One of the biggest NASCAR races on this season’s schedule will take place in Indiana on Sunday. The annual Brickyard 400 will also coincide with Fourth of July weekend.
It’s in this that NASCAR driver Corey Lajoie has decided to introduce a red, white and blue-themed Mustang for the race.
And there’s a twist to the patriotic color scheme: The car will include the words “Trump 2020” on it.
“With an estimated 75 million NASCAR fans out there, I was surprised that about 15 million of those fans are not registered voters,” the 28-year-old LaJoie said, via TMZ Sports.
This comes during the initial stages of a presidential campaign that pits President Trump against presumptive Democratic candidate Joe Biden.
The Patriots of America political action committee partnered with Go Fas Racing for a "Trump 2020" paint scheme on LaJoie's No. 32 Ford Mustang, according to a statement from the team.
It also comes with NASCAR being in the news recently. The league banned the confederate flag at its events. Meanwhile, Bubba Wallace — NASCAR's only African-American driver — has been driving a “Black Lives Matter” car. He plans to continue using that car on Sunday.
