DRIVE One is a 501(c)(3) that provides at-risk youth with vocational training in automotive technology, machining, welding, and transportation design.
Our Mission Statement is "Professional, STEAM-driven education through collaboration with Industry".
To help connect students with industry and employment opportunities, we have them build project cars, then enter each into competitions to showcase their work before employers and industry personnel.
Many of those competitions include Stock Car races, with our student-built 1970 Nova Street Stock.
Since we introduced the Nova in 2015, the car & students have competed at venues such as Salem Speedway, Kentucky Motor Speedway, Winchester Speedway, Lucas Oil Raceway, and even the US Short Track Nationals at Bristol Motor Speedway.
In 2015, we became the first team with a student-composed crew to capture a Top-15 points finish in a professionally-sanctioned racing series (Great American Racing Series [GARS]).
Since then, we've run a partial schedule on the Championship Racing Association (CRA) Street Stock circuit against the best Street Stock drivers in the country.
All support from Champion's Garage will help us run the full 15-race CRA season, as well as transport students with us to pit the car to gain experience and connect with industry employers and personnel.
