Cardinal Motorsports Takes Time to Teach While Preparing for Charlotte

Web posted by MediaFit

Welcome, NC. --

During a week of preparation for one of NASCAR’s newest Nationwide Series teams, the Cardinal Motorsports crew found time to share their shop with a few special visitors – and put them to work.

Four students from the Urban Youth Racing School in Philadelphia, PA were in Charlotte during the All-Star festivities last week for a behind-the-scenes look into the racing world. The UYRS is a program for inner-city 8-19 year olds who are interested in pursuing careers in the motorsports industry. The program is supported by Craftsman Tools.

Four interns were selected to travel to Charlotte to ‘soak up’ the NASCAR industry.
Sammy Yafie, Antonio Littles, Harry Bodek and Joshua Martinez toured RCR on Thursday and attended the NASCAR Sprint Pit Crew Challenge that evening. The foursome then arrived at Cardinal Motorsports on Friday morning and stayed most of the day working with team members on the cars. One of the students, Harry, is interested in engineering and is looking at UNC Charlotte as an option for college.

Being a supporter of education is nothing new for the team, as their driver, Peyton Sellers has been a proponent of education throughout his career. The team also boasts a partnership with SkillsUSA, one of the country’s largest student non-profit organizations, which supports students entering the skilled trades.

It will continue to be a busy week for the team, with preparations for just their third of ten planned Nationwide Series races in the #77 SFP Chevrolet. Sellers will make several appearances for SFP at Southern States retail locations in the Charlotte area this week. Southern States is a major distributor of SFP’s innovative fertilizer enhancement products NutriSphere-N® and AVAIL®.

Coming off a twelfth place qualifying slot and top 20 finish in Richmond earlier this month, the team is looking forward to the run at the famed Lowes Motor Speedway in Charlotte this weekend. “It’s my first time racing on this track”, says Sellers, “but I’ve been looking forward to running here my whole career. We feel really good about how things are coming together. We’re hoping to continue to improve with every race.”

Cardinal Motorsports is also sponsored by Bosch and Jig-A-Loo USA who are also supporters of SkillsUSA.
