American Solar Challenge is a solar car race across a large portion of the US, many universities try to compete in it, few qualify, and even less finish the race. Several days into the race University of Missouri-Rolla is in first place, this can all change within a day but as of now UMR is doing well. Why post this? Well first some of you may be a slight bit interested in this, second 2 of your TS moderators are alumni of University of Missouri Rolla, myself and Poertner_1274. And there are also a couple others from that school that post here: Goalie, gfries_1280, and gx1298. One of my grad school professors is the main dude for overseeing the students in this competition so I get to hear a lot about our solar car team in class. Here are the standings so you can follow our progress: http://www.americansolarchallenge.org/daily_race_standings.html That page has lots of other links to further explain and show how well the teams are doing.
