Back when I was a little boy, I would watch Nickelodeon after I finished my elementary school homework. And when I recall those times, I remember that a lot of their game shows back then – you know, Legends of the Hidden Temple, Double Dare, and the like – had their grand prizes often be a trip to U.S. Space Camp in Huntsville, Alabama.
I was never really enamored with space growing up, so going to Space Camp wasn’t a childhood dream of mine. But I figure it was a childhood dream for many other kids.
And based on the video above, I figure it was indeed such for Verizon IndyCar Series drivers James Hinchcliffe and Josef Newgarden, who both visited the Camp before getting down to business this weekend at Barber Motorsports Park.
You’d figure that the happy-go-lucky duo would have a ball with the visit, and it looks like they did.
But while they had their fun, they also spoke with a group of campers from Dubai and Puerto Rico about the importance of teamwork and excelling in STEM – science, engineering, technology and math – according to AL.com.
Hinchcliffe and Newgarden will both look to put a tough Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach behind them this Sunday at 2:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN and NBC Sports Live Extra in the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama.
