ARLINGTON, Va., Oct. 19 (UPI) -- Bush-Cheney '04 Tuesday launched a two-day, four-state tour of NASCAR celebrities to help pull in the "NASCAR dad" vote in two weeks, the campaign said.

Seven NASCAR drivers and figures -- including Darrell Waltrip, Mark Martin, Bill Elliott, Jack Roush, Benny Parsons, Jeff Hammond and Eddie Wood -- will appear in the battleground states of Michigan, Ohio, West Virginia and Pennsylvania at 14 separate events, the campaign said.

"NASCAR fans present a pivotal voting block in this election, and these NASCAR celebrities' enthusiastic support for President Bush will have a real impact in driving voters to the polls," it said in a statement announcing the tour.

The campaign also announced it had received endorsements from nine of the Nextel Cup Series Top 10 drivers, as well as from NASCAR President Mike Helton and "countless NASCAR heroes."
