SCOOP: Multiple Sources tell @FoxNews that @realDonaldTrum is planning to take lap at the @DISupdates Daytona International Speedway in the “Beast” presidential limo ahead of the Daytona 500. It’s not 100%, but that is the plan at the moment.

Brian France will have to be put on life support if this happens.

A large Trump flag and flares shot out the back while making the lap would make it all that much more awesome. I can only hope

If he could accidentally step in front of it that might be the only thing that can save NASCAR

Supposedly the beast has a max speed of 62-68 MPH.

Looking at this thing and how heavy it looks, I'm inclined to believe that.

The doors are as thick as airliner's door....



The tires look like they belong on a dump truck. Just absolutely heavy.

I feel like it has to have a higher speed than that in case they need to escape from an attack or something. That seems really slow, I know it weighs a frickton with the armor though.

President Trump is taking part in this year’s Daytona 500.

Not as a driver, but as grand marshal, which means he gets to give the “start your engines” command to the 43 entrants in The Great American Race.

It’ll mark the first time a president, sitting or former, has ever held the role. The only other time a sitting president attended the race was when George Bush came in 2004, the year Dale Earnhardt Jr. won his first 500.

I got to talk to secret service agents about the beast approximately 15 years ago and they told me a bunch of unclassified stuff about it. They also said that I wouldn’t believe some of the classified stuff even if they told me.

The beast may not have a whole lot of speed but it has plenty to help out against an attack.

Yeah well, George Washington drove a Dodge in the American Revolution. I saw it on the internet.

How fast is the president's limo?
With 4,000 pounds (1,800 kg) of armor, "a bubble top thicker than the protective cockpit of an F-16 fighter", and a 340-horsepower (250 kW) V8 engine, the 11,000-pound (5,000 kg) car could still reach speeds of 100 miles per hour (160 km/h) — or 50 miles per hour (80 km/h) with four flat tires.
