What’s the Best in Class Challenge?
It ain’t your average extra credit assignment.
To empower the next generation of auto technicians, we invite schools across the country to compete in restoring clunkers into certified hot rods on a budget. This year’s ride? A fourth generation edition of the muscle car that started it all: The Ford Mustang.
We put these kids through the wringer with six weeks of challenges, get-your-hands-dirty learning and auction experience to put their passion for vehicles to the test. Don’t worry, they get help along the way from expert judges Tommy Pike of Tommy Pike Customs and actor, producer and car enthusiast Sung Kang of The Fast and the Furious films.
Like a fresh paint job, this competition has a few layers.
The Nomination Phase (September 12—September 25)
Starting September 12th until the September 25th will be the Nomination Phase. That’s just a fancy way of saying the time where people get to vote on the 57 semi-finalist schools to be one of the top five schools that advances to the challenge phase.
The Challenge Phase (October 10—November 20)
Then, come October 10th until November 20th, we move on to the Challenge Phase of the competition where online voting to decide which team is truly the Best in Class.
Lucky for you, the kids don’t get to have all the fun. When you vote for your team, you can also enter into our Voter Sweepstakes Prize for a chance to win an RC Truck customized by Tommy Pike (an $800 value).
