The University of Northwestern Ohio, the nation’s leader in High Performance Motorsports education will once again make a grand entrance into the Daytona and Volusia 2013 Speedweeks in Florida.

 

At Volusia Speedway UNOH will be fielding 12 cars driven by 12 different drivers and crewed by 33 UNOH Motorsports Team students.  Four of the University built modified cars will be driven by Kody Weisner from Muskegon, Michigan (#20 car), Dwight Niehoff from Lockwood, Missouri (#1 car), Mitchell O’Patik from Wiggins, Colorado (#01 car), and Joel Ortberg from Sardinia, Ohio (#00 car), all UNOH High Performance students. The other cars running UNOH colors will feature Todd Sherman, the reigning Limaland Motorsports Park track champion, along with Kenny Wallace, Kenny Schrader, Austin Dillon, Ty Dillon, David Reutimann, Buzzie Reutimann, and Brendan Gaughan behind the wheel.

 

Because of UNOH’s involvement as the “Official Educational Provider” of ARCA, the University will have an additional 34 UNOH High Performance Motorsports student interns working with ARCA Teams during the ARCA Lucas Oil 200 race on February 16th. Students are assigned to teams at the beginning of the year at Daytona International Speedway and will work for the same team the entire season. This unique arrangement with ARCA and the teams allow students to participate at this high level of competition during the year.  The partnership also provides students the necessary experience needed to secure jobs in their chosen career path.

 

According to UNOH President, Dr. Jeffrey A. Jarvis, “The University has educated students from all 50 states and 28 foreign countries, and in the last few years we have had an influx of students interested in our High Performance Motorsports Programs from the state of Florida.  Racing cars in Florida that have been built, crewed, and driven by UNOH High Performance Motorsports students, the University hopes to continue to encourage both interested prospective students and local Florida high school instructors to check out everything that UNOH has to offer.”

In 1991, UNOH developed and offered the first High Performance/Motorsports Degree in the world and is the only university that owns and operates its own race track facility, “Limaland Motorsports Park”.

 

Founded in 1920, the University of Northwestern Ohio is a private, not-for-profit institution.  Within the University are five colleges:  College of Business, College of Occupational Professions, College of Health Professions, College of Applied Technologies, and the Graduate College.  UNOH offers over 60 programs in High Performance, Alternate Fuels, Diesel, Automotive, HVAC, Agricultural, Business, Marketing, Medical, Legal, Travel, IT Computer, and Sport Marketing and Management with Associate degrees, Baccalaureate degrees, and a Master’s Degree in Business Administration.
