Read to Race Program News
Ivy Bound Academy’s Read to Race program winners event was held Friday, Nov. 13, 2009. Michael Sweet opened up the seminar with a talk about the opportunities in the motorsports industry, discussing programs and opportunities that include everyone. Julien Penaruiz, a race car driver from Paris, France, who has competed in European open wheel series, rallys, as well as NASCAR and Arca events, talked about his career. The kids loved him! After lunch, we did a Q&A session, then autographs for all. Ms Erica Hill was fabulous, and had everything organized like a swiss watch, or should I say like a Jimmie Johnson championship run!!
