Nine teams from seven different schools in Texas and Oklahoma competed at the fourth Hot Rodders of Tomorrow Engine Challenge event of the season, hosted at Tarrant County College in Fort Worth, Texas, on March 24. Five teams made the cut and will have a chance to win thousands of dollars in college scholarships at the 2018 Dual National Championship Playoffs in November and December at the SEMA Show and PRI show, respectively.

To qualify for the Dual National Championship, a team must finish disassembling and reassembling a small-block Chevrolet engine in less than 33 minutes, including penalties.

Team Custom Automotive Network (CAN) from Eastern Oklahoma County Tech Center in Choctaw, Oklahoma, won first place with a blistering time of 19:36. Two teams from Hereford High School out of Hereford, Texas, participated and qualified: Team Proform took second place with a time of 27:40 and Team Vibrant Performance came in fourth with 30:46. Team Comp Cams from Pontotoc Tech Center from Ada, Texas took third place with a 29:14 time.

The fifth-place qualifier was first-time participant Team PRW from J. W. Nixon High School in Laredo, Texas, with the time of 32:05.

“This is a great program that is really going to benefit my students,” said Abel Sanchez, the instructor at J. W. Nixon High School. “One of my students is a senior and going to attend UTI and the scholarship is really going to help him out. The team comes from a low social economic background and the HROT program will benefit students for years to come.”
