Fifty teams from high schools in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Arkansas came to Universal Technical Institute’s (UTI) Dallas/ Fort Worth campus on Jan. 23 to show off their automotive skills and compete for prizes in UTI’s third annual Top Tech Challenge.

Colter Martin and Robert Tighe Jr., from Kiamichi Technology Center in McAlester, placed seventh in the competition and both team members received a $1,000 UTI scholarship.

The teams of two competed in five different areas: parts identification, brake problems, climate control, electrical problems and a written, Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) test with a panel of UTI-Dallas/ Fort Worth instructors judging their work.

“This competition allows students to see firsthand the highly-specialized training and technical knowledge required to become an automotive technician,” said Jesus Miranda, campus president of UTI-Dallas/ Fort Worth. “Plus, it’s a great opportunity for students with a passion for the automotive industry to put their skills to the test in a real-world setting with state-of-the-art equipment.”
