Race Chaser Online reports that today in Valdosta, Georgia, NASCAR CEO Brian France endorsed the presidential campaign of Donald Trump.
Also endorsing Trump were current drivers Chase Elliott, Ryan Newman, and David Ragan. NASCAR Hall of Famer Bill Elliott (father of Chase) also made an endorsement.
The rally in Valdosta was held a day before the Georgia Primary on Super Tuesday and the day after a NASCAR Sprint Cup race in Hampton at the Atlanta Motor Speedway.
Interviews with fans attending the races this weekend indicated that fans a reporter talked to were impressed with Marco Rubio’s recent attacks on Trump.
Former candidate Rick Perry’s campaign sponsored a car driven by Bobby Labonte ahead of his 2012 campaign, and Perry often showed up at races at the Texas Motor Speedway.
