Brescia University is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year and will host several events for alumni, friends, and students as part of Homecoming 2010. As part of the festivities, Brescia is bringing back the chariot races. It has been over 20 years since the last chariot race took place on campus. The chariot races are open to the campus community and the greater Owensboro community. To race, there must be a team of three members and the chariot must have at least two wheels.
