The list of semifinalists for the second class of the Kulwicki Driver Development program was announced Wednesday morning and includes Natalie Decker of Eagle River, Bobby Kendall of Montello, Reagan May of De Pere and Alex Prunty of Lomira.
The program honors the legacy of Alan Kulwicki, the late 1992 NASCAR champion and UW-Milwaukee engineering graduate, while providing financial assistance and career coaching for upwardly mobile young drivers.
May was a finalist in the inaugural 2015 class. Ty Majeski of Seymour won last year, earning nearly $55,000.
