President Barack Obama got a surprise visit from a "Bush" Wednesday but not the one you might expect.

Las Vegas native and race car driver Kyle Busch was honored at the White House for winning NASCAR's Sprint Cup Championship.

During the championship, the president joked about the familiarity of the racer's last name. He said some people expected to see a Bush in the White House in 2016, but "they didn't know it was going to be Kyle."
