Trump Makes Historic Visit to Coca-Cola 600, Meets with Gold Star Families

Former President Donald Trump made history on Sunday by becoming the first sitting or former president to attend a race at the Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, North Carolina. Trump, the GOP’s presumptive presidential nominee, arrived at the Coca-Cola 600 NASCAR race to a cheering crowd and chants of “USA.”

Before attending the race, Trump flew over the event in his private plane, dubbed “Trump Force One,” generating excitement among the audience. “Passing over the Charlotte Motor Speedway now – Very exciting! DJT,” the former president wrote on Truth Social.

During his visit, Trump met with Gold Star families and observed a Memorial Day moment of silence alongside race car owner Richard Childress. He also watched the C-17 flyover from the track and visited the top of the speedway as the Honor and Remember flag was rolled out.

Trump’s appearance at the Coca-Cola 600 comes amid ongoing Democrat lawfare that has failed to keep the president from campaigning and visiting with supporters. Despite the unfair and oppressive actions by President Joe Biden’s friends in the legal system, Trump maintains a 1% lead over the unpopular president.
