Students, Faculty Help ‘Mini-Indy’ Run Smoothly, Fairly


Penn College's multi-tasking 'Mini-Indy' contingent College-operated refueling station helps maintain integrity, consistency A welder at the ready for emergency repairs A mix of about 12 Penn College faculty members and students volunteered at the Susquehanna 500 Mini-Indy the local Red Cross’s largest fundraising event that was postponed from September. Penn College automotive students and faculty from automotive and machining provided technical support for the race, in which teams comprised of businesses or individuals raise money for the Red Cross. Penn College operates a safety and technical inspection of the karts before and after the race to make sure everything is fair for the racers. “The college also operates a fueling station at the event to be sure that all teams run the same fuel for fairness purposes,” said Chad H. Rudloff, an automotive instructor in the School of Transportation Technology (who also provided the photos). “We also support the teams who are racing by providing miscellaneous parts or technical help if needed throughout the race, as well as welding services if their kart breaks.”
