President Trump To Visit Daytona 500

30-mile "no drone zone" announced ahead of race


Daytona Beach, FL - The Commander-In-Chief is set to visit Volusia County this weekend, all for the Great American Race.

Joane Magley, Director of Marketing and Customer Experience at the Daytona Beach International Airport, confirmed reports that President Donald Trump is scheduled to fly into Daytona this Sunday (February 16th).

Magley said she can offer no other information, besides the fact that he will be visiting.

The United States Secret Service also announced a 30-mile no fly zone for drones, which covers almost all of Volusia County.

President Trump will be the fourth president in history to visit the Daytona 500.  Presidents Ronald Regan and George H. W. Bush appeared at the 500 back in 1984 and 1992, respectively. The last was President George Bush in 2004.

President George H. W. Bush also made an appearance back in 1978 when he was still the acting CIA director.
