CONCORD, N.C. – This year, Hendrick Motorsports partner Hertz is celebrating its everyday heroes – ordinary people doing extraordinary things and going out of their way to provide exceptional service.
At Hendrick Motorsports, there are plenty of everyday heroes as well that help make the organization what it is. With that in mind, the organization is recognizing its own Hertz Heroes at Hendrick Motorsports throughout the season.
The next of those heroes to be honored is Mike Broskin, a mechanical engineer with a specialization in additive manufacturing.
Broskin helps with the 3D printing of parts and prototypes, many of which make their way to the racetrack each and every week.
He was nominated by Jim Wall, the organization’s director of powertrain, in part due to his “can-do attitude,” as he often receives “last-minute requests for near-impossible deadlines and always delivers.”
“Sometimes if a machine finishes at 2 a.m. and we’ve got a demand to get another part out to the racetrack right away, I’ll be here at 2 a.m.,” Broskin explained. “Now, that’s not because I’ve got a boss breathing down my neck making me do it. It’s because I’ve got 600 Hendrick Motorsports teammates here, and we all have the same competitive desire to win. And I don’t want to be the weak link and let one of them down.”
William Byron, driver of the No. 24 Hertz Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, sat down with Broskin for an interview, which can be seen above.
