Can anyone help?

Hello my name is Andrew and I’m 17. I go to school for mechanics. They teach engine work but not the real detailed things. I am really interested in engine work and was wondering if y’all know someone who would be able to help and teach me things. I know the basic stuff taking an engine apart and putting it back together, valve adjustment, and timing. My heart is in racing and I’ve been around it some that’s why I am coming to y’all. Thank you for reading and any little information will be great! Have a good day!

What i would do is go to local engine shop and talked to them about working there and they probably won’t pay you much but you could learn some things and go from there.
