USAR begins partnership with Greenville Technical College: students to participate during race weekends with national touring seeries.

MYRTLE BEACH, SC - United Speed Alliance Racing announced this week a new partnership agreement has been reached with Greenville Technical College and its new William F. McKinney Regional Automotive Technology Center. The partnership will assist students in their curriculum for the new motorsports technology program offered at the college in Greenville, SC.

Students will attend selected USAR Hooters ProCup Series events this summer to give students an opportunity to have a "hands-on" experience in the motorsports industry. The students will get their first taste of working with a stock car touring series this weekend at Myrtle Beach Speedway. Several students will be attending this weekend at the Bryant Heating & Cooling 250 presented by Black's Tire Service.

"We are very honored to be involved in this unique educational partnership with Greenville Technical College," said USAR Director of Operations Tony Cox. "Ken Williams has been very helpful in organizing this partnership and we look forward to having the students take part in our organization this summer."

The students will attend USAR events at Myrtle Beach Speedway, Hickory Motor Speedway, Southern National Speedway and Big Daddy's South Boston Speedway. Each student will be partnered with a specific duty during the weekend, either with a race team, USAR official, administrator or track official to learn more about the operations, technical inspection and administration of a USAR race weekend.

"This partnership is a welcome addition to the program here at Greenville Technical College," said Motorsports Industry Liason Ken Williams. "This unique partnership will give our students an excellent opportunity to learn more about the operations of a motorsports program that incorporates many different levels of participation."

The first two program offerings are MST 101 Introduction to Motorsports Technology and MST 102 Motorsports Operations. Students enrolled in these courses will be introduced to the fundamentals of motorsports technology.
