Rebuilding a Racer

About This Kool Project

The Saratoga Automobile Museum's "Rebuilding a Racer" program embraces the history of the Offyette Quarter Midget and encourages students ages 12-18 to become part of the story. Beginning in March 2017, students will restore our 1956 Model 61 Offyette Quarter Midget, research the history of Quarter Midget Racing, prepare content for our Racing in New York exhibit, and learn through hands-on and classroom activities incorporating, S.T.E.M., art, history, and geography.

This program has been made possible through a generous donation by:

Day 6 began with a review of the students homework and a look at their graphs. Dennis then set into a summary of what concepts we have studied so far and the scientific and mathematical data we've collected. The powerpoint can be found at the following link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B2Jjtbag1ksAMzRjMG51UU42U28/view?usp=sharing

After exploring the data, students were then introduced to to a valuable tool that was generously donated to the Saratoga Automobile Museum from the Guyson Corporation. A careful review of the blasting cabinet, machine, parts, supplies, and what it will take to make it operational was done be students and mentors. We also had a little fun in the process.

Moving forward the Museum will acquire all the necessary supplies and materials to use the blasting cabinet for the Rebuilding a Racer program.
