On Saturday, the Trump Unity Bridge will roll into Brandon Twp. MI to kick off the “Let’s Go Brandon” Festival, a celebration of the America First agenda.

This time, however, Rob Cortis, the owner of the Trump Unity Bridge, won’t be behind the wheel. Instead, the person who’ll be driving his truck that pulls the instant Trump party is none other than the iconic Indy 500 driver Ricky Treadway

Rob Cortis, a personal friend of patriot Ricky Treadway, asked him to be the guest of honor at the “Let’s Go Brandon” Festival in the small town of Brandon, MI. on Saturday, November 20th from 1-4 PM ET.

The Let’s Go Brandon phenomenon began at a NASCAR  race when an NBC reporter was trying to interview the winner of the NASCAR race, driver Brandon Brown when the chant “F— Joe Biden” chant was that was frequently heard at sporting events broke out.

The reporter tried desperately to distract by saying the crowd was chanting “Let’s go, Brandon” when it was clearly not the case. Next, she tried to talk over the chants, but that didn’t work either.

The less offensive “Let’s Go Brandon” chant quickly replaced the popular chant. The meaning is the same; it’s just a little more “G” rated.  

Nine years after Ricky Treadway won the 1997 Indy 500 race, the iconic movie Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, which was loosely fashioned after the driver, was released.

Here’s a vintage video of his incredible victory:

In addition to Ricky Treadway’s guest appearance, the “Let’s Go Brandon” Festival will include live entertainment, food trucks, “Let’s Go Brandon” merchandise, and more. The rally will be held at Crossman Park, located at 437 Mill Street in Ortonville, MI.

Let’s Go Brandon fest participants are asked to bring American flags, handmade signs (always in good taste), or just attend to make their voice heard.  The event will be held rain or shine, so dress for the weather.  The Trump Unity Bridge is expected to participate.

America First supporters will be energized by the Let’s Go Brandon fest and will learn tips about how we—as voters—-need to do a better job in who we elect in 2022,” said Marian Sheridan, Grassroots Vice-Chair for the Michigan Republican Party.” Let’s Go Brandon rallies like this one are symbolic of the discontent about the many political failures that are on full display.  

Polling shows the vast majority of Americans understand that their country is going in the wrong direction, said Rosanne Ponkowski, President of Michigan Conservative Coalition. “The Let’s Go Brandon phrase has become a popular way to politely communicate that Americans are fed up with Washington, D.C.”  

A previous version of our article identified Ricky Treadway as a NASCAR driver, we have corrected the title to reflect that he was an INDY 500 driver. Ricky Treadway and his opinions are in no way associated with NASCAR.
