Scholarship Program at Career Center High School

The team of Tim Lyons, Lee Hill and I had another great day at the Career High School in Winston-Salem.

We arrived early to get the display car unloaded and moved to the front of the building.  High visibility location for sure.

There were around 1,200 students that filed through a trove of businesses, universities, tech schools, etc.

We were fortunate to have a great spot and able to see a lot of students.  The school has a large automotive and collision repair program.  Lots of literature, scholarship info and magazines were passed out to students.

The little car offered something different, and the auto students were full of questions and left all smiles.

Thanks again to Tim and Lee

NCRSCCA Scholarship Program at Topsail High School

The Southeast NCRSCCA Scholarship Program team converged on Topsail High School to tell the students about the scholarship program, importance of staying in school, getting advanced education and of course, SPORTS CARS and all things racing.

Two presentations were conducted, 60 or so students in the first group and around 30 in the second.  Doug got his feet wet doing the second presentation, breezing right through it.  Doug is heading up the Southeast SP team. If you are in the southeast part of the state and want to have almost as much fun as attending an SCCA event, give Doug a call and attend an SP program.

 Welcome to the program Abby Scher and Rex Loden, your assistance was greatly appreciated.  Glad to have you on board as part of the SP team.

Also want to thank Doug for bringing out his crowd-pleasing EP race car.  As always, the students/teachers crowded around to see it and ask questions

Hey! What's everybody looking at?
Oh yeah! It's Doug's race car.

2022 NCRSCCA Scholarship Booth at VIR for IMSA

A great team of NCRSCCA Members Jill Cruz, Sam Fouse, Tim Lyons, Doug Piner, Bruce Dover, Steve Martin, Jerry Pell, John Lindquist all donated their time to spread the word about the Scholarship Program. Special THANKS to Victor Seaber for bring his formula race car for fans to view.

Donations were taken for the Scholarship Program. The VIR Oak Tree Slab artwork was on display and racing fans informed about the on-line auction Sept. 16 to Oct 10, 2022. We were excited to have Connie Nyholm, owner of VIR, stop by the booth for a photo with the Oak Tree artwork. Thanks Connie!  The Slab is on display at the Oak Tree Tavern, VIR.

Tell EVERYONE about this one-of-a-kind treasure. All of the funds raised from the auction goes to the Scholarship Program.

NCRSCCA Scholarship Program at South Boston High School, South Boston VA

What an exciting day we experienced at the South Boston High School. The whole staff at the school were just great.

Special guests Connie Nyholm, owner of VIR, and Keri Davis, Creative Marketing Manager were in attendance. We could not have grown this program without the support of VIR. How very special Connie and her team are to embrace this effort to help young folks and expand racing in general.

NCRSCCA members: Jill Cruz, Eric Cruz, “Doc” Malone, Tim Lyons and John Lindquist were excited to be at South Boston High School. The day unfolded early with the first presentation starting at 9:00 a.m. We were able to have 4 groups of students.

Following each presentation, the students filed out to see Eric’s FE2 formula car. Huge smiles all around, especially when Eric fired up the race car. And yes, still the most common question: “Can I get in it?”

The NCRSCCA team did such a great job, the school is already looking for a return date next year.

We will be looking forward to another fun day next year at South Boston High School.
