President Obama is thanking champion driver Tony Stewart and the rest of NASCAR for their efforts in giving back to the community and armed forces.  The President welcomed the reigning NASCAR champion and other top drivers from the 2011 Chase for the Sprint Cup to the White House on Tuesday.  Stewart finished last season's ten-race playoff tied with Carl Edwards in points, but earned the title with the most race wins.  It was his third career NASCAR championship.
