NASCAR Twitter fans are going crazy over a music video featuring driver Tim Viens. The rap video, titled ‘Back The Blue’ features Viens standing with $2020 bills featuring Donald Trump’s face. Two of Viens’ custom trucks with decals of “Trump 2020” and “Back The Blue” also appear in the video.
Lyrics include “I stand with the president. I stand with the blue,” mentioning ‘All Lives Matter’ and media’s perceptions. Viens wears his race suit while Forgiato Blow rocks a Trump-Pence race shirt and towel. Bryson Gray, another musician out-spoken in his support for President Trump also appears in the video, holding a ‘Thin Blue Line’ American flag.
The No. 49 CMI Motorsports Trump truck has been a trademark of Viens’, though CMI mentioned on Monday via Twitter that vehicle will be replaced soon. The Back The Blue scheme had a one-race appearance.
Forgiato Blow dropped a music video earlier this summer featuring Colt Fold, who wrote Dirt Road Anthem with Jason Aldean. This song titled “4 More Years” is also a song of support for President Trump. Ford raps in his recognizable country drawl in the music video that shows a Trump boat rally on a large lake and plenty of the 45th president’s merchandise.
Tim Viens uses the motto “Make America Fast Again” as a nod to President Trump’s campaign motto. While his Trump truck may be retiring soon, it is unclear if the Trump-Pence suit will also be replaced or how Viens plans to continue his visible support for Trump.
