Kids Q & A at Iowa Speedway
Iowa Speedway held a Kids Q & A Session preceding the Iowa Corn 300 for the Verizon IndyCar Series. It was held at the Crash Course located under the Main Grandstand. IndyCar driver Ed Carpenter was the celebrity guest and kids were given the opportunity to ask questions, just like the professional media.
Here are some of the interesting Kids Questions that were asked-with a summary of the answer.
Q: How does it feel to go Airborn?
A: It is very Quiet.
Q: Did you watch racing when you were little?
A: Yes, I was always a big IndyCar fan growing up.
Q: How long does it take for you to get into the car?
A: We have a maximum of 6 minutes when it is announced for drivers to do so but, it usually only takes me about 3-4 minutes.
Q: How does it feel when you need to go to the Bathroom?
A: I was waiting for that one! It's just like when you go on a long road trip with your parents, you have to go to the bathroom before the race and if you don't you just have to hold it. But we sweat out a lot in the car so it usually isn't a problem
Just like working media, the kids were not allowed to take photos with the driver or get autographs but the parents were allowed to take a group photo at the end.
