Slippery Rock University is set to give the green light to an ambitious new group, Rock Racing Club, after the purchase of a Formula SAE race car.

The club is comprised of eight members involved in the new engineering program, and they are looking at next steps to get the organization on track.

Aaron Fry, sophomore finance major and secretary of Rock Racing Club, said the group came to fruition after multiple students approached professors with the idea.

“The club initially started when kids expressed an interest to a professor, who brought them together,” he said. “There are a lot more in the organization now than at the beginning of the school year.”
