To honor the Clairton, PA Police Officer James Kuzak Jr., who was shot three times responding to a home invasion last year, Carnegie Mellon Racing recently re-dedicated its most recent car to Officer Kuzak at a thank you ceremony on campus last week. After the incident, Officer Kuzak donated tools to the team that uses every day to keep our cars well maintained. For this, and to commemorate his service to the community a “Thank You” plaque was presented to him along with an honor patch that will remain on the vehicle.
A local news station picked up the story and aired the footage below:
Carnegie Mellon Racing thanks Officer Kuzak Jr. for his dedication and commitment to service, and wishes him the best throughout his recovery.
Over the past several weeks we have been completing many static and dynamic tests on last year’s car to validate our design and find ways to improve. We’ve also been welcoming our new members and orienting them with the organization. Here we have our testing of CMR 57’s wheel rates, center of gravity, and a freshman grinding away at some steel.
Attention all prospective members! We will be having an information session this coming Monday (9/10), at 4:30 in DH2315 to introduce new students to the Formula SAE program, and to describe exactly we do at Carnegie Mellon Racing. We will be happy to answer all your questions, and will be following the presentation with a tour of the FSAE garage and our newest car.
