A student's life is multifaceted ... and many make time to follow a passion beyond their academics. For Harrison Rhodes, that passion is racing on the NASCAR circuit.

This weekend, the sophomore business student is driving for the first time at Daytona International Speedway in Saturday’s Drive 4 COPD 300, the season-opening race in the NASCAR Nationwide Series, the circuit just below the major League Sprint Cup Series.The race is the annual warm-up to Sunday’s Daytona 500, the biggest race of the stock car season, where part-time college student Austin Dillon will start in the No. 3 car owned by his grandfather, Richard Childress. Rhodes will be the only full-time student at the race.
