Reagan Centennial Painted on Clint Bowyer’s NASCAR race car

Ronald Reagan was the first sitting President to attend a NASCAR race when he attended the Firecracker 400 at Daytona in 1984, a race Richard “The King” Petty won. Yesterday, at the Auto Club 400 in Fontana, California, Clint Bowyer’s car had the Reagan Centennial logo painted on its hood.
