The Indianapolis Recruiting Battalion hosted the National Hot Rod Association Mellow Yellow Nationals at Lucas Oil Raceway August 31. Staff Sgt. Chad Negrete, Indianapolis Recruiter, met Tony Schumacher, American drag racer, and spoke to him about the NHRA Youth and Education Services Program. The weekend included a future Soldier Swear-In and was also highlighted by the Army Golden Knights jumping.
The NHRA YES program, presented by the U.S. Army, allows participants the opportunity to learn about and explore various career opportunities while gaining a new perspective on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) by taking what they acquire in the classroom and applying it to real-world experiences.
