The US veteran racer did manage to get his number 48 car to the White House to be honored by Obama.
“In exchange for free parking,” the president said to Johnson, “he should let me take the 48 out for a few laps.”
But before Johnson could help the commander-in-chief into his helmet, Mr. Obama said the Secret Service didn’t think it was a good idea.
It was not the “Cash-for-Clunkers” program that brought #48 to the White House. Mr. Obama was hosting an event to salute Jimmie Johnson and his team as winners of the 2008 Sprint Cup, Johnson’s 3rd consecutive win.
