Good Question…We’ll FInd Out Saturday at 11th Annual Electrathon

High School and college teams look to answer that question Saturday morning on the speedway’s half mile banked oval.

Considering battery charge, weight, wind resistance, speed and design, with 11 teams fielding 22 cars attempting to solve it.

 

The competition  will involve two 60 minute heats to see  how many laps  a light weight battery powered motor will go. 

 

Free to watch in the grandstands.
