IUPUI students enrolled in the School of Engineering and Technology's motorsports engineering program have had the opportunity to intern for the IndyCar Series at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway this May. The program prepares students for careers in the motorsports industry as well as automotive-related companies.

Alex Turner, a sophomore in the program, is working with the IndyCar series in tech inspection. This affords him the opportunity to work with all of the teams at the Track -- a valuable learning and networking experience, not to mention a lot of fun!

We caught up with Alex on a busy practice day to get his perspective on the opportunity.
