Kyle Compton, a senior in the motorsports engineering program at IUPUI’s School of Engineering and Technology, received the surprise of a lifetime during the 2016 Red Bull Global Rallycross series’ annual Awards Celebration. Held at the end of the race season each year, the event took place at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles on Oct. 11. In the Off Track category, Kyle, a crew member for Bryan Herta Rallysport, received a Supercar Crew Award.
"I was stunned for a bit when they said my name,” he explained. “They said the award was intended for a young, hard-working employee on a race team. I take pride in my work ethic, so it was a huge honor.”
