My daughter loves to race. It doesn’t matter if she’s in the pool, on her bike, or going upstairs to brush her teeth, she wants to be first. It’s the easiest way she’s found to satisfy her unending competitiveness. I’m not proud, but it’s been an effective way to get dinner finished more nights than I’d care to admit.
She’s especially fond of racing cars. She’s constantly yelling at me from the back seat if we get passed on the highway and I’ts become a challenge to avoid tripping over the variety of tracks that are spread throughout the living room. She’s excited about the growing size of her toy car collection, I’m excited that cartoons have now been replaced by NASCAR races every weekend.
NASCAR has recently introduced a new way to encourage this new love of motor sports, the NASCAR Acceleration Nation website and app, available on both Android and I Phone. There is info on races, details about cars and educational videos about the science of speed. Her two favorite features are the ability to read more about her favorite diver, Danica Patrick naturally, and the racing games that I’ll admit to playing quite often myself.
The app is FREE and can be downloaded here
The Acceleration Nation home page for Mac or PC can be found here
There is also this fantastic giveaway, a first prize of $400, second of $150, and third of $75 NASCAR gift cards, open to residents of the US and Canada, eighteen and over. The contest ends on September 8th.
It’s always fun to find new activities that we can share together, things to bond over. I’ve been surprised by how much a mutual love of sports has been a part of that. Kids twelve and under are always free to all NASCAR INFINITY and Camping World Truck races. I think we may have something new to add to our list next summer.
