Obama congratulates NASCAR driver Tony Stewart, asks for media advice

“It’s good to see number 14 on the south lawn,” Obama said. “Every year I try to take a lap. Nobody let’s me do it, but I’m still holding out hope that at some point I’m going to be able to get behind the wheel.”

After hailing prominent NASCAR driver Jimmie Johnson as “one of the all time greats,” Obama turned his praise to 2011 champion Stewart.
