With a career goal of working in the motorsports industry and one day achieving ASE Master Certification, Stan Kizer has his immediate sights set on graduation from Parkland College’s Automotive Technology Program.

But while reaching for that goal, he’s having fun. One of Stan’s favorite parts of the program so far has been the opportunity to work on the Parkland Motorsports Sportsman race car. The dirt, constructed to conform to the United Midwest Promoters (UMP) Sportsman rules and competes at Farmer City Raceway.

“What has had the most impact on my education at Parkland was the hands-on experience in the automotive and motorsports programs—along with running the 1980 Chevy Malibu drag car on the chassis dynamometer. I also appreciate the willingness of Parkland’s instructors to help when you are unsure of certain concepts.”
