As a pit crew member for a motorsports team, Ross Albertson likes to race against the clock and work under pressure.
It made sense then that Albertson would want to participate in a qualifying event last month for the inaugural Auto Tech National Championship competition taking place on the campus of his alma mater, the University of Northwestern Ohio.
"I like to challenge myself," says Albertson, who also works for a local municipality. "And I like to support UNOH. I learned a lot there."
The college campus, which has a number of auto-related majors, was the first stop in the March Madness-style event to find the best professional and student techs in the country.
