Eastern Oklahoma County Technology Center's automotive engine build team members in Jim LaFevers automotive program gained national attention recently when they placed first in the National Performing Racing Industry competition in Indianapolis.
Trace Davidson, Collin Dobson, Brenton Price, Braden Springer and Tyler Wilson, who made up the engine build team, averaged the weekend with a 16:43 time, finishing the competition with a time of 6:11. This marks the fourth year that Eastern Oklahoma County Technology Center students have left Indianapolis with the national title.
“Students came to the shop every morning at 7:30 a.m. for the two weeks before the competition to practice and just really give it their all,” LaFevers said.
