Two World Records Down and One to Go
Today, October 30, 2010 among a host of Jr. Dragster drivers at the North Star Dragway, Russ Keith automotive instructor drove the “Batt Mobile” to a New Word Record. The National Electric Dragster Association’s class DR/H for 72 volt Dragsters has stood at 10.49 seconds in the 1/8 mile since 2002. Until today, when the “Batt Mobile” designed and built by students of the Project Lead the Way Engineering Program taught by Thomas Babb and the Automotive Technology Program taught by instructors Russ Keith and Matt Howard took to the track and drove away with a new mark of 9.93 seconds.
Two years of hard work and determination from nearly 200 students paid off. The record is ours.
These are World Record Smiles.
