President Trump turned to NASCAR champion Martin Truex Jr. at a White House event Monday and asked the driver if he ever gets lonely leading a race.
Truex replied that he never does.
“All of the crew members who brought the team to NASCAR championship, and what they did was truly incredible. It was an incredible season,” President Trump said.
“Just incredible. The entire NASCAR field spent 2017 chasing 78. I’ll tell you, they chased him. I’d be watching, they’re always chasing you. You won eight races and including four wins in the NASCAR playoffs. Throughout the season you earned 19 top-five finishes and led more than 2,000 laps.” (RELATED: President Trump Just Turned To An Olympic Athlete And Congratulated Her In The Trump-iest Way Possible)
“Does it get lonely being in front?” Trump asked Truex.
“No,” he replied.
“Not at all. I had the feeling he would say that,” Trump said. (RELATED: President Trump Recognizes Army Lieutenant General — Stops Speech To Thank Him)
