One of the biggest races on this season’s schedule will take place in Indiana on Sunday. The annual tradition of the Brickyard 400 will also coincide with Fourth of July weekend. It’s in this that NASCAR driver Corey Lajoie has decided to introduce a red, white and blue themed Mustang for the race.
There’s one caveat here. Said car will include the writing “Trump 2020” throughout it.
“With an estimated 75 million NASCAR fans out there, I was surprised that about 15 million of those fans are not registered voters,” 28-year-old LaJoie said, via TMZ Sports.
This comes during the initial stages of a presidential campaign that pits President Trump against presumed Democratic candidate Joe Biden.
It also comes with NASCAR being in the news a lot recently. The league just banned the confederate flag at its events. Meanwhile, Bubba Wallace has been driving around with a “Black Lives Matter” car. He plans to continue using that car on Sunday.
Regardless of our opinion, the United States remains a country that honors the right of freedom of speech. It goes both ways.
