The event is expected to raise up to $15,000 to fund scholarships for students enrolled in ASE-accredited automotive programs in Minnesota
Roseville, Minn.—The 20th Annual Race for Automotive Education is planned for Feb. 22-24, at ProKart Indoor Racing, Burnsville, Minn.
The event serves as the Alliance’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 miles per hour. When the final checkered flag waves, the Race for Automotive Education is expected to raise up to $15,000, which is earmarked to fund scholarships for students enrolled in ASE-accredited automotive programs (collision repair or auto service) in the state of Minnesota. Scholarship awards will be announced in the spring of 2022.
