(Indianapolis, Ind.) - Donald Trump has fired himself as driver of the pace car in the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500.
Trump accepted the job last month, but stepped down Thursday saying it would conflict with a possible presidential campaign.
A number of pundits and more than 16,000 people in a Facebook group cried out against Trump as the pace driver because of his claims about President Barack Obama’s birth certificate.
The Indianapolis Motor Speedway has been extended an invitation to succeed Trump as the pace car driver.
