SEMA-Member Companies Donate Parts for Scholarship Engine—a 700-plus-hp Dart LS Next Package
Launched two years ago, the SEMA Scholarship Engine Project has enjoyed support from nearly two dozen manufacturers and the talents of noted engine builder Ed Pink. The first year saw a 347ci small-block Ford engine go on the auction block, while a 405ci small-block Chevy was built last year. Both engines featured Dart SHP iron blocks and SHP aluminum cylinder heads.
YEN is growing very rapidly and is one of the best ways to open yourself to networking and education opportunities. I encourage any young person in this industry to sign up. You will then be plugged into a network of young executives that is over 800 strong, and you can start getting involved by joining our Member Resource Pool, attending a YEN Mixer or attending the big YEN reception at SEMA. It doesn’t matter the extent to which you get involved at first; it just matters that you take that first step to find out how rewarding the experience can be.
