The WELD-sponsored Eastern Oklahoma County Tech Center Team recorded the fastest time at the Hot Rodders of Tomorrow (HROT) Engine Challenge program regional event held March 20-22 at the Texas Motor Speedway in Ft. Worth. The team of five high school students from Choctaw, OK, competed against the clock in a total engine rebuild and took first place with a time of 22 minutes. The event was held in conjunction with the Goodguys Lone Star Nationals.

As a result of the team’s strong showing they have qualified for the 2015 Hot Rodders of Tomorrow Dual Championship. Qualifying teams will face off at one of the two top industry trade shows – SEMA in Las Vegas or PRI in Indianapolis. The top two teams from the SEMA Show in November will take on the top two teams from PRI in December in the finale to crown the 2015 Engine Challenge Champion. To qualify for the dual championship, teams must complete a total engine rebuild in less than 35 minutes.

“We congratulate the students from Eastern Oklahoma County Tech Center and their instructor, Jim LaFevers, for the success they have achieved so far in the competition,” said Norm Young, president CEO of WELD. “We are excited to support programs like this that encourage the youth of tomorrow to join the automotive industry.”

WELD will assist the team from Eastern Oklahoma County Tech Center with travel expenses to the event.

Hot Rodders of Tomorrow is a nationwide high school engine building competition that challenges youth to pursue an automotive career. WELD has been a sponsor of the organization since 2013. For more information, visit www.hotroddersoftomorrow.com or find them on Facebook.
