Protest aims to bump Trump from Indy 500 pace car
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - May 5, 2011 (WPVI) -- The pick a month ago of Donald Trump to drive the Indy 500 pace car is causing some heat for race officials.
A Facebook page calling on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway to dump Trump has more than 10,000 supporters, many objecting to Trump's questioning of whether President Barack Obama was born in the U.S. and his suggestion that Obama was a poor student who didn't deserve to be admitted to Harvard's law school.
Indianapolis attorney Michael Wallack tells The Indianapolis Star that he started the Facebook page April 8 because he thought Trump's selection made no sense.
Track spokesman Doug Boles says it has also received comments supportive of Trump's involvement in the May 29 race and that officials are considering the complaints.
