“The Hot Rodders of Tomorrow engine building competition is a fantastic program that gets our youth excited about Automotive Technology,” York County School of Technology instructor Todd Kessler said. “I have watched our students become more confident in their abilities, collaborate & communicate better with peers, and manage pressure better while competing in these competitions.

“Last year we had our first team make it to nationals. We attended the UTI qualifier and were close to qualifying, but didn’t. The team of students asked to try again at another qualifier. With our administration’s support, we traveled to Michigan and it paid off… we qualified for nationals. That team’s dedication to this competition has now boiled over to our two younger teams and the level of excitement has never been higher. These young students have dedicated countless hours to improve their abilities and communication for competition. Their excitement has led our administration to provide the resources for a qualifier right here at York County School of Technology this year. We enjoyed all the competing today and the excitement here in York County.”
