CARLISLE, PA (June 14, 2010) - Take identical 350 Chevys "dressed out" with 4 BBL carbs, chrome air cleaners and valve covers, aluminum manifolds, headers and high performance ignition components (to replicate engines found in today's muscle cars and hot rods), invite local area high schools with teams of five students to compete against each other and the clock - disassembling and reassembling the engine all with hand tools, add the pressure of working while being judged by officials and cheered on by the GM Nationals faithful and you have the Hot Rodders of Tomorrow Engine Challenge!

We are very excited to announce a partnership with the Hot Rodders of Tomorrow, to host the Northeast Regional Finals at the 2011 Carlisle GM Nationals.  The Hot Rodders of Tomorrow is an educational program for high school students in automotive technology programs. The individual schools set standards and guidelines for involvement.  Grades, attendance and skill level are all factors for participation.  Through the Hot Rodders of Tomorrow Engine Challenge, students get an opportunity to showcase their talents and knowledge gained during classroom sessions and workshops. The engine challenge provides opportunities to develop teamwork and to demonstrate the students' skills, enthusiasm, and ingenuity. The staff of The Hot Rodders of Tomorrow is 100% volunteer and cannot be thanked enough for the thousands of hours they donate to this great event every year.

We hope to see a team coming through Carlisle take the national title, at the SEMA Show, in the very near future!
