President Trump thrilled the crowd at Sunday's Daytona 500 NASCAR race and those in attendance will be talking for years about his epic entry.
The leader of the free world was picked to serve as grand marshal at this year's event and rumors that he would take a lap around the track in his beefed-up presidential limo known as "The Beast" have had fans buzzing for days.
In addition to being a true patriot who bleeds red, white and blue, Trump is also a master showman and his arrival in Daytona Beach was one for the ages.
With the overflow crowd at Daytona International Speedway cheering and changing USA! USA! USA! the president had Air Force One fly directly over the track at 800 feet on the way to landing.
Then when Trump arrived at the venue, "The Beast" was rolled out to the delight of the adoring crowd; a fan base that is as patriotic as the POTUS and can be counted on to enthusiastically support him come November in the key swing state.
The 22,000 pound black beauty has doors that are eight inches thick, with five-inch windows and according to a Fox News report:
...it's believed to have its own oxygen supply -- in case of a biological or chemical attack -- as well as “protection against ballistics and explosives, built-in tear gas launchers and an emergency medical suite equipped with a supply of the president’s blood type.”
To sum it up, "The Beast" is the most bad-assed ride outside of the Batmobile.
For those at home watching the race, the Trump campaign unveiled a brand new ad that touted his accomplishments and promised that the best is yet to come.
The ad along with the rousing reception for Trump is guaranteed to torment liberals who will be grinding their teeth into nubs and angrily jamming their fingers into their iPhones to wail in outrage on Twitter.
In an interesting historical note, the first president to be honored at the speedway was Ronald Reagan back in 1984 when he delivered the command to “Gentlemen, start your engines!” at the Firecracker 400.
President George W. Bush was also named as grand marshal in 2004.
Like most of Florida, Daytona is Trump Country and those who are there will cherish the memory and tell the story to their grandchildren one day in the future.
The best is yet to come!
