President Barack Obama will welcome six-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson and his Hendrick Motorsports team members to the White House in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday to honor his 2013 championship.
The visit will continue a tradition begun by President Obama of honoring athletes and sports teams for their efforts to give back to their communities.
Johnson's visits to the White House have spanned two administrations and 12 years, beginning with his first of three visits with President George W. Bush in 2003.
