50 Cent at Daytona 500: ‘Outside of going to church, you can find good women in NASCAR’

With no plans to kiss Erin Andrews, 50 Cent has returned to the Daytona 500 and is enjoying the NASCAR experience.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- A year after an uncomfortable attempt to kiss Fox reporter Erin Andrews, 50 Cent was back at Daytona International Speedway Saturday.

Born Curtis Jackson, the rapper has signed a two-year contact to sponsor Swan Racing through SMS Audio, a consumer electronics and headphones manufacturer company he founded. Appearing with Swan Racing drivers Cole Whitt and Parker Kligerman, Jackson was wildly entertaining during a question-and-answer session with assembled media.

Among the highlights:

His effort to lock lips with Andrews on national television prior to the Daytona 500 (Andrews soundly rebuffed Jackson):

"I wanted to kiss her, man. She handled it amazingly. ... It was an awkward moment."

What about attending NASCAR races most stands out to Jackson?

"The women here are extremely hot. Outside of going to church, you can find good women in NASCAR."

What was it like taking laps around Daytona in a street-legal Toyota Camry?

"We were going around there 135 mph. I didn't even know a Camry could do that!" Jackson later said the experience shook him a little.

On how Eminem revolutionized rap music:

"He took color out of the hip hop culture. It's about the music. Passion is what separates us. It is black music but he does it better than black artists."
