Annual Power Drive Competition Starts This Weekend
Posted: 04 April, 2013
LINCOLN – The annual high school Power Drive competition kicks off this weekend in Lincoln. Scholarships will be on the line for northeast Nebraska high school teams that designed their own electric cars.
The student-built vehicles will be judged on endurance, braking, maneuverability and design. Power Drive begins this weekend with the Big Red Invitational on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s East Campus. Three addition events will be held this spring, including one at the Cuming County Fairgrounds in West Point on April 27th, and the championships May 4th in La Vista. Over 50 schools from across the state will participate, including Winside, Wayne, Stanton, Bancroft-Rosalie and West Point-Beemer.
