President Donald Trump is expected to attend the famous Daytona 500 NASCAR race on Saturday, according to reports.
The Orlando Sentinel reported the FAA advised the DeLand Airport there was a strong possibility that President Trump would fly into the area to attend the 62nd annual running of the race.
The White House did not confirm the visit in a response to a request from Breitbart News.
The last time a president visited a NASCAR race was President George W. Bush in 2004.
The president praised NASCAR and its fans while honoring champion driver Joey Logano in April of 2019.
“NASCAR is not only a thrilling display of skill and power but a celebration of the American spirit. So true,” Trump said. “No matter who wins the race, you never forget what matters most: God, family, and country. And nobody embodies that more than you folks, I’ll tell you.”
In 2018, Trump praised NACAR drivers for standing for the national anthem.
“One thing I know about NASCAR, they do indeed, stand for the playing of the national anthem,” he said. “Right? They do indeed.”
