AASP-MN Announces 19th Annual Race for Automotive Education

Share This:

 

The 19th Annual Race for Automotive Education is planned for Sept. 28-30 at ProKart Indoor Racing in Burnsville, MN.

The event---postponed from January due to COVID---serves as AASP-MN's primary fundraiser for its Automotive Education Fund, which provides financial resources to support automotive students, enhance automotive programs and raise awareness of career opportunities in the automotive service industry.

 

Since its inception, the fund has disbursed nearly $280,000 directly to students enrolled in automotive programs through the association’s scholarship program and SkillsUSA competition.

AASP-MN members and other industry supporters will organize teams to compete in kart racing at speeds of up to 40 mph. When the final checkered flag waves, the Race for Automotive Education is expected to raise up to $15,000, earmarked to fund scholarships for students enrolled in ASE Education Foundation-certified automotive program (collision repair or auto service) in the state of Minnesota.

 

Scholarship awards of $21,000 were announced in April.
