    Multiple fights broke out across Daytona Beach during Memorial Day weekend resulting in a shooting incident that injured six people, but no arrests have been made. The Daytona Police Department and the Volusia County Sheriff Office led a joint effort to deescalate many of the different incidents, but said during Sunday press conference that there were 'no major fights.' But several videos shared across social media show the opposite, with large crowds of both men and women involved in tussles.

    The Centers for Disease Control is grappling with a massive outbreak of Trump Derangement Syndrome among Democrats and the Mainstream Media following pre-race festivities on Sunday at the Daytona 500. President Trump was named grand marshal of "The Great American Race" and his appearance sent leftists scampering to their designated safe spaces. Tens of thousands of race fans cheered, "USA, USA" as Air Force One flew about 800 feet over the speedway as "America the Beautiful" played over the public address system. When the president arrived he was greeted with spectators waving "Make America Great Again" flags and chants of...

    DAYTONA BEACH -- The Daytona 500 has been postponed by rain for the first time since 2012, dampening NASCAR’s season opener that started with a ballyhooed visit from President Donald Trump. The race was postponed after two lengthy delays totaling more than three hours. The race will now begin at 4 p.m. Monday and be broadcast live on Fox. It’s the second time in 62 years that “The Great American Race” will finish on a Monday. The first delay of the day came moments after the presidential motorcade completed a ceremonial parade lap around the 2 1/2-mile track. Trump’s armored...

    While NASCAR fans were left disappointed by the Daytona 500 and the rain that caused havoc and postponed the race until Monday, the entire event was already different thanks to President Donald Trump. Due to Trump’s presence, security for The Great American Race was tighter than ever before. Trump is the second sitting president to attend the race and was named grand marshal at the event. But Trump’s supporters will have one favorite at the race today. Joe Nemechek, who drives part-time for Mike Harmon Racing, was among the competitors and turned heads with his vehicle. He was seen...

    In what many deem a stroke of political genius, President Trump served today as Grand Marshal of the Daytona 500 NASCAR race. He vowed to take a lap in the armored presidential limousine serving as a pace car, and did. Here are two short videos that show some of the action: As you would expect, the president got an enthusiastic reception from the crowd of up to 200,000. NASCAR is famously patriotic, and Trump is a patriotic president. That may turn out to be the most fundamental difference between Trump and his Democratic opponent in November. In 1972,...

    President Trump took the stage and gave an opening speech on DAYTONA 500: TRUMP: “The Daytona 500 is a legendary display of roaring engines, soaring spirits of the Americans, scaled speed and power, that we’ve been hearing about for many years, the tens of thousands of patriots here today have come for the fast cars and the world-class motorsports. NASCAR fans never forget that no matter who wins the race, what matters most is god, family, and country.” A few moments later he gave the command for drivers at Daytona 500 to start the engines as the crowd went crazy....

    "You OK?" the appraiser said as the man went down to the ground, heels over head. "Don't fall. I'm not done." An Air Force veteran fell backward to the ground in disbelief after learning a watch he purchased for $345.97 nearly a half-century ago could go for several hundred thousand dollars. The man, featured this week in PBS's popular show “Antiques Roadshow,” showed his virtually unworn 1971 Rolex Oyster Cosmograph to appraiser Peter Planes. The veteran, who has not been identified, explained he was stationed in southeast Asia in the 1970s when he became fascinated by Rolex watches after seeing...

    rint This Article >> Jack Roush’s teams had a remarkable run in the Rolex 24 At Daytona, winning the leading GT class nine consecutive times from 1985 through 1993. Roush sat out the 1994 Rolex 24, concentrating on his burgeoning NASCAR Sprint Cup Series operation that took him out of sports car competition. But for 1995, he was called out for an encore – a challenge that Roush found too enticing to pass up. To celebrate Paul Newman’s 70th birthday, Paramount Pictures presented the veteran with a sponsored ride in the Rolex 24 – a Roush-prepared Ford Mustang. Joining Newman...

Gordon, who is driving in the prestigious endurance race for the first time in a decade, shared pictures of his injuries with his Wayne Taylor Racing teammates.
