SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Sept. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Richmond BMW has
established the Nick McDaniel Memorial Scholarship through the Universal
Technical Institute (UTI) Foundation.

The annual $1,000 scholarship is established for students from Virginia, North
Carolina or Tennessee who are interested in pursuing an automotive technician
education at NASCAR Technical Institute in Mooresville, NC.

"Nick McDaniel was a superb technician and human being," says Alan Bettley,
Service Manager, Richmond BMW. "As a technician, Nick's integrity went
unchallenged, and disrespect was not in his vocabulary. Not a day went by that
Nick didn't put a foot forward toward learning a new skill or improving his
abilities as a professional. The establishment of this scholarship not only
keeps Nick's memory alive, it helps a student with Nick's passion for
excellence to get a technical education."

The Nick McDaniel Memorial Scholarship will be awarded annually to NASCAR Tech
students who meet all of the scholarship's requirements that include
maintaining a 3.8 GPA and 98% attendance record, and applicants must have a
completed and approved Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for
the appropriate year.

"We are pleased to work with Richmond BMW to establish Nick McDaniel Memorial
Scholarship at NASCAR Tech," says Veronica Meury, UTI Foundation Vice
President and Executive Director. "Nick's character and pursuit of excellence
are qualities that we seek in UTI students. This scholarship will go a long
way toward helping a student achieve a technical education with the goal of
pursuing a successful career."

November 15, 2013. For detailed information about the scholarship, visit the
