Most ambitious young gearheads have wondered what it would be like to have a pro level racing team with their friends. This video is a first hand account of that exact dream becoming reality. How a bunch of college students who didn’t know each other prepared and raced an Indy Car at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway! More than that, you’ll enjoy hearing about how great difficulties turned into big wins for students and their careers.
Ed Bolian of Cannonball record fame recently invited Casey Putsch (yours truly!) to record a few episodes on the hugely popular YouTube channel VinWiki Car Stories. Recently, I had the opportunity to tell the adventurous story of the very first year of the Genius Garage Racing, Aerospace, and Design Educational Programs when we took an old Reynard chassis and created an Indy team out of college students to help them get jobs.
Genius Garage is a 501(c)3 non-profit educational charity. It was designed to give the most driven young people their dream shot in automotive design, professional level racing teams, and aerospace engineering to kickstart their professional careers. Enjoy the VinWiki story of how it all began entitled “The Coolest Internship Ever!”
