Description

A source affiliated with the Indianapolis Motor Speedway tells us Donald Trump will not be the driver of the pace car for this month's 100th anniversary of the Indianapolis 500 after fans complained he was too politically motivated. The move comes after widespread negative response from fans and outsiders. A Facebook group founded by Indianapolis attorney Michael Wallack devoted to bumping Trump has already grown to over 17,000 supporters within a few weeks. Wallack and others say the race doesn't need the spotlight Trump lugs with him. It's official, Donald Trump will not be the Indy 500 pace car driver, although he's telling people it's because the event may interfere with his presidential campaign. You know, because getting yourself in front of millions of voters in an important swing state for free is a big interference.
