Reports: Donald Trump Expected to Attend Daytona 500

USA stock vehicle racing series Nascar has announced a multi-year partnership with telco Verizon, designed in large part to improve the fan experience at its racetracks.

On Thursday, Daytona International Speedway announces that the Daytona 500 had sold out for the fifth consecutive year.

The Federal Aviation Administration has issued an airspace restriction around the Daytona International Speedway on Sunday, indicating Trump will be attending NASCAR's season-opening Daytona 500. "We have the most loyal and passionate fans in sports and we are forever grateful for their support". "We're honored that the president of the United States has chosen to experience the pageantry and excitement of 'The Great American Race'".

The last time a president visited a NASCAR race was President George W. Bush in 2004.

Should Trump attend the race, it would be just the latest high-profile sporting event he's made an appearance at in the past few months.

The U.S. Secret Service also sent out a tweet that they are securing Daytona International Speedway by providing a 30-mile "no drone zone".

Trump is scheduled to spend part of the Presidents Day weekend at his private club in Palm Beach, Florida. Last year, Trump also praised retired driver Mario Andretti, the Daytona 500 victor in 1967, reminiscing about a ride Andretti gave him in a race vehicle for his reality show "The Apprentice".
