From the Hometown Life website:

Curtis La Graff is ready for a little Formula Hybrid racing.

The Lawrence Technological University computer engineering student is part of the 2016 team of student designers charged with building an open-wheel, single-seat plug-in race car that’s powered by an electric motor and an internal combustion engine.

“Both engines run at the same time,” said La Graff, 22, of Brighton. “So there’s kind of an efficiency question that’s usually handled by the students … how do you want it to run? Do you want one engine going more than the other one? That’s what we’re currently working on now with the car.”
