WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama will honor NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Brad Keselowski at the White House next week.

The White House says the president will recognize not only Keselowski's sporting accomplishments, but also his efforts to give back to the community. The driver will also meet with wounded troops during his visit.

The White House event will take place April 16.
