President Donald Trump made quite the splash by showing up to Nascar's Daytona 500, by flying Air Force One only 800 feet above the track, the only problem is...his campaign manager took credit for an in-flight moment that was not really from this event!

Trump's re-election campaign manager, Brad Parscale, decided to share the shocking moment on Twitter where the President did such a close flyover.

“@realDonaldTrump won the #Daytona500 before the race even started," he tweeted along with a photo of an airplane creeping over the crowd. (See Above)

The problem is....the photo was from 2004!

Turns out, many social media investigators pointed out the photo was actually taken 16 years ago, as President George W. Bush's plane was leaving the Nascar event.

Of course, Parscale deleted the tweet and replaced it with a real photo from a moment when Trump was arriving. Many were quick to point out the bleachers in Trump's photo were less crowded than in Bush's version. (See Above)

However, It has been reported, the race was sold out with a capacity crowd of over 100,000 face fans.

The fun didn't end there because the photographer who took the 2004 picture, Jonathan Ferrey, joked about the situation telling CNN he wasn't even at this year's Daytona 500.

“I have a lot of talented colleagues photographing the Daytona 500 this year,” Ferrey told CNN.

He continued, “I am unfortunately not there today, but apparently I won the Daytona 500 photography before the race even started.”

As we reported, after arriving in Daytona, Trump took his limo (The Beast) and his Presidental motorcade on a victory lap around the track before the race began.

The President addressed the crowd after stepping out of the limo and said, “Daytona International Speedway, we love our country and it’s truly an honor to be with all of you at the great American race." He then gave the famous line, "Gentlemen, start your engines!"

The race was stopped short and postponed due to back weather, and it will resume today.
