Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump picked up a few more endorsements Monday, this time from the NASCAR world.

NASCAR chairman and CEO Brian France appeared at a rally in Valdosta, Ga., to express support for Trump along with NASCAR Hall of Famer Bill Elliott and drivers Chase Elliott, Ryan Newman and David Ragan.

“If the people that like and watch NASCAR vote for Donald Trump, they can cancel the election right now,” Trump said to cheers. “Nobody else can win. Nobody.”

After Trump introduced France as a man who has done a “legendary” job for NASCAR, France took the microphone briefly to praise a man he’s known for more than 20 years.

“He wins with his family,” France said. “Any of his children, you’d be proud of have them as part of your family. That’s how I judge a winner, how somebody manages their family and raises their family.”

In a statement released by Trump’s campaign, France added the candidate’s “leadership and strength are desperately needed.”

Bill Elliott, who Trump called “one of the great drivers of the world, in history,” told the crowd “what (Trump) can do for our country, I’m all for it.”

“We need a change, guys,” Elliott said. “That’s all there is to it. And I think this is the man for the job.”
