Andrew Winesette and Benjamin Winesette, both 20 years old and twin brothers, joined their older brother Galen Winesette, 22, in the Motorsports Technology program at PHCC. Benjamin said they’ve always loved “anything with four wheels and a steering wheel.”

Galen said since he’s a couple of years ahead of them, he didn’t get to enjoy the school environment much with his brothers.

“I guess it would’ve been a lot better if we would’ve been the same age because we could’ve helped each other out with (school) and stuff like that,” he said.
 Both Andrew and Benjamin said they are all about the engines, but Galen said he enjoys learning about the entire industry.

Bobby Scruggs served 38 years as a NASCAR official and was the founder and owner of Racing Image in Roanoke. Bobby passed away on January 22, 2005, after a thirteen year battle with cancer, but he “Never Gave Up” and he truly appreciated the support of the NASCAR family throughout his fight. The Bobby Scruggs Memorial Foundation was established as a component fund of this region's community foundation, Foundation for Roanoke Valley, to:

• memorialize James R. (Bobby) Scruggs' longtime dedication to the sport of motor racing;

• to honor and commemorate his integrity, forthrightness, dependability and respect for others;

• to raise scholarship funds for young men and women who are pursuing a career in motorsports; and

• and to pay tribute to his long and determined struggle against cancer. 

The success of the Foundation is due to the support of family, friends, corporations, and The NASCAR Foundation.
