Fans of NASCAR could be in for a real treat this week, as President Trump looks to make history in Florida.
The Commander in Chief is set to be the first sitting President to act as Field Marshal for the legendary Daytona 500 race...but that’s not all.
President Trump plans to take “The Beast,” his heavily armored presidential limousine, for a lap around the Daytona International Speedway track on Sunday, Fox Business reported.
Trump will serve as the grand marshal of the annual Daytona 500, NASCAR announced Friday — the first president to take that role.
He has cultivated NASCAR team owners — and its fans — for years, hosting series champs at the White House and awarding NASCAR team owner Roger Penske the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
Trump has also taken inordinate pride in his bulky presidential ride, a Cadillac limo built atop a heavy-duty truck chassis.
Of course, one would be remiss if they weren’t to see the connection between the unprecedented act and the President’s recent political turmoil.
This literal lap around the track could easily be seen as a “victory lap” on impeachment, after the President was granted an acquittal in the Senate trial that stemmed from the UkraineGate controversy.
