MOHNTON, Pa. - Maple Grove Raceway will host its annual Universal Technical Institute High School Challenge on Sunday, April 27. Students will drag race in street-legal cars, competing for bragging rights against other area high schools. The Challenge also offers aspiring young mechanics and racers an opportunity to showcase what they've learned in automotive classrooms in front of their peers. Also on the schedule is a high school alumni race: All past participants are welcome to compete in the special Alumni Eliminator.

The overall winner on April 27 will represent Maple Grove Raceway at the NHRA Northeast Division Summit Racing Series E.T. Final in September.

Gates will open at 8 a.m. with time trials at 9:30 a.m.
Race entry is $25 per student. Adult spectator admission is $15, young adults (ages 13-15) are $10 and kids 12 and under are free.
Last year, York Tech student Brandon Witmeyer of Thomasville, Pa., defeated Jeremy Bartman of Daniel Boone High School in the final.
