NASCAR Event The Latest Venue For Rampant Palm Pre Rumor And Speculation

The latest Palm Pre release date rumor has come screaming out of a Sprint-sponsored NASCAR event, where the product placement was about as subtle as a 2,000-lb. stock car to the face.

That's NASCAR driver Tony Stewart celebrating his big win. Atop his car is a monstrous Palm Pre which, sadly, does not make calls or deliver confirmed release dates for the potentially Palm-saving mobile.

However, during the race an official, possibly high on fumes, let slip that a Palm Pre release date would be known to the world in "a couple of days."

Guess this means there really is a reason to watch NASCAR beyond just the crashes, no? [Pre Central Forums via Engadget]
