Politics and NASCAR – who would’ve thought.
Premium Motorsports announced Wednesday that Reed Sorenson’s No. 55 car will be branded in support of Donald Trump’s campaign at Texas Motor Speedway on Sunday. Election Day is two days later.
Sorenson, who sits 39th in the Sprint Cup Series standings, usually drives an unsponsored ride on Sundays. This week, his Toyota Camry will feature a patriotic paint scheme. The primarily white car features a starred ribbon running along the sides, with Trump’s campaign slogan “Make America Great Again” displayed on the hood and back of the car.
This isn’t the first time Trump’s campaign branding has made it to the racetrack.
In October, the campaign received a boost when Camping World Truck Series driver Austin Wayne Self featured a similar paint job on his truck at Talladega.
Earlier this year, another truck series driver Korbin Forrister splashed his black, unsponsored truck with ads in support of Trump.
