When it comes to jumping in the driver’s seat and taking the lead on a rewarding career path, it’s helpful to have someone on your pit team who has the experience and the know-how to take you from the green flag to the finish line. At Pennco Tech, we’re happy to have former NASCAR crew chief and current FOX Sports analyst Larry McReynolds. In his role as our “Career” Crew Chief, McReynolds looks forward to a bright future with our team in Blackwood, New Jersey, and Bristol, Pennsylvania.
McReynolds grew up around racing as a teen in Birmingham, Alabama. Beginning with the short race tracks near his hometown, McReynolds eventually made his way into the fast lane as a NASCAR Crew Chief. Throughout his successful career, he’s won nearly two dozen races with several legendary drivers, such as Ricky Rudd, Davey Allison, and Dale Earnhardt Sr. While he’s currently a racing analyst for FOX Sports and a columnist for foxsports.com, America’s Crew Chief is also taking the lead here at Pennco Tech.
“Perseverance, hard work, and determination helped me turn my passion into the best decision of my life, and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it,” says McReynolds of his professional path. “You can experience this, too, with the hands-on training you’ll receive at Pennco Tech – the ‘premier pit crew’ that will help you turn your passion into an exciting new career opportunity.”
Founded in 1973, Pennco Tech is an ACCSC-accredited institution that offers an engaging, positive learning environment that sets students up for success. Getting on the road to a rewarding future, like what McReynolds has experienced, starts with the right training. We offer several career-focused programs, including:
Through challenging, hands-on educational opportunities, students at Pennco Tech learn valuable skills with real-world applications. Our Bristol campus is one of the few trade schools in the area that serves as an official Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) test site. Fostering workplace safety, our OSHA certification courses are available to the students. We also offer it to employers in the area who wish to have their employees trained.
McReynolds built his successful career on hard work and a commitment to his goals – just like the students at Pennco Tech. Our crew proudly maintains a longstanding reputation for student achievement and high job placement rates. Along with affordable tuition and small class sizes, over 95% of our students benefit from financial aid. Students can also take advantage of day and evening classes to suit their busy schedules.
When it comes to job searching, our career services department is available to current students, recent grads, and alumni. Whether they’re preparing for that first interview or building a resume for a career shift later in life, our knowledgeable staff is ready to assist.
“When you love what you do, you’ll do it well,” says McReynolds. “Start your engines, because your new career starts here!”

I enjoyed all my teachers. They made it interesting and challenging. I enjoyed going back to school at the age of 48! Career Services was a big help to me. Danielle was great. She helped me with my resume and showed me how to apply. I got the job with Dietz and Watson! Pennco Tech was the right choice for me as I get ready to start my career.Mark E. - Electrician Graduate
