Maude Saunders students are used to seeing buses and cars outside their school, but they were pleasantly surprised when a real racecar from the Daytona International Speedway pulled up! Just Read, Florida partnered with the Daytona International Speedway, Scholastic, and other sponsors to encourage students across the state to read by touring the state with a car that will be used in the Daytona 500. Maude Saunders is one of only 40 schools the car will stop at. The students were allowed to look inside the car and engine, and a few lucky children even got to crank it and rev it up! They heard a presentation by a Daytona Speedway representative and were allowed to ask questions about the car and race. It was an exciting day and a great motivation to get “revved up” to read!
