Recent Mines graduate, race car driver featured on

Mines alumna Sabre Cook '17, a rookie in the Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship powered by Mazda, recently spoke with about her background in mechanical engineering and how it has influenced her racing career.

From the article:

Cook earned her degree in December and sees the benefits of the education to her racing career.

“It allows me to communicate better with our engineers. It’s nice to be able to talk about specifics and learn about things on the side,” she said.

“Having that background helps me understand why we make the changes to the car that we do and the logic behind the setups we do. It even gives me a chance to suggest a direction we could go with something as well.”
