From the Gainesville Times website:

Dennis Shirley cranks a custom racing motor, and the sound bounces off the walls of East Hall High School’s auto shop.

Shirley, the school’s automotive technology instructor, worked with more than 60 students over the last year to build a custom racing motor, sponsored by race car owner Ron Olexa. The engine is destined for Olexa’s custom ’68 Lola, which will be housed at Road Atlanta in Braselton once complete.

Assistant Principal Heather Barrett said the students worked more than 200 hours on the engine.

“They’ve been building it from scratch for him,” Barrett said. “We’re the only school in Hall County that has an automotives program still, and we have quite a shop down here for the kids to learn in. A lot of our kids go into the industry from this program.”
