2012 champion Keselowski returns to the White House

Team owner Roger Penske will join his driver as they both will head to Washington DC after the Texas 500 to meet with President Obama

Brad Keselowski will make a trip to Washington DC following his NASCAR Sprint Cup Series duties this weekend at Texas Motor Speedway to visit President Barack Obama at the White House.

In order to continue an every year tradition, the 2012 Sprint Cup Series Champion will be honored by the President of the United States next Tuesday, April 16th.

However, this year’s annual NASCAR celebration will be different from the past editions, as the other members from last season Chase will not be part of the visit. NASCAR spokesman David Higdon said that the White House opted to do like other sports and changed format, honoring the entire champion team rather than bring the Chase drivers.

Keselowski will be joined by Roger Penske, owner of the champion team, along with the team members and NASCAR officials.

The 2012 Sprint Cup Series champion will also meet with wounded troops during his visit to the White House as his foundation focuses on events for wounded veterans.

In his last year visit as member of the Chase, Keselowski posted on his Twitter account some photos from the interior of the White House. Will he publish one with President Obama this time?
