The Abbey gave me the fundamental skills and ideas to grow my career to where it is now. Without the support of the professors and guest speakers, I wouldn’t have the success I have now.

The things that the program (motorsports) and the school teach you from an all-encompassing perspective…pushes you to be well-rounded…it definitely helps you to wear those many hats, and be prepared to take on a full load.

My educational and personal experiences at Belmont Abbey was the catalyst of my success in my career path. The professors and staff take a vested interest their students and support them every step along the way. I am confident that the information and knowledge I acquired is what got me to where I am today.

The Opportunity

Ten years ago when racing legend Humpy Wheeler brought the idea for an academic program built around motorsport, newly minted President Dr. Bill Thierfelder was intrigued. A decade later the Belmont Abbey College Motorsport Management program has evolved from a field of concentration to a full degree major and has become a viable resource for the racing industry. Our innovative program and its related alumni and industry advisors bring together a powerful group dedicated to moving the program into its second decade developing the next generation of motorsport leadership.
