It came together at the last minute. Apparently, the deal had to role through Trump’s lawyers before the graphics went on the sprint car. Understandably, those guys are surely busy as Donald Trump leads most polls across the board when it comes to the Republican Presidential campaign.

The SKS Racing team has stated, Trump is helping out with tires and fuel. The Trump tour bus has a spot reserved at the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame and is currently parked in that location.
“We have a lot of messages on our car,” Williams said of the Donald Trump sprint car. “We have the military on one side and cancer awareness on the other side.
“We are all about sending a message out. I believe Trump is a supporter of both the military and cancer research, and they are good people.”
“A friend of mine has a party bus, and he wrapped Donald Trump’s logo on it for Tana Goertz, who is his Iowa campaign manager,” Williams team member Jeff Morris said.
“They are going around to the Iowa State Fair and other places where there are a lot of people. So when they wrapped the bus, they asked if we would wrap our race car for this week’s Knoxville Nationals.”
Continued Morris, “We told them there is about 30,000 people down here, so they thought it was a good idea.”
“Trump Racing fans come see us at the
