Jan. 12, 2017—On Tuesday and Wednesday, the Alliance of Automotive Service Providers of Minnesota (AASP-MN) held its annual Race for Automotive Education in an effort to raise money for area automotive programs at technical schools.
Several Minneapolis-area body shops—including LaMettry's Collision, Inc., ABRA Auto Body & Glass, Heppner's Auto Body, Hopkins Auto Body, Lake Marion Collision, and Pearson Auto Body—each made a donation to the AASP-MN Automotive Education Fund to race for 200 laps at the ProKart Indoor Racing in Burnsville, Minn.
Judell Anderson, executive director of AASP-MN, expected the Race for Automotive Education to raise over $7,500. A majority of that money will fund scholarships for students enrolled in NATEF- certified automotive programs (collision or mechanical) in the state of Minnesota. Scholarship awards will distributed in the fall of 2017.
