Motorcycle Mechanics Institute Signs a Multi-Year Agreement to Serve as Official Technical Institute of Monster Energy Supercross

12 12 2013

AURORA, IL – December 12, 2013 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Feld Motor Sports® announced today that Motorcycle Mechanics Institute (MMI) signed a multi-year agreement to continue as the official technical institute of Monster Energy Supercross through 2016. The partnership marks the tenth year MMI has been a loyal sponsor of Monster Energy Supercross.

In 2014, the MMI/Jeremy McGrath Scholarship program, which began in 2004, will offer $20,000 to deserving recipients hoping to attend the MMI at either the Phoenix, Ariz., or Orlando, Fla., campuses.

“As the leading provider of post-secondary education for students seeking careers as professional motorcycle technicians, sponsoring the Monster Energy Supercross and recognizing the top technicians in the racing series is a natural fit,” said Jocelyn Omen, market segment manager, UTI. “We see firsthand how passion drives our students to push themselves and exceed goals in the classroom, so it’s exciting to see these talented technicians do the same to help their teams.”

MMI, a division of Universal Technical Institute (UTI), will once again award the top-performing technician at the conclusion of each supercross race with the MMI Top Tech award, including a $500 check. The Top Tech award is given to the technician, who against all odds, helped their rider qualify for the Main Event and will be showcased at the end of the night’s racing action. At the conclusion of the 17-race season, the championship’s top technician will be awarded the prestigious MMI Champion’s Mechanic award.

“It’s exciting to once again offer these scholarships to deserving individuals who want to translate their passion for motorcycles into a rewarding career through a program that is the industry gold standard for training,” said McGrath.

“Feld Entertainment® is proud to announce a new multi-year partnership with Motorcycle Mechanics Institute for Monster Energy Supercross,” said Ryan McSpadden, Vice President of Sales for Feld Entertainment. “Entering their tenth year being a sponsor of Monster Energy Supercross, we look forward to continuing our successful relationship with MMI and helping students achieve their dreams in the motorcycle industry.”

The successful alliance between Monster Energy Supercross and MMI has launched the careers of several aspiring supercross/motocross mechanics. Of the top teams in Monster Energy Supercross, nearly 25 percent of their mechanics are MMI graduates.

For the first-time ever, the entire Monster Energy Supercross season will air live on FOX Sports. FOX Sports 1 will air 13 races live and Fox Sports 2 will air four races live, in addition to every race re-airing on FOX Sports 2.

Motorcycle Mechanics Institute Expands Supercross Intern Program with Chapparal Honda L&Mc Racing

15 12 2012

Team owners, Jeremy McGrath and Larry Brooks, build on long-standing relationship with MMI

SCOTTSDALE, AZ – December 14, 2012 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Motorcycle Mechanics Institute (MMI), the leading provider of motorcycle technical education training, is proud to announce Chapparal Honda L&Mc Racing as its 2013 MMI Supercross Intern Program partner. L&Mc Racing, owned by Supercross champion, Jeremy McGrath and well-known team manager, Larry Brooks , joins as the fourth team to work with MMI’s Intern Program.

“We’ve hired MMI grads in the past, and while we know what they are capable of, we also know how hard it is to break into this industry,” said Brooks. “This program is about opening up as many doors as we can for MMI graduates, and giving back to the industry that gave so much to us.”

Beginning in 2013, the intern program will give MMI graduates the opportunity to spend a race weekend with a professional Supercross team to see firsthand the inner workings of a race team.  The interns will partner with the teams’ technicians and get a chance to work on race bikes.

“The volunteer intern program was created with the idea of providing an in-road for MMI graduates to the race industry,” said Jocelyn Omen, enthusiast segment manager for MMI. “The chance to bring the program to such a well-respected team that already employs three MMI graduates was something we jumped on. Five MMI graduates were employed last year through the program and our partner, BTO.com/BBMX, and we hope to continue that success with Chaparral Honda.”

MMI has had a long-standing relationship with Jeremy McGrath through the MMI/Jeremy McGrath Scholarship that began in 2004. The scholarship provides $20,000 in scholarship money to three lucky recipients, to be used at the MMI training facilities located in Orlando, Fla. and Phoenix, Ariz.

Those interested in applying for the 2013 MMI/ Jeremy McGrath scholarship may enter by uploading a video of why they deserve the scholarship to http://www.youtube.com/McGrathscholarship. Entrants are encouraged to be creative in their video submissions through song, dance, comedy, etc. Deadline for entries is April 19, 2013.

Industry Equipment, Input in the Classroom Means Trained Technicians Ready to Work

Harley-Davidson, Kawasaki provide product and curriculum for students

PHOENIX, AZ – April 5, 2012 – (Motor Sports Newswire) –  Motorcycle Mechanics Institute (MMI) has recently added a significant amount of training aids to its manufacturer-specific training programs. Harley-Davidson® and Kawasaki Motors have contributed more than 300 motorsports units to the MMI Phoenix and Orlando campuses, which students will work on directly in the labs.

Harley-Davidson donated more than 65 H-D motorcycles and more than 200 H-D engines to MMI in late 2011. Harley-Davidson and MMI also collaborated to develop hands-on training that is in alignment with Harley-Davidson University® PHD training and will help prepare the students for entry-level positions at Harley-Davidson dealership service departments.  The Harley-Davidson PHD Program is a system specifically designed by the factory to keep professional dealership technicians current with the latest technology and service procedures. The large donation of bikes and engines will be placed into service training within the Harley-Davison Elective at both MMI campuses.

In addition, Kawasaki Motors recently donated 35 units consisting of motorcycles, ATVs, mules and watercraft.  These will be used in the Kawasaki sponsored, supported and equipped 12 week K-Tech Specialist Elective training program in Orlando and Phoenix.  With this type of support from Kawasaki, MMI K-Tech graduates will be better prepared for entry-level technician positions as they start their careers at Kawasaki dealerships across the nation.

“These donations showcase the quality of the MMI programs and the professionalism of its graduates,” said Dennis Hendrix, director of national accounts. “The support received from these partners assists MMI in preparing its graduates for entry-level technician positions within each of the specific brands across the nation.”

Universal Technical Institute Students and Instructors Featured in High-Octane MTV2 Reality Show

22 06 2011

Burnout: The Ultimate Drag Race Challenge Premieres June 25 at 12:00 p.m.(EDT)

PHOENIX, AZ – June 22, 2011 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – As the smell of burning rubber and gasoline fill the air, an engine revs and two cars rocket down the quarter-mile track, racing to the finish – this is Burnout: The Ultimate Drag Race Challenge. Ushering in a new class of reality show, Burnout is a nine-part MTV2 reality series that follows two teams of students and instructors from Universal Technical Institute (UTI) as they battle against each other in a test of skill, persistence and dedication to see who can build the fastest drag car with just 100 hours of build time.

Hosted by drag race legend Clay Millican and freestyle motocross and off-road racer Carey Hart, the action-packed series follows 20 UTI students and four instructors as they participate in challenges and work together to build a drag car from the ground up, all while working feverishly to source parts, keep up on schoolwork and maintain their everyday lives. It all leads up to a final race to determine the winning team, coming down to two cars and just ten seconds on the strip.

Fueled by competitive drive and bragging rights, each episode features the teams competing in various timed challenges, from unbolting engines to diagnosing clip cars, for the opportunity to add more time to their team clock. The premise is simple – win a challenge and win more build time for your team or lose a challenge and along with it precious hours. The winning team will earn scholarships and cash prizes, while the losing team’s car gets crushed.

Burnout: The Ultimate Drag Race Challenge premieres at 12:00 pm(EDT) on Saturday, June 25 on MTV2. Check local listings for more details or visit http://www.uti.edu/Burnout.
