Supermileage Team Makes Strong Finish at Annual Competition
Members of Eden Prairie High School‘s Supermileage Club saw all their hard work pay off last month at the 26th annual Minnesota Technology Engineering Education Association Supermileage Challenge at Brainerd International Raceway.
According to the Sun Current, the 29-member club placed second in the electric class and third in the modified engine class. Unfortunately, the stock class car was unable to finish the race, despite several attempts.
“I am so proud of the immense amount of work and dedication these students put into these cars,” Supermileage advisor Leigh Hartert told the Sun Current. “The manner in which these students represented EPHS would make you all proud.”
A “competition run” consists of starting with a pre-weighed amount of fuel, traveling 6 miles in under 24 minutes, then re-weighing the fuel and converting the amount used into miles per gallon, the paper reported. More than 60 schools from Minnesota and Wisconsin participated in the challenge, with more than 100 cars entering the various races.
