UNT announced a higher education partnership with Texas Motor Speedway Wednesday afternoon and hosted a panel in the Library Mall titled “Science of Speed” to celebrate, according to a press release from the university.

The purpose of the partnership is to help provide educational opportunities to students in a variety of different fields.

The panel consisted of NASCAR driver Austin Dillon, luge Olympic medalist and CEO of USA Luge Gordy Sheer, materials engineer for the Dow Chemical Company Sam Crabtree and UNT President Neal Smatresk.

The conversation consisted of topics such pre-race routine and the science and the similarities between racing and luge. Afterwards, the panel answered questions from students. The event ended with Dillon unveiling his car’s Winter Olympics paint scheme that he will race with this Sunday in the AAA Texas 500.
