Navajo race car driver upset over tribe's silence

Navajo race car driver Cory Witherill is upset that the Navajo Nation hasn't responded to his request to educate Navajo youth about diabetes.

Witherill has taken his Team Diabetes project to tribes across the country. He encourages young Natives to maintain an active lifestyle to combat the disease.

Witherill, who was adopted at a young age, submitted a proposal to the Navajo Nation and says he hasn't been given an answer. But tribal officials say Witherill's request for $10,000 is too costly.
