It is not clear if the Trump campaign paid for the promotion.

Driver Korbin Forrister also promoted Trump in July 2015, plastering his unsponsored truck with pro-Trump stickers in NASCAR’s Camping World Truck Series at the Eldora Speedway in New Weston, Ohio.

NASCAR CEO Brian France and several former and current NASCAR drivers backed Trump in early February during the GOP’s presidential primaries. France announced his support before Super Tuesday in Valdosta, Ga., alongside active racers Chase Elliot, Ryan Newman and David Lee Regan and retired competitor Bill Elliot.

“Mr. Trump is changing American politics forever and his leadership and strength are desperately needed,” France said on Feb. 29. "He has had an incredible career and achieved tremendous success. This is what we need for our country.”

“He is a leader representing strength and common sense solutions,” Elliot added while announcing his own support.
