As part of ongoing green efforts surrounding the STP 400 on April 21, Kansas Speedway is recognizing students from the Kansas City, Kansas School District who took part in the “Green Energy Challenge” April 8 – 12, 2013. All students are fifth-graders in the district and were selected to take part in the STP 400 pre-race activities by their teachers.

Each student will be paired with a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver as the driver participates in the VIP reception line during driver introductions.

“It’s great to be able to recognize some of the students who participated in the Green Energy Challenge,” said Kansas Speedway President Patrick Warren. “This is a great program to help students learn about green efforts through sustainability education opportunities at both school and home. This will also be the first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race for many of these students and I look forward to introducing them to this incredible sport.”

The Green Energy Challenge was a fun opportunity for students to learn about energy through various lessons that included learning about renewable and nonrenewable energy, including solar, wind, biofuel and electricity.
