WELLSVILLE, NY - March 2001- The Empire Super Sprints is pleased to endorse the advanced course work in motorsports Alfred State College is now offering to graduates of two-year automotive service programs.

The course work focuses primarily on dirt, oval-track racing with some drag racing and pavement oval track racing-the prevalent types of racing in New York State.

The course work is based upon fabrication, set up, and tuning the engine and car for racing.

Most work is done on live units (vehicles and engines that will actually be raced) as well as on student vehicles and vehicles from the racing community.

Currently, motor sports at Alfred State College exists solely as advanced course work for graduates who have completed a two-year automotive service degree program, either at Alfred State College or at another institution. However, a plan for creating an academic curriculum in motor sports is in the proposal stage and requires approval by the State University of New York (SUNY) and State Education Department before it can be added to the college's cannon of programs.

You may "tour" the Alfred State College campuses (Alfred and Wellsville) by visiting our website at www.alfredstate.edu.

For additional information, or an update of the status of the proposed program, please contact Tom Taber, at (607) 587- 3126 or the Alfred State College Admissions Office at 1-800-4-ALFRED, or (607) 587-4215.
