It’s crunch time in Florida.

Time for candidates to shake as many hands and kiss as many babies and smile for as many pictures as they possibly can.

Tomorrow voters in Florida will make their choice for Republican presidential candidate.

We wanted to know what the Florida business community has to say about the economy, and the election.

One big company with a stronghold in the Sunshine state is the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing — otherwise known as NASCAR. They have a headquarters in Daytona Beach.

And to get a better picture of the situation in Florida, we reached out to the CEO,  Brian France.

He told us how his company is trying to work with residents to make ticket prices affordable, and what he would like from a Republican presidential nominee.
