STEM Expo at Charlotte Motor Speedway Brings Racing and Education Together
Race fans looking to speed up their learning curve before the Bank of America ROVAL™ 400 weekend can do so in style, with the first STEM Expo on Sept. 28 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Attendees can enjoy an educational, in-depth look into how the technologically advanced world of motorsports operates and evolves. The expo features interactive stations displaying attractions including NASCAR inspection laser technology, reaction-testing platforms, Q&A sessions featuring dignitaries including Darrell Waltrip and Max Papis as well as opportunities to build your own race car and test your skills against fellow attendees.
