Solar Car Challenge Celebrates 26TH Season of Competition at Texas Motor Speedway

Wednesday, Jul 06 309
The Solar Car Challenge returns to Texas Motor Speedway from July 14-20, with three days of qualifying and four days of racing competition where all entrants’ vehicles are powered solely by the sun.
 
The Solar Car Challenge (https://www.solarcarchallenge.org/challenge/) is an education program designed to motivate students in science, engineering, and alternative energy. High school students are taught how to plan, design, engineer, build, race, and evaluate roadworthy solar cars.
 
Scrutineering of vehicles participating in the Solar Car Challenge will take place July 14-16, beginning each day at 8 a.m. Each day of the four-day competition, July 17-2, begins at 9 a.m. A media event will be held Friday, July 15 from 9:30-11 a.m. in the garage area at Texas Motor Speedway.
 
Car breakdowns, variations in weather, track conditions, and team experience limit the number of miles a team can drive each day during the four-day competition. The team driving the most miles accumulated over the four days of the event will be declared the winner in each racing division.  
 
The Challenge has 261 high school solar car projects located in 39 states, Canada, Mexico, Costa Rica, Puerto Rico, Bahamas, Spain, Uzbekistan, and Hong Kong. The Solar Car Challenge is hosted by Texas Instruments, Oncor, and Lockheed Martin.
