Trump becomes first president named Daytona 500 grand marshal

via Fox News.

Not as a driver, but as grand marshal, which means he gets to give the “start your engines” command to the 43 entrants inThe Great American Race.

Trump was endorsed in 2016 by former NASCAR CEO Brian France Jr., has hosted series champions Joey Logano and Martin Truex Jr. at The White House and gave NASCAR team owner Roger Penske the Presidential Medal of Freedom last year.

And while the president won’t be getting on the track, his name will. Just not on Sunday.

Joe Nemechek will be driving a Mike Harmon Racing car in the NASCAR Xfinity Series race on Saturday sponsored by the Patriots PAC of America that will have Trump/Pence 2020 logos on it. You can hear live radio coverage of the race on The Big 920 starting at 12:30 on Sunday
