Team members work with students from other departments on campus. Students who participate in the PHS Motorsports program are designing, building painting, soliciting sponsorships, acting as crew members on race day, etc.
In addition to teaching strong technical skills, this series has been successful at reaching students who are not interested in the typical extra-curricular programs. Experience with the race team changes self image and motivation. A goal of the program is to attract the often-disenfranchised student to identify with the sport and/or school activity in an effort to keep him/her interested and proud of their campus involvement. This comprehensive program gives these students a realistic taste of the exciting world of automotive racing. This high school program is the only one of its kind in the U.S. and serves as a pilot program to be developed on a National level.
