m. on the front steps of the state Capitol. They will conduct a door-to-door canvass in part of the district, which covers South and West Salem, Aumsville, Turner, Monmouth and Independence.

At 3:30 p.m., they will be at the Budweiser I-5 Challenge Series at Willamette Speedway in Lebanon, where they will cheer for Ron Shinkle of Monmouth, who is defending his title as 2005 Classic Sportsman Division champion. Shinkle's cars will sport the dog-tag "Leadership for a Change"logo of Evans' campaign.

I'm wondering how bent out of shape his competition will be that Evans is going to be at the Budweiser I-5 Challenge. If Winters is using Chuck Adams (a la Minnis) as a consultant, will likely be hearing how Evans is pushing beer on little kids and sweet old ladies.

Nevertheless, this is very creative thinking on the part of the Evans Campaign. Its all about name recognition.

Well done, Paul!
