Trump to attend the Daytona 500, report says

President Trump hosts Governors Ball at White House

The accumulation of the Daytona 500 and a new NASCAR Cup racing season is finally here, with the Daytona Duels that will take place on Thursday night. "Gentleman, start your engines", has been a staple of races around the country and world for decades.

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.

"Daytona International Speedway has been privileged to have hosted several sitting Presidents of the United States over our history", Daytona International Speedway President Chip Wile said in a statement.

Denny Hamlin won the Daytona 500 past year, while Austin Dillon claimed the victory in 2018.

Trump will become the second sitting U.S. president to attend the Daytona 500. George W. Bush attended in 2004.


Officials also are preparing for first lady Melania Trump and Gov. Ron DeSantis to attend as well.

President Trump may be going to the races this weekend.

During an appearance at the White House previous year with 2018 Cup Series champion Joey Logano, Trump said of the sport: "You never forget what matters most - God, family and country".

Verizon is partnering with Nascar ahead of the Daytona 500 race to modernise 12 Nascar-owned racetracks and bring race fans, drivers and teams improved connectivity. "All I want to do is just go home". "We literally - we covered four blocks in like a second".
