As part of NASCAR Race to Green, a month-long initiative to reduce the sport's carbon footprint, NASCAR Nationwide Series rookie Dylan Kwasniewski particpated in a tree planting ceremony at Darlington Raceway.
The ceremonial tree planting was meant to generate awareness about being environmentally responsible.
The honorary recipents of the trees were Darlington County students. The students later participated in builiding wood duck nesting boxes, a project put on by Team Chevy. The boxes were constructed out of scrap Chevrolet Volt battery covers.
Along with tree planting, Kwasniewski saw on-track action on Thursday. During the Nationwide Series' opening practice at Darlington Raceway, he managed to rub his No. 31 race car into the infamous Darlington wall.
Kwasniewski will take the track again Friday for the Nationwide Series Coors Light Pole Qualifying session at 4:05 p.m. ET, FOX Sports 2.
