President Bush Meets with 2007 NASCAR Nextel Cup Champion
Oval Office

  Presidential Remarks

1:09 P.M. EST

THE PRESIDENT: You know, one of the things I love about NASCAR is not only are these great athletes, but they're socially minded folks. Chandra and Jimmie and I met several times -- one time at a place where the folks of NASCAR are putting something back into the community to help the less fortunate. In this case it happened to be in a place called Victory Junction, in North Carolina, and it was a fabulous experience. And I want to thank you all very much for taking your fame and lending it to help somebody in need. It's really what makes America a great place. You're leaders on the track and leaders off the track.

END 1:10 P.M. EST
