The Daytona 500 is the biggest NASCAR race of the season. And this coming Sunday, it’ll have a special guest in attendance.
President Donald Trump will be in attendance to see the “The Great American Race.” The 62nd annual event will take place on Sunday at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida at 2:30 pm EST on FOX Sports.
“The Daytona 500 is one of the greatest events in sports and the prestigious season-opening event to the NASCAR Cup Series,” Daytona International Speedway President Chip Wile said. “Daytona International Speedway has been privileged to have hosted several sitting Presidents of the United States over our history. We’re honored that the President of the United States has chosen to experience the pageantry and excitement of ‘The Great American Race’ by attending Sunday’s 62nd annual Daytona 500.”
