Any performance shops hiring ?

I have a friend that went to UTI in Houston, and I guess he did so good in school that they gave him quite a bit of his tuition back, some kind of honor that 1 or 2 students per class get on occasion, as a reward for outstanding performance.

He is in Houston right now working at Corvettes of Houston, but is moving back to DFW area this weekend.

He would like to get in the door in a performance related scenario. He is not interested in working in a dealership at all.

He would like to work full time, and I can only imagine him being extremely dedicated, willing to learn, and I can vouch for the fact that he has quite a bit of common sense and intelligence.

I told him I would try and help him out, and I know he is going to check out a local shop when he gets in town this weekend.

So.... if you are in a position to give a guy a shot at working in your performance shop, or you can recommend one to contact, I would appreciate your input.

Thanks much,

Chris

if he wants to stay in houston, I know the Foyt family is always looking for people to work on the indy car team. I know they've had good luck with kids out of the UTI program in the past.

real cobras don't have fog lights
