It’s About Speed. It’s About Science. It’s About 3 World-Class
Winning Athletes Coming to Midland

Science of Speed: Join Us on Victory Lane

Austin Dillon of Richard Childress Racing (RCR), this year’s Daytona 500 winner, and Chris Mazdzer and Erin Hamlin, Team USA Olympic Luge Medalists (in the 2018 and 2014 Winter Games, respectively), are coming to Midland with some of their team members to celebrate their successes with their Dow partners. And everyone in the community is invited to come out and join the festivities.

“Dow’s ongoing partnerships with both Richard Childress Racing and the U.S.A. Luge Team has enabled us to develop and test technologies that improve both high-speed performance and safety – technologies that will have value for other applications as well. This is an exciting opportunity to celebrate the results of our combined efforts and to further strengthen our ongoing partnerships.”
