In Daytona: A photo album

A team of Virginia Tech College of Engineering graduate and undergraduate students helped make history January 29, 2011, at the Daytona International Speedway. As part of the ongoing Blind Driver Challenge, a blind man drove a specially-outfitted 2010 Ford Escape Hybrid SUV on 1.5 miles of the famed auto course. We've posted a photo album marking highlights of this unique occasion.
