“An important part of our Leavine Family Racing team is focusing on the racing community and our local community,” said Bob Leavine, team owner. “I am thrilled to give back to the community by using the organization as a way to provide these students with a look at some different career opportunities available to them.”
CAMP 95 is designed to help the team foster valuable connections with the younger generation of race fans. Leavine Family Racing looks to provide students with career advice and guidance during a period of time where they are expected to make life-changing decisions. With an inside look at the race team, Leavine Family Racing hopes the campers participating will recognize career options that they may not have previously thought of.
“I’m very excited to have the opportunity to show these students how many different roles there are in NASCAR in a hands-on environment like CAMP 95,” said Wally Rogers, crew chief. “I hope that by explaining how I got started in the industry I can somehow make an impact on how they look at their future careers.”
The one-day camp will be held on Tuesday, June 16 at the race team’s headquarters in Concord, N.C. The day will include a shop tour with crew chief, Wally Rogers, who will explain the team’s start in NASCAR and the competition side of racing. Students will also gain insight into the engineering and technology side of the sport, as well as marketing and sponsorship roles found at every race team.
Several key members of the NASCAR industry will also visit the campers. These speakers will share their experiences on how they got started in NASCAR and provide advice to the students as they begin to plan their careers.
