Alternative fuels webinar highlights NASCAR performance trends and Tesla START program


The National Alternative Fuels Training Consortium held its regular membership expo in July. Expo IV was excited to have three national leaders share information.  As with most organizations, the NAFTC held the meeting remotely. The consortium is a program of the Energy Institute at West Virginia University.

Andy Randolph, technical director with ECR Engines, presented From NASCAR to Your Car, Fuel Trends for Performance and Efficiency, based on his work with Richard Childress Racing.

John Frala and David Favre, heads of the automotive programs at Rio Hondo College and Central Piedmont Community College, respectively, described their experiences with AFV education and the Tesla START program.

And Nana Danso, program manager for the START Tesla Program, was a surprise speaker. Danso explained details about the Tesla Automotive Program and answered questions from the audience.

Trina Wafle, NAFTC interim director, closed the meeting with an NAFTC activities update.
