You may not land a gig driving the cars, but mechanics are always in demand. Jobs in journalism, hospitality, logistics and management are also always needed. If you have a background in any of these areas and want to get involved in the motorsports industry then the internships offered by the Speedway may be a great option for you.
The internships are limited and there is a lot of demand for them. You’ll need to apply online for this. They offer three semesters every year. The spring semester starts in January, and you’ll have to have the application completed no later than the beginning of November. Summer semester starts in June and the application needs to be submitted by March, and the fall semester starts in September with the application due by July.
There are no set number of applicants accepted for each semester. Instead, the committee looks at the number of people that apply, the experience of each applicant, and whether the applicants are willing to work a minimum of 20 hours a week. Preference is given to those who live within a short distance of Concord, but applicants from all over the country are accepted.
