President Trump received a roaring welcome at the Daytona 500 race, with the crowd chanting “USA!” and “Four More Years!” upon his introduction.
Per Breitbart the president thanked the “tens of thousands of patriots“ gathered at the Daytona International Speedway in a short speech before the race.
“NASCAR fans never forget that no matter who wins the race, what matters most is God, family, country,” he said.
The president welcomed Gold Star families as guests to the race, thanking their fallen loved ones for their service.
“Rubber will burn, fans will scream and the great American race will begin,” Trump said.
The president delivered the famous lines at the beginning of the race, shouting “Gentlemen start your engines!” to begin the race.
