Motorsports Research at North Carolina State University 962497
For eight years, in conjunction with the General Motors Corporation, a graduate program in motorsports research and education was developed at North Carolina State University. This program sought to favorably impact the General Motors racing program with the application of advanced technology and to use motorsports as a vehicle for training engineering students. Faculty and students were involved with NASCAR Winston Cup, Indy Car, and NHRA Pro-Stock drag racing. This paper details the accomplishments of the program.
