Giuliani was to attend a NASCAR race Saturday
(CNN)-On the spot from local media, Rudy Giuliani revealed what he has been reading to prepare for a NASCAR race Saturday night. "Its a female guide to NASCAR. It was given to me by the person who wrote it," the former New York mayor told reporters in Jacksonville, Florida. "She participated in a fund raiser for me, she's an expert on NASCAR." Giuliani said his advisors had also suggested "NASCAR for Dummies" but he had not read that yet.
"I've watched NASCAR on television before, I haven't gone to one. I'm real excited about it," he said when conceding he was a relative newcomer to the sport. "I did go to a track once in Kentucky and drive around," during a fund raiser for Senator Jim Bunning of Kentucky.
Giuliani was campaigning in Jacksonville and Orlando on Saturday. He was to attend the 49th annual Pepsi 400 NASCAR Nextel Cup Series at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona, Florida Saturday night.
