The presidential limousine has pol position!

President Trump served as the grand marshal for the Daytona 500 on Sunday, lapping the track in his Cadillac stretch limo before revving up the race car drivers alongside first lady Melania Trump.

“Gentlemen, start your engines!” the president roared at the Daytona International Speedway in Florida.

“It’s truly an honor to be with all of you at the great American race,” he told the thousands of cheering fans gathered for the first and biggest race of the season.

Trump is only the second president ever to attend the Daytona 500, after George W. Bush in 2004. Previous grand marshals include J.J Watt, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Owen Wilson.
