UW finished 1st at MIS in 2007The Formula SAE competition is a premier collegiate engineering competition which allows students to apply their engineering principals in the design and manufacturing of a prototype racecar. The students must test the vehicle to determine which improvements will make the car faster, more maneuverable, or more responsive. Historically, these students have shown the fastest advancement in this country’s leading companies. In return, these companies support this project and leverage its graduates.

Members of the Wisconsin Racing team gain depth in their engineering knowledge while applying it to a practical application. Students exhibit a high level of dedication as they juggle their responsibilities to the team with an intense engineering course load. Although members are given the option to receive credit for their work, the time and effort they put in makes it evident that they are passionate about what they do.



Winners Circle - Charlie Schultz takes 3rdMay Motorsports checking in with a racing weekend update. This past weekend was not a race for points, but an opportunity to race with the International Supermodified Association (ISMA). The Friday night 40 Lap race was canceled due to weather and rescheduled for Saturday morning @ 10:30 a.m. There were 33 cars competing for a starting spot in this race of which 27 made the field. The 100 Lap race took place as scheduled on that same day in the evening with 28 cars taking the green flag. Charlie Schultz in the May Motorsports #7 car was 2nd fastest qualifier for both racing events.

Martino at Jeg's Super Quick SeriesJuly 19, 2010 --

We are just getting back from the NHRA Jeg's Super Quick Series event at Kil-Kare Raceway in Xenia, Ohio. This is a unique event to participate in for many reasons. It's an indexed 1/8th mile event. They qualify 32 dragsters closest to a 4.50 seconds index (similar to the "Price is Right" theory, anything faster than 4.50 seconds doesn't count). We went with our reliable .33 / .36 Ny-Trex Nitrous Oxide Systems tune-up for the event. We ended up qualifying 11th after our first qualifying session with a 4.603 in the right lane and came back for the second session in the other lane and ran a 4.597...



Kil Kare SpeedwayAnother bitter sweet weekend for the May Motorsports Racing Team. Both of our cars clocked both 1st and 2nd fastest qualifying positions, but only one of our cars would see the drop of the checker flag.  Interesting enough though, we have now taken both the 1st and 2nd positions in points with our racing organization which is Midwest Supermodified Association (www.midwestsupers.com) #7 Charlie Schultz @497 Points, #77 Tim Ice@ 494, #19 @ 493 and #49 @ 491.  Our organization scores points for qualifying, heats, and features.  So the season certainly is heating up for a points battle with three MSA “wing” races remaining in our season.  So stay tuned as we continue on with our season! Up next for the team, Sandusky Hy-Miler which is an International Supermodified Association sanctioned race next weekend, but first we have one wrecked race car to get back into race ready condition!



May Motorsports checking in with a race weekend update!  The team headed to Oswego, NY this past weekend for the King of Wing annual  two day event.  Unfortunately, mother nature (rain!!!) got involved turning our weekend into a one day show instead.  It was a good “points” weekend for the team as Charlie Schultz in the #7 took the lead with his fast qualifying time and Tim Ice in the #77 is now tied for third with his race weekend 2nd place podium finish...
