Hot Rodders of Tomorrow

Students… Start your engines!

Hot Rodders of Tomorrow is a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Team Activity for
your High School CTE Class. Teams of 5 High School Students disassemble and reassemble a Small
Block Chevy 350 Engine. The event is timed and judged with time penalty applied for mistakes. Any
team that qualifies with a time of 33 minutes or faster with time penalties added will be qualified for
the 2018 Hot Rodders of Tomorrow Dual Championship at the 2018 SEMA Show (Las Vegas, NV) or
2017 PRI Show (Indianapolis, IN). Hot Rodders of Tomorrow has awarded over $20 million in
scholarship opportunities thanks to our college partners like OTC.
