The Ford/AAA competition mimics a real shop environment where the students receive a car that is "bugged" with various problems that must be diagnosed and repaired in only 90 minutes.
Denali and Cole finished their vehicle in about 80 minutes for 2nd place, narrowly missing first place.
Both students also won the Team High Score for the written exam taken a month prior to the competition.
Both received tools, models, clothing and $5000-$7500 scholarships to UAA, Ohio State and Universal Technical Institute. It took 1 large suitcase, 2 large duffel-bags and a large box to bring home their prizes!
