Velocity Lab in Session
Matthew Marchiando always had a thing for suspension and setups. He chose the part of the Car of Tomorrow that he wanted to perfect (his online application read "specifically how the front splitter limits front-end travel"), and through the inaugural Red Bull Velocity Lab internship, Red Bull Racing will provide the tools and techincal expertise to make that happen.
A 20-year old mechanical engineering student of the University of California-Davis, Marchiando will help make Red Bull's Toyotas go faster, with an eye ultimately on living the technical life in NASCAR. Matt beat out 113 other applicants for the position.
This week Matt begins work at our race shop in Mooresville. He is working with the vehicle dynamics engineers under the direction of Technical Director John Probst.
"It's pretty overwhelming being here," Marchiando said of Red Bull Racing, "but it's really a dream come true and it's where I want to be."
