Summer camp encourages kids to pursue NASCAR
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Area summer camp introduces kids to possible careers in NASCAR.
Winston-Salem State University’s “Diversity in Motion Initiative” rolled into Sedge Garden Recreation Center. With race cars and driving simulators, motorsports instructor Zena Conway says the program’s goal is to encourage kids, especially minorities and women, to pursue NASCAR careers.
“We want to enlighten people, that may not know, that there are jobs and educational outlets they can participate in when it comes to motorsports”
Ade Herbert of Rev Racing says the race team takes young drivers and prepares them for higher levels of NASCAR racing.
“Being much more expensive than your usual stick and ball sports, it takes these types of opportunities to get some people who have the talent, but they don’t have the money to get into the sport”
Winston-Salem State University and Rev Racing believes their outreach program will help bring new fans to NASCAR.
