(Lori Piotrowski) – As people entered the World Market Center plaza, they noticed a brightly painted race car parked in front of Mundo’s. This wasn’t a misplaced valeted vehicle, rather the car that Dylan Kwasniewski, a 16-year-old phenom, races in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series. Dylan was on hand with his sponsor, Rock Star Energy Drink, to talk racing and sign photographs.
He wasn’t the only guest, however, to meet and greet attendees. Rich Galen, former press secretary for Dan Quayle and Newt Gingrich flew into town to encourage attendees in their political activism. Although he currently is a senior advisor to Manning, selvage & Lee, a public relations firm in Washington, DC, Galen remains engaged in the political process.
“It’s good to be involved,” he said of individuals sporting stickers and buttons of their favored candidate. “This is what politics is about.”
He recognized the importance of Nevada’s caucus, now scheduled for January 14, and congratulated attendees for their level of commitment.
