"I'm not perfect. I just am who I am," Romney said on "Fox News Sunday," when asked about the comment, in a Rust Belt state where unemployment is high.

"We have a car that we have in California. And we got a car that we have back in Boston, where our other home is. That's just the way it is," the former private equity executive said.

"If people think there's something wrong with being successful in America, then they better vote for the other guy. Because I've been extraordinarily successful, and I want to use that success and that know-how to help the American people."

Romney tried to draw a connection with blue-collar America by showing up at the Daytona 500 car race in Florida.

"This is kind of a fun thing for me to do," Romney told Sirius XM's NASCAR radio.

Just as Romney strolled out onto the track for photos and handshakes, the number 26 car, emblazoned with 'Santorum 2012' moved slowly past him into the pit lane.

Romney grew up in Michigan but faces a tough fight after opposing President Barack Obama's bailout of the U.S. auto industry.
