Motorsports Academy Announces New Partnership With South Boston Speedway Race Team

Halifax County Public School waved the green flag on a new partnership today. The Motorsports Academy has teamed up with South Boston Speedway Limited Sportsman Division Driver Terri Marks (formally Terri Williams) to offer students a new hands-on learning opportunity.

"We are so excited to be working with Terri Marks. Her participation with the students in the Motorsports Academy will open new doors for learning," said Superintendent Paul Stapleton. "Our Motorsports Academy students will be acting as the crew supporting her race car for the upcoming 2007 season. With the help of our students, this racing team will represent the Morotsports Academy and highlight how our young people are finding their way into these motorsports careers."

Terri Marks is a native of Capron, VA and has been racing for 12 years. In 2005, Marks competed in the NASCAR Late Model Stock Car Division at South Boston Speedway as a member of the Drive for Diversity, a program supported by NASCAR. In 2004, Marks won the grand Stock Championship compiling 3 wins and 8 top five finishes.

"This area of the state provides excellent positioning for the Motorsports Academy and this partnership is a natural fit for us," Marks said. "Our greatest hope is the students will take all that they can from this experience and we will do everything we can to teach them what they need to know to be successful."
