Merrill Quintrell

Driving Instructor

Call Sign: Raider

Since childhood, Merrill has always had a passion for machines.  It doesn’t matter if it rolls, floats, or flies.  A graduate of the Bertil Roos Advanced Racing School, he holds an SCCA Full Competition Racing License, an FAA pilot’s license, and a North Carolina Class A CDL.   Merrill works for the Electric Power Research Institute, and when he’s not solving engineering challenges for the power industry around the world, he can be found flying his single-engine Piper Cherokee, or driving one of his vintage Corvette Stingrays. His daily driver is a shadow black 2019 Dodge Charger RT Scat Pack.

Merrill volunteers as one of our instructors because he is passionate in his belief that good judgment, proficiency, and skill can only be achieved through quality training and hands-on practice.   His calm demeanor, patience, and extensive knowledge of car control skills and driving techniques make him a natural for the Teen Driving Solutions School instructor team.
