Lucas Wolfe 410 Sprint Car

Advanced Manufacturing students at Cumberland Perry Area CTC have been tasked with a cool learning experience to blueprint, program, and fabricate specific parts on the Lucas Wolfe Racing 410 sprint car. 

After the 2020 racing season, Lucas Wolfe Racing and CPACTC formed a partnership fabricating specific basic process parts for the sprint car.  Lucas Wolfe said, “The teams operating together and the customized parts that reflect the student curriculum is a great exposure.”  “This experience has ensured excellent quality with a seamless transition just in the first year.” 

Advanced Manufacturing students have been hard at work producing several parts for the Lucas Wolfe 410 sprint car including: wheel spacers, brake caliper mounts, w links for the suspension, wing clamps, and bump stops for the rear shocks.  All seniors in the AMT program, were involved with blueprints, programming, and producing the customized parts.   Students enjoyed this coursework as it uses various AMT machines, diverse daily task assignments, applies program knowledge, and, in their own words, “cool” to see the finished product on the sprint car.

After the conclusion of the 2021 racing season, identifying possible new custom parts such as: tie rod linkage and bump cup spacers that include programming, manufacturing, and curriculum involvement will hopefully continue this unique opportunity for CPACTC students!
