President's Remarks

3:56 P.M. EDT

THE PRESIDENT: You know, it's a remarkable place. I can't tell you how thrilled I am to be with the Pettys and the champion race car drivers who have heard a call to help people who need help. And I wish our fellow citizens could see the physical layout here; and if you were here, you'd also feel the great sense of compassion. And, you know, the Petty family has been well-known for a long time in America. And they've been known as great athletes -- now they will be known as great humanitarians, as well.

And so we really thank you.

MR. PETTY: Thank you.

THE PRESIDENT: This is a place that's in honor of their son, Adam. They have made a conscious decision to turn a tragic event into a loving event. And that's what I feel here. And you guys did a good job. Thanks for having me.

END 3:58 P.M. EDT
