NASCAR Hosts Youth From the Middle East

WASHINGTON (AP) - The U.S. auto racing organization NASCAR is hosting young people from Bahrain and Qatar as part of a diplomatic program of the U.S. State Department.

The State Department said Friday that 11 young adults involved in auto racing would travel to Charlotte, N.C., and Miami Nov. 15-23. They are scheduled to visit the NASCAR Hall of Fame and to attend races.

The trip is sponsored by SportsUnited, a State Department exchange program that brings foreign athletes to the United States.
