WASHINGTON | The Washington Nationals say the team's racing president mascots will spend Presidents Day at Mount Rushmore.

The team says George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt will visit the South Dakota landmark that features their faces. They'll be joined by William Howard Taft, the newest mascot and the only one without his face on Mount Rushmore.

The Nationals say that Roosevelt and Taft will "race" from Washington to Mount Rushmore starting on Friday. The team is calling the contest "Bill and Teddy's Executive Adventure." Fans can vote on Twitter for the president they want to win by using the hashtags #VoteBill and #VoteTeddy.
