President Trump Will Attend Daytona 500 NASCAR Race on Sunday…

The White House has confirmed that President Trump will attend the 63rd running of the Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway on Sunday, February 16th. The big race starts at 1:00pm on Fox.  [On Saturday Joe Nemecheck will race Trump/Pence 2020]

The U.S. Secret Service tweeted Wednesday that it was securing the Daytona Speedway. The security team noted drones are banned within a 30-mile radius of the event.

Also, Joe Nemechek will be using patriotic colors of ‘TRUMP / PENCE 2020’ in the NASCAR Xfinity Series season opener on Saturday for the Racing Experience 300.

[NASCAR] “The Daytona 500 is one of the greatest events in sports and the prestigious season-opening event to the NASCAR Cup Series,” track president Chip Wile said in a statement. “Daytona International Speedway has been privileged to have hosted several sitting Presidents of the United States over our history. We’re honored that the President of the United States has chosen to experience the pageantry and excitement of ‘The Great American Race’ by attending Sunday’s 62nd annual Daytona 500.”

Previously, Ronald Reagan attended the 1984 July race at Daytona, which was Richard Petty’s 200th career Cup Series win.  George H.W. Bush also attended a summer Daytona race, in 1992. George W. Bush attended the 2004 Daytona 500, won by Dale Earnhardt Jr.  (link)

    I attended the 2004 Daytona 500 when George W Bush visited.

    Back then, my seats were on the backstretch.

    The airport is right next to the Daytona International Speedway and Air Force One was parked right by the shuttle drop off for the backstretch.

    The closest I have ever been to AF1, very memorable.

    Good one Sundance … from 2011.

    Michelle Obama and Jill Biden were booed at NASCAR’s season finale at the Homestead-Miami Speedway on Sunday. The appearance was part of an initiative to honors military troops and families. They first lady and vice president’s wife also served as grand marshals for the big race.

    At the beginning of the race, an announcer introduced the two women, who were met with a loud combination of both jeers and boos. This is hardly the first time the first and second lady have been booed at a sporting event. Their appearance at World Series games in both 2009 and 2011 were met with a less-than-warm welcome.

    It’s to bad NASCAR decided to sign on the political dotted line and be just another puppet when they took the to big to fail money from Osama along with all other sports teams. NASCAR use to be fun to watch and now it sucks and has become as political as the NFL.


  13. MustangBlues says:

    President Donald J. Trump is the best; perfect for him to be present among so many good Americans loving citizens, and viewed on tv world wide.

    President Trump is such a great leader, good man, and lover of America. We are blessed; America is Saved!!

    We the People must — MAGA vote to win the house, expand the lead in the senate, and elect Mr. President Trump to steer the Ship of State on course for Keeping America Great.

    Our progeny depends on it.

    Hot Damn! I saw that he may attend earlier this week. I will NEVER forget the camera shot when President was landing in AF1 while showing Richard Petty leading his final win at the Daytona race! It was EPIC!

    NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series driver Tim Viens will run a Trump/Pence 2020 No. 03 livery in the NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona International Speedway on Friday.

    There will be 2 Trump/Pence entries at Daytona this weekend. One truck in Fridays race and one car on Saturday.

    Lollzzz…the Mockingbirds will have a ball with this. They already think only backwoods hayseeds and hillbillies watch NASCAR.

    I can already hear Madcow – with self-righteous indignation – smugly announcing that “Trump is attending the Daytona 500”, while looking down her nose with disgust.

    Damn, I love this guy!

    I stopped watching Nascar after #2 Rusty Wallace stopped racing and “Bump & Run” became SOP..


    • Gary says:

      Hard to find a good ,honest series isn’t it? I pay to watch U.S.A.C. and W.O.O. sprints on the internet cause frankly, IRL, NASCAR, F1 have all become so predictable. IMSA and Grand Am are fun but it’s popularity has dropped off over the past few decades. I still do INDY every year but now that the Hulman 100 isn’t being run at the fairgrounds it’s just not the same.

      “Go ahead and roll two rocks down a hill, we’ll watch em race”……My Dad.

    We like something we can understand easily. Like cheeseburgers.
    If you’d like a bit more intellectually challenging racing, try F1…..Silverstone, Nürburgring, Monza, Monaco, Brands Hatch. The stuff of legend.


    • Gary says:

      OK, then we can call the winners in advance. Remember when F-1 had…..passing?
      The days of Senna, Prost, Mansel, and their ilk are over. You wouldn’t know Schumacher’s name if a mechanic never decided to cut and re-weld Senna’s steering column.

      Intellectually challenging?, ask Rubens Barrichello about that. “Rubens….pull over and let Micheal win please..over”


  24. Wow awesome looking Trump and Pence 2020 NASCAR,👍❤️

  26. 200k people at an outdoor Trump Rally shouting USA USA USA .. and then The Great American Race begins .. blasted out on TV and streamed online.

    Our local rag (Daytona Beach News Journal) is a typical AP outlet whose editor (Pat Rice) has ordered his reporters to pretend to be thrilled that Trump is coming to town. It’s funny to read their strained prose this morning as they walk a tightrope between their default Trump-hate and the imperative to not anger the thousands of race fans in town who love our president.

    Good Times in Volusia County and The Best Is Yet To Come –

      Wow, the News Journal is still around?
      I remember when they refused to change the name of the “Firecracker 400” for years after it went commercial.
