Kulwicki estate gift helps UWM

Here is a note from the athletics world that will benefit UWM's School of Engineering, as the estate of late NASCAR standout Alan Kulwicki is making a large donation to his alma mater.

Kulwicki, a Wisconsin native, died in a plane crash in April 1993. He graduated from UWM in 1977 with a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering.

A number of spots on the web have this story, but a good summary is located here.

The estate is also making a donation to UNC Charlotte, which actually has a motorsports engineering program.
