Earlier this month, NASCAR launched its first racing-themed event on My future, the Boys & Girls Clubs of America digital engagement platform for club youth. Before starting the activity, members are encouraged to learn about the different elements of a running track design through an informational video hosted by Mamba Smith. These include the different types of runways, surfaces and degrees of incline.
The kids at the Boys & Girls Club are then tasked with sketching their own runway designs and can use digital design tools such as TinkerCad Where Automatic drawing. Once completed, members can upload their designs to MyFuture and share them with others on the platform. See below for a sample of the initial submissions.
NASCAR plans to launch its first full badge of digital experiences and activities on MyFuture ahead of the 2022 racing season. Click on the video to watch the “Design a Race Track” video shot at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Boys & Girls Clubs of America was announced as an Official Partner of the NASCAR Youth Community last April, and last week the nonprofit received the institution’s award at the NASCAR Drive for Diversity Awards 2021 in Charlotte.
