Keith Haney Racing Helps Educate STEM Elementary School Students

Keith Haney Racing owner/driver Keith Haney helped plant the seeds of drag racing as a career during a recent visit to an elementary school.

Haney took his Pro Nitrous Chevrolet to Rhoades Elementary School in Broken Arrow last week and interacted with more than 400 students who are studying a science, technology, engineering, and math curriculum at the school.

“We thought it would be a great opportunity to allow them to see how these subjects are applied in the racing world,” Haney said. “The kids listened to a brief description about the car and how it works, and then I talked to them about the safety aspects of the sport.”

The students were attentive and asked numerous, pertinent questions.

“They asked some great questions about our race team, the car, and the sport of drag racing,” Haney said. “It was quite an honor to interact with these young minds and listen to their thoughts and questions while watching the amazement on their faces.”

School counselor Debra Wheeler helped organize the event with her brothers, Randy and Dale Hancock, who are crewmembers on the team.

“What an enjoyable experience,” Haney said. “Thanks to the school and for everyone involved for bringing us out. I hope we helped inspire some of the kids to continue to pursue STEM education as well as create an interest in drag racing.”
