Roush & Yates Racing Engines announces the opening of Roush Yates School of Technology. This decision is a result of the tremendous demand for entry level, well-trained and skilled machinists. CEO Doug Yates stated: “Bridging the skills gap for Engine Technology Education in the US is critical for the future of the racing industry and manufacturing in general.” With a successful history of engine building and racing leading to multiple engine builder awards, Doug Yates has had a vision of sharing Roush Yates’ experience and knowledge via a structured curriculum taught by experienced industry professionals.

Roush Yates School of Technology will offer programs in Engine Block and Cylinder Head Machining. The primary objective of the programs is to give students the opportunity to receive hands-on machining experience that will allow them to start as entry-level machinists upon completion of the training. The students will learn the theory and fundamentals of cylinder heads and blocks as they relate to engine performance.

Classes are scheduled to begin in February 2015 and will be held for a period of 36 weeks for each program. Roush Yates School of Technology is a part of a long time vision to continuously improve the skills available to make the best designed, highest quality components required in Roush & Yates Racing Engines as well as other quality focused industry needs.

“In America, if you want to learn about engines, this is the place to be.” - Doug Yates.

The lasting NASCAR legacy after Dale Earnhardt’s death

On February 18, 2001, seven-time NASCAR Cup champion Dale Earnhardt – the fearless ‘Intimidator’ – was in his element at Daytona International Speedway. While his own DEI team’s cars ran 1-2 towards the finish line, his famed #3 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet Monte Carlo was playing rear gunner to block any late runs from the chasing pack. As the cars tore through Turns 3 and 4 on that fateful final lap, Earnhardt maintained the strongarm tactics that encapsulated his persona… but his actions in those moments sadly proved to be his last.
