Xi Jinping.  It could be written into the race rules that he wins every race.

Jimmy Carter will just have to take  a few days off from building homes for the poor so he can go down there and kick everyone's asses.

LBJ, because he'll realize the gimmick has stopped working but will increase the commitment to it.

Ike because its seem like he's never getting his long planned memorial.

Jackson because he's getting kicked off the $20 bill.

John Adams because of tie ins to Sam Adams beer sponsorships.

That would certainly be interesting.

How about bringing in some non-president founders: Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton could make for some interesting races.

Good one.  Sounds spot on after I watched "Vietnam".  Another good one would be Nixon, because they'd have to invent some new tricky/sleazy ways for him to win.

This past season they actually cut back the number of presidents. It seems the concept has by now gotten just a bit played out.

[remember the beginning, back in the RFK days when it was just the original four presidents in little racing cars on a video screen?]

It would be good for differently-abled people. Especially if his chair was powered.

But that would cost too much, so not happening.

They’d have to be so careful about in race gags that it wouldn’t be worth it
