NASCAR drivers have been called a lot of things, asked a lot of things. Now comes the untimate question: Are you smarter than a 5th grader?
Five Sprint Cup Series drivers are playing the fast-paced game for charity. On Tuesday, drivers David Ragan and Michael Waltrip play the game, and on Oct. 26, “NASCAR Week” kicks off with Carl Edwards, Kurt Busch and Denny Hamlin among the contestants.
Hosted by comedian Jeff Foxworthy, the all-new half-hour version of Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader? is an atypical game show that measures adults’ lack of knowledge — as revealed by how much they’ve forgotten since grammar school.
Grownups find themselves in a classroom setting, revisiting their youth, as they tackle subjects they were taught years ago ranging from art to geography and math to social studies.
