sorry to hijack but one of my dreams is to be on a nhra race team like brute, john force etc. what school would be best or has the best feeder program? you always hear of wyo-tech but really is that true? i kinda like sam but would rather go north then south. (im from pa)im in 11th grade so i wana get my head start. any advice would be great. after school how do i contact a team?

I don't know just the school to pick....but I do know that if you go, and get the best grades, and get a reputation for being both fast and meticulous at taking racecars/motors apart and putting them back together in a mistake-free fashion, the race teams will come looking for you. They pick the cream of the crop. Also be prepared for alot of travel, no, or very little time at home, and not too high a pay scale when you first start. Many of these employees are doing this for the excitement and the glory....Best of luck, wherever you choose to go....:nod: WJ
