Today, Donald Trump gave the NASCAR community quite a thrill several times over.
President Trump set the tone when he had Air Force One buzz the crowd at Daytona just before his plane landed to attend the race…

And the Fans Go Wild
Democrats and all of America are about to find out how working-class Americans feel about their president.
When Trump arrived at Daytona and buzzed the crowd, it was like nothing that has ever been experienced at the Daytona 500 before.
Even Jeff Gordon, who spent decades in the sport, stated, “I have been to a lot of Daytona 500’s, Chris, NEVER have I felt the excitement and energy [like he does today]”
Around the track, the fans went ballistic, as cheers could be heard when Trump did his flyover and there were more than a few rounds of “U.S.A.!” breaking out when Trump passed over the track.

In addition to the flyover, Trump did a quick lap in the BEAST, the presidential limo.
The Beast! #Daytona500

Rumor has it he may do a few extra laps as well to lead the cars around the track.
President Trump will also be giving the order to “Start your engines,” which will surely send the entire track into a frenzy.
While other presidents have attended this race, this is the first time a sitting president has ever served as the Grand Marshall and given the order to start the race (Reagan did it from Air Force One, but not at the actual track).
As the day plays out and videos of these events become available, we will update this story so you can see firsthand just how much REAL Americans love their president.

“For 500, heart-pounding miles, these fierce competitors will chase the checkered flag, fight for the Harley J. Earl trophy and make their play for pure American glory and that is what it is pure American glory.”pic.twitter.com/6txFAcQRyk
