NTT INDYCAR SERIES driver David Malukas served as an ambassador for the series at the White House on Monday. First Lady Dr. Jill Biden’s annual Easter Egg Roll, an Easter tradition that dates back to 1878, took place at the South Lawn. Over 40,000 children attended, and as part of the celebration, the NTT INDYCAR SERIES had kid-friendly activities that gave them the opportunity to learn about the sport.

David Malukas commented saying:

“It’s a very special and unique experience to visit the White House and take part in this tradition today. “Interacting with the kids and taking in their excitement as they see their first race car and learn more about INDYCAR is really fun and memorable.”

A coloring sheet depicting INDYCAR safety features also was provided to each child. From the physical fitness required of drivers to the safety and technology present in each car, a true INDYCAR “EGGucation” was provided to all.

Activities included many of the machinery and programs drivers use to achieve and maintain the physical fitness necessary to drive in the world’s most competitive racing series. The race fit program included a light reaction test, a strength challenge using a rubber bar simulating the strength needed to control an INDYCAR steering wheel and a ball toss while wearing strobe light glasses.

The next race on the NTT INDYCAR SERIES schedule is Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach which takes place on April 21.
