Not a single boo could be heard today.
On Saturday, the NASCAR crowd erupted into chants of ‘4 more years’ and ‘USA’ as President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump emerged from their limo and were introduced at the Daytona International Speedway Sunday.
The crowd welcomed the president with the chants as they were announced ahead of “God Bless America.”
“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,” Trump said during his speech.
Along with hsi speech, the President was given the opportunity to give the starting command to start Sunday’s race.
“Daytona International Speedway, we love our country and it’s truly an honor to be with all of you at the great American race. Gentlemen, start your engines!” Trump said as the racers began to prep.
