President Donald Trump is expected to attend the Daytona 500 this weekend.

While the White House has not officially confirmed it, there are several hints.

Daytona Beach International Airport said additional security measures will be in place at the airport due to the president's visit Sunday.

The U.S. Secret Service also sent out a tweet that they are securing Daytona International Speedway by providing a 30-mile "no drone zone."

The Commander in Chief will be in Daytona during the biggest NASCAR race of the year, which starts Sunday at 2:30 p.m.

Denny Hamlin won the 61st annual Daytona 500 last year.
