NASCAR Technical Institute Students Power Up K&N Pro Series

NASCAR Technical Institute (NTI) is powering, most literally, the 2012 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East, placing NASCAR spec engines built and maintained by NTI students into Revolution Racing (Rev Racing), Hattori Racing Enterprises (HRE) and X-Team Racing cars. The alliance includes an NTI sponsorship of one of Rev Racing’s cars for the entire 2012 K&N season. NTI also sponsored an HRE car at the first race of the season this past weekend at Bristol Motor Speedway.   

In total, three teams and eight cars in each K&N race will house an NTI-built and maintained engine, giving NTI students the opportunity to see their hard work and dedication play out right before their eyes on the race track.

"Our relationships with Rev Racing, HRE and X-Team showcase the talent of our students," said John Dodson, community and NASCAR team relations director. "After a successful 2011 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East season, where our engines went to victory lane in seven out of 12 races, we’re looking forward to seeing how the engines perform this year."

Only the most highly qualified NTI students are tapped to work on the engines, and must maintain a 3.8 GPA to be considered. The ability to maintain an active race team’s engine is highly sought after by NTI’s ambitious student base, given the doors it can open to potential employment after graduation.
