Read Win Race

Dale Sekora, of the Billings Drag Racing Association, talks to Elysian School students about auto racing Friday as the club kicks off a reading program called Read Win Race where students compete for prizes. The program will end with participating school principals racing cars at the Yellowstone Drag Strip on May 25. "Just about every kid likes race cars. The excitement of being around a race car can get kids motivated to read more, and the more they read, the more they get to be around cool cars," Sekora said. The program is patterned after a similar program in Colorado that involves more than 60 schools and during 20 years has encouraged more than 560,000 students to read more.
