From Brandi Owczarz’s article on the Calhoun Times website:

Students in Tim Watkins Automotive Technology class at Gordon Central High School recently competed in the Hot Rodders of Tomorrow at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Hot Rodders of Tomorow is an engine building competition where students take apart a car engine and put it back together in a race against the clock. Twenty high schools competed at the event.

“Students from across the United States competed at the event,” said Watkins. “The students had to completely disassemble a Chevrolet 350 engine and then reassemble it.”

The students had to follow strict guidelines in the disassemble and reassemble process.

“The time we needed to move to national competition was 34 minutes or less,” said Watkins. “We had one previous competition in Chattanooga a few weeks ago, and had a time of 42 minutes. As a first year team, that is great; most of those times are around an hour.”
