President Trump took the stage and gave an opening speech on DAYTONA 500:
TRUMP: “The Daytona 500 is a legendary display of roaring engines, soaring spirits of the Americans, scaled speed and power, that we’ve been hearing about for many years, the tens of thousands of patriots here today have come for the fast cars and the world-class motorsports. NASCAR fans never forget that no matter who wins the race, what matters most is god, family, and country.”
A few moments later he gave the command for drivers at Daytona 500 to start the engines as the crowd went crazy.

This was the first time a president, sitting or former, has ever held the role in what NASCAR bills as “The Great American Race,”
And here’s President Trump’s message to the drivers:
“God Bless you, we love you!”

Thousands of NASCAR fans chanted “USA, USA” as Air Force One flew about 800 feet over the Daytona 500. “America the Beautiful” played over the public address system as the plane came in for a landing. What an entrance, Mr. President! Watch:

Trump will visit the Daytona International Speedway for the “Great American Race” on Sunday. He’ll take part in the pre-race ceremony before personally announcing that the drivers should start their engines, an official familiar with plans said. Trump will also be driven partially around the track in his armored Cadillac limo, known as The Beast, and have a fly-by from Air Force One, the presidential jet.
And the moment finally came the beast entered the track:
