NASCAR Dreams Come True in Atlanta

Thanks to the generous donors and supporters, members of the Boys & Girls Club of Metro Atlanta were given a once-in-a-lifetime experience at Atlanta Motor Speedway as they embarked on our latest NASCAR Dreams activation earlier this month.

Participants had the opportunity to meet Richard Petty Motorsports VP of Competition, Sammy Johns, and former Crew Chief and NASCAR Hall of Famer, Dale Inman. They also learned a great deal from Manager of Safety Inspections, Jamie Rigot and Clint Bowyer's team engineer, Tim O'Brien.

The entire day was focused on STEM education and how engineering relates to the sport of NASCAR. The group ended their visit with what was for many, their first NASCAR race.

The NASCAR Foundation would like to say thank you to everyone who made the Atlanta NASCAR Dreams weekend a success! For more on our exciting day, take a look at their Facebook album.
