Ever wonder what rockets and race cars have in common?
HOUSTON, Aug. 3 -- NASA operations on Earth and in space have a lot in common
with the rigors of competitive auto racing. Both require reliability and safety
of high-performance equipment under extreme conditions. Add to the fact NASA
currently holds several Guinness Book of World Records titles for speed, and the
connection becomes even clearer. Previously, NASA has provided a great deal of
technology that has not only helped the racing world, but has improved
conditions for all drivers and helped to protect the environment.
For the first time ever, NASA will be participating in the 2007 Generac Power
Weekend, Aug. 10-12 at Elkhart Lake's Road America motorsports complex.
The weekend will feature a spectacular combination of racing and activities,
highlighted by world-class events from American Le Mans Series and Champ Car. In
addition to the high-speed thrills of world-class racing, a wide variety of
entertainment and activities is scheduled for people of all ages to create a
spectacular three days of speed and entertainment.
On display at NASA's inflatable exhibit tent will be an actual shuttle tire,
information on how NASA spinoffs have helped the racing industry, and
information about NASA's future programs to travel to the moon and beyond.
