Trump will attend Daytona 500, NASCAR says”

A deal came together very late with Gaunt Brothers Racing but he would have no points to fall back on as a buffer to make the season-opener. "Gentleman, start your engines", has been a staple of races around the country and world for decades. Track president Chip Wile confirmed the news in a release.

Daytona Beach International Airport said additional security measures would be in place at the airport due to the president's visit Sunday. "We're honored that the president of the United States has chosen to experience the pageantry and excitement of 'The Great American Race'". George W. Bush attended the Daytona 500 in 2004.

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. Trump is the first to be given an honorary role in pre-race ceremonies.

The White House has not commented on the reports, but Trump is scheduled to be staying at his home in Palm Beach this weekend.

Trump hosted NASCAR Champion Joey Logano at the White House last May.

In preparation for Trump's visit, the U.S. Secret Service tweeted that a 30-mile no-drone zone will be enforced around the speedway on race day.

Denny Hamlin won the 61st annual Daytona 500 previous year. "We went so fast".
