My first reaction was "Open that fucker up and stuff it into those banked turns!" but then I checked the specs, what little is known about it, and apparently it's got a top speed of only about 60 or so. It'd probably fall off the banking, or at the very least be a handful. Not worth the risk of embarrassment, say nothing of the expense.

Got to appeal to his base. It is NASCAR after all. He speaks the typical fan's language and values. Not exactly a hard sell. Bush did it back in 2004. Ya know, that Air Force One photo Trump's bright campaign manager tweeted and deleted. LOL

My thoughts exactly. I can't imagine what that beast weighs. I posted in another thread that I wanted to watch but didn't want to watch for fear of some embarrassment as it slid down the the banks.

I hadn't seen the updated beast. HUGE improvement over the last few iterations. It drove by me once a few months ago (during UN general assembly) when I was walking home but I didn't see the front end.

The other hazard would have been getting up to the wall, next to the crowd, and having one or another of the car's countermeasures tripped. Would be a PR nightmare if something in the crowd made a loud "bang" and the car let loose a cloud of tear gas and a volley of buckshot. Talk about having a good gesture backfire on you...
