Apparently, all the action at Sunday’s Daytona 500 won’t be confined to the racetrack. Officials at Daytona International Speedway say President Donald Trump will be attending the NASCAR season opener.

Although there’s been no official announcement from the White House, Trump’s scheduled to spend the weekend in his Palm Beach home this weekend.

But the biggest clue has been dropped by an agency that’s supposed to be good at keeping secrets. In a tweet posted Wednesday, the Secret Service wrote, “Ladies and Gentlemen start your engines — but not your drones. The Secret Service is securing the NASCAR Daytona 500 by providing a 30 mile ‘No Drone Zone.’ Enjoy the race.”

Are you planning on attending the race? Does this change your plans one way or another?
