The Alliance of Automotive Service Providers, Minnesota (AASP-MN) recently raised nearly $8,000 in its 2012 fundraising campaign to support the AASP-MN Automotive Education Fund. The majority of that money was raised at the association’s annual Race for Automotive Education, held Jan. 17-18 at ProKart Indoors, Burnsville and will fund scholarships for automotive students enrolled in NATEF-certified mechanical and collision repair programs in Minnesota.
During the course of the two-night event, 110 racers tore up the track in state-of-the-art European karts, reaching speeds of nearly 40 miles per hour. Many fans and spectators were also on hand to cheer their teams on. Twenty-two teams of mechanical and collision repair shops and industry suppliers were represented.
Trophies were awarded to the 1st place and runner-up teams. The victors were:
Tuesday, January 17th
1st Place Lehman’s Garage – Team #2, Bloomington
Runner Up Austin’s Auto Repair, North Mankato
Wednesday, January 18th
1st Place PJW Automotive, New Brighton
Runner Up Superior Service Center Team #1, Eagan
"Members use this event as an opportunity for team-building, while at the same time raising money for a very worthy cause," said Judell Anderson, AASP-MN Executive Director. "Everybody had a blast!"
The Automotive Education Fund was established in 2002 to provide financial resources to support automotive students, enhance automotive programs and raise awareness of career opportunities in the automotive service industry. Since its inception, nearly $113,000 has been distributed directly to students enrolled in automotive programs through the association’s scholarship program and Skills USA participation.
