Several Nascar Drivers ‘Too Busy’ To Meet President Obama


President Barack Obama will honor NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson and the 11 other Chase drivers from last year in a White House ceremony this week – but nearly half of the 2010 playoff contenders won’t be there.  Who is declining and why?

NASCAR says that five drivers – Greg Biffle, Kurt Busch, Carl Edwards, Kevin Harvick and Tony Stewart – will not be attending the White House visit due to “schedule conflicts.”

They must be very busy people. Regardless of one’s political views, the president is still the president – and an opportunity to speak with the leader of the free world is a rare and special one. Johnson, Denny Hamlin, Jeff Gordon, Kyle Busch, Clint Bowyer, Jeff Burton and Matt Kenseth will attend.

Would you ever turn down an invitation from any President?

Who in your life would you never turn down to spend time with and why?
