Charlotte is at the epicenter of the country’s motorsports industry. Close to 75 percent of the NASCAR industry's employees and drivers are based within two hours of downtown Charlotte, and as the area unveils more drag strips, race tracks and the NASCAR Hall of Fame, more industry professionals are expected to relocate to the Charlotte metropolitan area.

Through its host of seminar series, Motorsports Institute and Automotive Systems with a Specialization in Race Car Technology certificate program, CPCC’s Motorsports program puts you in the driver’s seat to a great career in this emerging field.

Let our team of qualified instructors help you join the multitude of CPCC students already employed and working with such Cup teams as Hendrick and Joe Gibbs Racing.
