Las Vegas Motor Speedway will host a day of learning for the Girls Scouts of Frontier Council on Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon. More than 100 local Girl Scouts will visit the superspeedway to learn more about the different aspects of the racing industry.

Participants in the event include local female drivers from the Bullring and The Strip at LVMS, Richard Petty Driving Experience and 702 Graphics, offering the girls an opportunity to learn about the many aspects of the racing industry.

"We wanted the girls to be exposed to careers in the automotive and racing field. The world of racing is in our own backyard here in Las Vegas and has many women who participate through all aspects of the sport we knew LVMS would be a perfect fit," said Heather Murray, Program Specialist at the Girls Scouts of Frontier Council. "This event will educate the girls of the Frontier Council on ways their talents and skills can be used in the racing career field, as well as give them an up close and personal look at the speedway."
