NASCAR: France endorsement of Trump is personal decision


NASCAR said Monday evening that an endorsement by its CEO Brian France of presidential candidate Donald Trump is a personal decision. It does not reflect and endorsement by the world’s largest stock car auto racing sanctioning body.  Trump began a rally in Valdosta, Georgia at Valdosta State University Monday evening with appearances by the NASCAR CEO and several current and former drivers including Ryan Newman, David Ragan, Bill Elliott and his son Chase Elliott, whom Trump described as “the hottest young driver in the world.”

“I’m telling you,” Trump told his supporters. “If people who like and watch NASCAR vote for Donald Trump they can cancel the election right nobody can win, nobody can win.”

The rally comes on the eve of the Super Tuesday when 11 states, including Georgia, will hold presidential primaries.
