The NASCAR Cup Series car driven by Corey LaJoie will have a “Trump 2020” paint scheme for nine races, including Sunday’s Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, following a sponsorship by a political action committee.
Patriots of America PAC, which is supporting the reelection bid of President Donald Trump, will sponsor the No. 32 Ford Mustang, which is owned by Go Fas Racing and will have a red, white and blue paint scheme.

“With an estimated 75 million NASCAR fans out there, I was surprised that about 15 million of those fans are not registered voters,” LaJoie said in a statement. “I will give my best effort to get NASCAR fans registered to vote, through our team efforts on and off the track. When they see the car, hopefully it makes them race to the polls in November.”
In 2016, a Cup Series car driven by Reed Sorenson had a Trump-Mike Pence paint scheme for a race in Texas that was just days before the presidential election.
