About the Class

Aerodynamics of NASCAR - Clean Air

Aerodynamics are a critical factor in NASCAR. The impact of air—its flow, speed and racing advantages—are analyzed in each race. Students will explore air as a force, understand how it works and conduct experiments related to its downforce and drag properties. Students will utilize models, a wind tunnel and anemometers during the class.
