Award Winning FacultyJanuary 10, 2014
All faculty members in Patrick Henry Community College’s Motorsports Technology program have real-world racing experience that spans professional go-kart racing to the Sprint Cup Series. Instructors have built engines for Alan Kulwicki, Michael Waltrip Racing, Richard Childress at RCR Racing, Cale Yarborough and Osterlund Racing. Students are guaranteed a world-class education from instructors who have worked the track and know what it takes to make it in the racing business.
The Racing College offers courses in motorsports to high school junior and senior students as part of Patrick Henry Community College’s dual enrollment program. Juniors and seniors across PHCC’s service region, which includes Martinsville City, Henry, Franklin and Patrick counties in Virginia, can take courses in basic chassis construction and engine building that count toward a degree or certificate program at PHCC.
Participating schools include Bassett High School, Magna Vista High School, Martinsville High School, Patrick County High School, Franklin County High School, Piedmont Governor’s School for Math, Science and Technology, and Carlisle School. Students must meet all admission and course requirements at PHCC.
Courses are offered at no cost to parents and students through partnerships with PHCC and participating school districts.
