NASCAR STAR KYLE BUSCH HELPS CROWN TEXAS MOTOR SPEEDWAY’S ‘SPEEDING TO READ’ CHAMPIONS
FORT WORTH, TEXAS (April 4, 2014) – NASCAR Sprint Cup Series star Kyle Busch is accustomed to coming out of Turn 4 at Texas Motor Speedway with the crowd roaring on the frontstretch, but on Friday it was a completely different electric atmosphere.
Busch came out of Turn 4 in a helicopter for his grand entrance in front of more than 4,500 screaming elementary school students and joined the 11 local-area schools to crown the champions of Texas Motor’s Speedway’s “Speeding To Read” educational program.
The 11 schools, representing three districts, eight communities and more than 6,500 students overall, combined to read 1,020,207 books in the competition known as the “Lone Star 500” since the outset of the school year. The Frontstretch Division consisting of Argyle/Lantana’s E.P. Rayzor, Trophy Club’s Samuel Beck and Keller’s Kay Granger elementary schools led the way by combining to read 445,746 books of the overall total.
