“Only recently in the history of stock car racing have colleges offered any classes to educate students about our industry. This education occurs faster and is more complete than just through on-the-job training alone. When students come out of CPCC with training and begin to look for jobs in motorsports, everyone wins. The hard working student has developed a broad range of skills, taught by experienced professionals, by which to market themselves. The team wins by hiring a person who has shown they can compete, learn and succeed in racing, and the sport wins by having more qualified applicants entering the work force.”
