Indy and Ethanol on the College Circuit

The IndyCar Series and ethanol are being featured as part of Popular Science’s “What’s New” College Tour visiting college campuses around the nation this month and next.

According to an article on Auto Racing Daily, the Indianapolis 500 and IndyCar Series branding are featured in the high-tech mobile dorm room, which is outfitted out with sophisticated surround sound systems, wireless gaming, computers and flat-panel TVs.

Popular Science Indy CarStudents can also learn about the series’ partnership with the ethanol industry through interactive displays and experience what it’s like to drive an IndyCar Series car by testing out an IndyCar Series simulator.

The photo was taken at the University of Massachusettes last weekend and is featured on the National College Tour FlickR photo album. The tour has already visited Georgia Tech, NC State, Duke, and George Washington. Upcoming stops include Purdue, Kansas State, San Diego State, and the Universities of Utah and New Mexico.

More information about the tour, including the rest of the schedule, can be found on the PopSci National College Tour website.
