Firm Establishes Motorsports-Related Scholarship at Penn College

Published 06.14.2007


A firm that specializes in after-market performance upgrades for automobiles has established a scholarship fund at Pennsylvania College of Technology.

The Slowboy Racing Scholarship will provide an annual award of $1,000 to a full-time student, enrolled in any major, who is a member of the Penn College Motorsports Association.

"I cannot think of a better way to help young people realize their passion for motorsports than by helping to create a scholarship that will help them further their education," said Michael G. Huml, CEO of Indiana, Pa.-based Slowboy Racing Inc.

"Penn College produces the finest graduates, who are ready to meet the challenge of today's small companies such as Slowboy Racing Inc.," he said. "The graduates have both good business acumen and the skills they need to be productive employees the same day they start work."

Huml noted that his lead machinist is a 1997 graduate of the college's automotive technology management bachelor-degree major.

Slowboy Racing has 22 full-time employees and is considered one of the fastest-growing private companies in the commonwealth. The company manufactures components for performance upgrades, as well as distributing products from other manufacturers.
