There will be NASCAR drivers, athletes from national tiers, fun mascots, street teams, and Olympians. Some athletes you can meet include Amobi Okoye, Christian Harris, Garrett Wallow, Derek Stingley, NASCAR Driver Ted Minor and Katy’s own racecar driver, Ty Hymel.

“The opportunity to represent an entire sport to the not only Katy but the whole city of Houston is truly amazing, and a dream come true,” says Katy’s own Ty Hymel. “I’ve been so thankful and so blessed to be invited to this event four times now and every time I still can’t believe that I’m in the presence of such amazing athletes.” Hymel is set for his next race this Saturday after the event.

H Town Sports Day will kick off with the Play 60 at noon, an event where kids can work out with professional athletes, learn healthy habits and be able to ask questions. Sign up for the Play 60 starts at 11:00 a.m.
