NASCAR program offers at-home STEM learning for kids

Earlier this year, as Denny Hamlin piloted his No. 11 FedEx Toyota Camry to his third career Daytona 500 victory, fundamental concepts of aerodynamics were at play as his car surpassed 200 miles per hour – speeds routinely achieved by NASCAR Cup Series drivers at Daytona International Speedway.

For 500 miles on race day, the “Three Ds of Speed” – drafting, downforce and drag – each had a role in Hamlin’s historic drive to Victory Lane at the World Center of Racing.
