Students that complete the motorsports technology curriculum will have experience with almost every aspect of motor racing that a technician needs, and will be ready for a successful career in any form of racing.

Our graduates are involved in many forms of motor racing including but not limited to: circle track, road racing, drag racing, and rally racing.


Motorsports Technology has a Tool/Supplies Lending program

The beginning of the semester can bring with it a lot of expenses. There is a program that may be able to help.

The Tools/Supplies lending program is an initiative to ensure the academic success of our students. The purpose of the loan program is to temporarily lend items.

Funded through a Title III Department of Education Strengthening Institutions Grant, this program provides tools/supplies for students who are not able to afford to immediately purchase them. If a non-disposable item, these need to be returned at the end of the semester.

Students interested in utilizing the program must complete an application. The program is open to eligible students who are in need, although priority is given to first-year students.

Tools/supplies are lent on a first-come, first-served basis for the entire semester to eligible students. There is no cost for the student to participate in this program.

Approved students are given a contract detailing the tools/supplies they have been loaned and when these are due to be returned.

This program has the following items that can be borrowed:

  • Basic Automotive Repair Tool box and Tool set
  • Laptop

Complete a tool application.
