On Tuesday, Joey Logano and Team Penske traveled to Washington, DC. The 2018 NASCAR champions were invited to visit President Donald Trump at the White House.
It’s an annual trip made by the most recent NASCAR champions.
“A friend of mine for a long time. I won’t say how long because it will tell about our age and we don’t want to discuss that. But, we’ve been friends for a long time. I know a lot about Roger. Too much, I know too much about Roger,” Trump said of NASCAR team owner Roger Penske.
Joey Logano stood alongside Donald Trump and Roger Penske as the President welcomed the team. Joey Logano’s wife, Brittany Baca sat in the crowd. She was invited to the podium by Donald Trump to stand alongside her husband.
Donald Trump comments on NASCAR
“NASCAR is not only a thrilling display of skill and power but a celebration of the American spirit,” President Donald Trump continued from the White House podium.
“No matter who wins the race, you never forget what matters most: God, family and country. And nobody embodies that more than you folks.”
“With Champions like you, I am confident that NASCAR will continue to excite and inspire millions. I’m a fan. And I have friends that know every driver, every car, every number.”
Roger Penske at the White House
“The chance to visit the White House is something you dream about and we can tell our grand kids forever,” Roger Penske stated at the podium.
“But, me personally and the team want to thank you for the support of our men and women in the military. And the first responders who keep this country safe and secure.”
“We have 500 members Mr. President back in Moorseville. And 60,000 Penske Corporation employees that thank you. To have us here today as part of this celebration.”
“I want to thank the France family and the team at NASCAR. To give us these stadiums around the country, so we can compete.”
Joey Logano speaks from the White House
“It’s such an honor to be speaking here. I kinda gotta pinch myself to think about what I’m doing here right now,” Logano said as he was introduced to the podium.
“Like Roger and Mr. President said, it takes an amazing team to make that happen. Today, we had quite the experience to see your team. The team that makes our amazing country be what it is.”
“This is a great reminder and I’m sure I’m speaking for my whole team, of what goes into our great country, our freedom and everyone that’s fought for that.”
“I need to thank the military and our leaders, who give us the opportunity to go out there and do what we love everyday. Whether it’s driving race cars, watching it or whatever you’re into. We get to do that because we live in an amazing country.”
“I still can’t get over my car sitting here in front of the White House.”
