NASCAR Meets NASA

NASCAR Meets NASA to Help Educate Children
The NASCAR Foundation (through NASCAR Dreams), Littleton School District and Phoenix International Raceway (PIR) have come together to engage young fans and families through events and at-track activation during race week at PIR in Phoenix , Arizona.

On, Wednesday, February 27, Gears and Galaxies at the Challenger Space Center will engage 300 children and families from Littleton Schools in hands-on science activities, demonstations and a Q&A with a NASCAR driver and NASA astronaut. 

More than 1,000 students from the schools will then have the opportunity to attend the NASCAR Toyota Mexico Series Race through the district's Incentive for Excellence Program, including meet and greets with the drivers and learning curriculum about the sport. Finally, a select group of students will earn a VIP Experience at PIR on NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race day through their outstanding work in the Excellence Program.

Stay tuned on NASCAR's Facebook and Twitter pages as they highlight the students' NASCAR Dreams come true! Want to help fund programs such as these? Click HERE!
