Honda-Purdue University

Two Indy 500 winners highlighted the Honda STEAM Connections Tour held in concert with Purdue University at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The 2014 Indianapolis 500 winner Ryan Hunter-Reay and 2016 winner Alex Rossi were among the speakers to more than 1,200 Indiana middle school and high school students. 

Others sharing with the students were Honda Racing engineer Tom Reichenbach and Purdue President and former Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels. The goal of the tour is to promote the science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM) that play a critical role in motorsports and automotive development.
