The School of Automotive Machinists will award $202,000 in scholarships to six high school automotive teams competing in the Hot Rodders of Tomorrow National Championship at the SEMA Show.
Team MSD from Eastern Oklahoma Tech Center, Team Auto Meter from
Loara High School, Team ARP from East Ridge High School, Team PRW from
Fremd High School, Team Edelbrock from North Orange County ROP and Team
Painless from Lakeshore High School will square off in the National
Championship Playoffs, Nov. 2-5 in Las Vegas.
“SAM is happy to support high school automotive students who are
excited about the automotive industry,” said Judson Massingill, founder
and director of education at SAM. “This competition is about engine
building and that’s what we teach our students to dobuild engines that
make a lot of horsepower and stay together to win races. We hope these
students will continue their automotive training and go on to work in
the high-performance and racing industry.”
Organized by the Hot Rodders of Tomorrow, the national
championship contest pits the top engine-building teams from six
regions of the U.S. in a faceoff at the SEMA Show. Teams must properly
disassemble and then reassemble a small-block Chevy engine in the
shortest amount of time while avoiding mistakes.
