President Donald Trump is already set to start the engines at the NASCAR Daytona 500 car race, but according to a Fox News report he’s also planning to do a lap around the course in the presidential limousine.

The president was announced to be the grand marshal to the opening ceremonies of the race on Sunday, and give the famous command, “gentleman, start your engines!”

The report that he will also take a lip in “the Beast” came from Fox News White House correspondent John Roberts, who said they had several sources for the story.

“Multiple Sources tell @FoxNews that @realDonaldTrump is planning to take a lap at the @DISupdates Daytona International Speedway in the ‘Beast’ presidential limo ahead of the Daytona 500,” Roberts tweeted.

“It’s not 100%, but that is the plan at the moment,” he added.
The report created a stir on social media with supporters praising the president, but some critics booing the report.

WFLA-8 also reported that there are plans to have him attend the race drivers meeting.

“I’m told, I don’t think it’s official, but I’m told that he may be in the drivers meeting! So, that doesn’t happen everyday! He doesn’t come in to our sports meetings!” joked WFLA reporter Dan Lucas.

“That’s kinda cool for these guys!” he added.

Trump will be the first sitting president to attend the Daytona 500 since former President George W. Bush in 2004.

      I know, right? Ever since media got super lazy, & started letting “the average Joe/Jane” become reporters, I don’t know how many (I think I’m in the thousands by now, lost count a long time ago) errors I have counted. And editing? They trashed that long ago.

  • Stephen Russell says:

    No sitting President ever has done that: 1. attended NASCAR Race 2. Race in Limo around track’

  • Alison says:

    This may send thousands of liberals off the edge! Beautiful!

  • Joy DB says:

    How can that happen THIS weekend?!? Trump is scheduled to be in the CA Desert (Palm Springs/Rancho Mirage) for a round of golf (probably at Sunnylands, the former Annenberg Estate) and a fundraising event (lunch?) today/tomorrow (Sat., Feb. 15). And then he’s scheduled to fly to AZ (Phoenix?) and another fundraising dinner event there! Also, tonight/last night (??) he was scheduled for a fundrraising event in Beverly Hills (before flying to the Desert). Or is all of that NEXT weekend (Feb.21-23) instead?! HELP!!
