WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama says NASCAR’s winning team is kind of like his relationship with Vice President Joe Biden.

Obama says both he and 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champ Kevin Harvick know "when you have a trusted partner shouting world-class advice in your ear at every turn, you can’t lose."

The president threw the praise on Biden, who has said he is considering a run for the 2016 presidential campaign, at a White House event honoring Harvick. Obama says Harvick’s winning streak came after getting a new team last year, but he built "instant chemistry" with crew chief Rodney Childers.

The team’s sleek red No. 4 car was parked just to Obama’s left on the White House South Lawn for the event.
