Earlier this month, NASCAR launched its first racing-themed activity on MyFuture, Boys & Girls Clubs of America‘s digital engagement platform for club youth. Before beginning the activity, members are invited to learn about the different elements of race track design through an informational video hosted by Mamba Smith (see below). These include the various track types, surfaces and degrees of banking.
Boys & Girls Club kids are then tasked with sketching out their own track designs and can use digital design tools such as TinkerCad or AutoDraw. Once complete, members can upload their designs to MyFuture and share with others on the platform.
See below a sampling of initial submissions.
NASCAR is planning to launch its first full badge of digital experiences and activities on MyFuture leading into the 2022 race season.
Boys & Girls Clubs of America was announced as the Official Youth Community Partner of NASCAR this past April, and last week the non-profit was presented with the Institution Award at the 2021 NASCAR Drive for Diversity Awards in Charlotte.
