Since the schools are closed this week, I've been taking the time to research our next exhibit; "Moonshine to Millionaires":the NASCAR story. After reading through all of the exhibit text, I have discovered my own intrigue and excitement regarding NASCAR. The American history alone is enough to engage your love of cars and racing, but my research took quite the turn as I stumbled across this video documentary about the driver of the #3 car, Dale Earnhardt.
Watch this video and get prepared to be moved:
I have to admit that I have not been a NASCAR follower until recently, however, I can't tell you how excited I am to be a part of this exhibit and it's potential to be our BIGGEST, most EXCITING exhibit ever!
NASCAR is completely relevant and alive in today's culture. Young and old can turn on the television or radio and listen to a race on any given weekend. These drivers are racing in real time, inside machines that are testing the boundries of science on a daily basis.
