MOORESVILLE, N.C., July 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- In July 2002, NASCAR Technical Institute (NASCAR Tech), a 146,000-square-foot training facility in Mooresville, N.C. – known as "Race City, USA" – elevated the term " auto mechanic." The campus opened as the first technical training school to combine a complete automotive technology program and a NASCAR-specific motorsports program offering NASCAR technician courses. NASCAR Tech, a branch campus of Universal Technical Institute of Arizona, Inc., also became the first exclusive education partner of NASCAR, racing's leader. Today, NASCAR Tech is celebrating 10 years of starting careers and has changed the vernacular from auto mechanic to automotive technician and far surpassed the goal of becoming the first in the industry. NASCAR Tech has become the leader in the industry for technical education, graduating thousands of students, many of whom have gone on to careers in the motorsports and automotive repair industries.

"We are fortunate to have had such exceptional partnerships with NASCAR, racing teams, industry partners and dealerships that have offered our graduates opportunities to wake up every day and work in industries that they love and are passionate about," said Jennifer Waber-Bergeron, campus president for NASCAR Technical Institute. "The work these students and grads undertake each day goes beyond the definition of auto mechanic. The work is so technical we wouldn't call them anything other than technicians."

Celebrating 10 years of starting careers, NASCAR Tech will be spotlighting graduates who have excelled in their industry. Since its opening, NASCAR Tech has graduated thousands of students, with most graduates finding work in the motorsports and automotive industries. Specialized programs are offered within the motorsports industry and NASCAR racing teams, providing students with valuable experience and training.
