EVANSVILLE, IN – March 25, 2021 – MotoRad has continued its support of Technician.Academy’s Respect is Learned© In The Pits contest for the fourth consecutive year. This annual contest is a unique opportunity for automotive students to work in the pits alongside 3x NHRA Top Alcohol Dragster World Championship team, Randy Meyer Racing.

“Technician.Academy is grateful to have MotoRad in the pits with us once again in 2021,” said Shawn Collins, Founder of Technician.Academy. “MotoRad shares our passion for liberating the future of the automotive industry and providing students with unique educational opportunities that will enable them to succeed in an ever-changing field.”

Sponsoring this program in 2021 was a no-brainer for MotoRad. MotoRad’s team of experts understands the value of bringing unique education opportunities like this to the automotive industry where training is lacking and quality technicians are retiring.

“MotoRad is proud to continue our partnership with Technician.Academy and Randy Meyer Racing as sponsor of the 2021 Respect is Learned© In The Pits initiative,” said Brandon Kight, VP of Marketing at MotoRad. “This will be our fourth year to sponsor this great program. It has been so rewarding to see these young technicians enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be part of a world-class drag team pit crew. This is an experience that they will take with them into their future careers and cherish for a lifetime.”

MotoRad has supported the Respect is Learned© In The Pits contest since 2018. Since then, five automotive college students have experienced a once-in-a-lifetime ride behind-the-scenes at the largest drag racing event in the world. In 2021, two more talented students will have the opportunity to work on Randy Meyer Racing’s Top Alcohol Dragsters, where the team hopes to once again clinch the championship win.
