President Trump Takes A Lap In ‘Beast’ Limo At Daytona 500
President Donald Trump took a lap around the track ahead of Sunday’s Daytona 500 in Florida.
With first lady Melania Trump aboard, the president rode his “beast” limousine around one of the world’s most storied race tracks. Fox News White House correspondent John Roberts first reported Saturday that Trump was planning to take a lap before the race, where the president had previously been slated to serve as the Grand Marshal.
Trump is just the second president in U.S. history to attend a Dayton 500, with then-President George W. Bush also attending the event in 2004.
During his presidency, Trump has attended several major sporting events, including two college football national championship games, a World Series game, and an Alabama-LSU regular season football game.
The president has mostly received warm receptions at these events, with the exception of a World Series game in Washington, D.C., where Trump was loudly booed when showed on the jumbotron.
