BC3 hosts NASCAR driver Jimmy Weller

(Butler, PA) Butler County Community College will host NASCAR driver Jimmy Weller on Wednesday, December 10 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. in the Succop Theater on main campus. Doors open at 6:00 p.m.

Weller will bring his Crew Chief and official NASCAR racer to the stage for a rare glimpse behind the scenes of NASCAR racing. He will also share exciting race films, personal stories, and the newest technologies employed to build a winning, high-performance machine.

Weller has a need for speed. The daring driver from Hubbard, Ohio has been flying around tracks of all kinds in everything from go-karts to trucks since he was a boy. Weller was seriously injured 10 years ago when his sprint car crashed at Charlotte Motor Speedway. The young racer underwent a grueling 18 months of recovery, but is driving again today in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

Weller has raced in our area at Sharon Speedway and Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, PA.

BC3 offers a number of educational opportunities related to the NASCAR sport including Advanced Manufacturing, Automotive Technician, CADD, and Additive Manufacturing (3-D printing). Information will be available at this event.

Tickets are $34 for regular admission and $19 for students under age of 18. Call 724-431-4622 or visit bc3.edu/nascar to purchase tickets.
