Comcast puts the pedal to the metal for Wilsonville event


Comcast World of Speed 1   "Speed Is Our Gig."
   This was Comcast's motto this week as they welcomed key leaders to the World of Speed auto museum in Wilsonville.
   The event promoted Comcast's one gig internet speed for residential customers.
   It featured NASCAR Xfinity Series driver Blake Koch; an Xfinity-branded car from the race series; the Ice Charger, which is driven by Vin Diesel in the "Fast and Furious 8" movie; along with some Comcast branded vehicles; and all the impressive vehicles displayed in the museum.
   Comcast's Regional Senior Vice-President Rodrigo Lopez interviewed Koch, who also took audience questions.
   Guests had the opportunity to challenge the NASCAR professional on racing simulators and on a radio-controlled car racing track.  
   The World of Speed's summer camp program also got a boost in the form of a $10,000 donation from Comcast for tools and scholarships.
