EVANSVILLE, IN – February 22, 2018 – Technician.Academy is delighted to announce its continued partnership with MotoRad, who will be one of the sponsors for the second Respect is Learned© In The Pits contest.

“Like us, MotoRad is committed to educating the technicians of tomorrow and providing learning experiences like the Respect is Learned© In The Pits contest that will shape the future of the automotive industry,” said Shawn Collins, CEO of Technician.Academy. The Respect is Learned© In The Pits contest invites current college students to apply to win a weekend with Randy Meyer Racing and Megan Meyer Racing at the 2018 Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals in Indianapolis, IN. The chosen student will work in the pits with the RMR drag team, gaining first-hand experience with the crew.

“The In The Pits contest was a huge success in 2017, and we are more than excited to continue the program in 2018,” Megan Meyer said. “We encourage every student that has an interest in motorsports to take this opportunity to get hands-on experience outside of the classroom. With the help of MotoRad, we will have a larger reach to students, and hope to help bring light to the importance of education and building connections in the industry.”

“MotoRad is proud to partner with two winning teams like Technician.Academy and Randy Meyer Racing,” said Brandon Kight, VP of Marketing at MotoRad. “It’s a perfect opportunity for technicians of tomorrow.”
