Michigan has completed Scrutineering!

As for 7am this morning, we have passed the braking test and completed the final scrutineering station, dynamics! Of the eight stations, we now have green stickers in all eight. Yesterday, the officials also came by with the equipment to measure our array and upon inspection, we passed as well.

That means we are now ready to race on the track. The track qualifying event begins today in 15 mins and will last two full days. Each team needs to complete 60 laps to qualify. After this is completed we will continue to run on the track to amass as many laps as possible. The team with the most laps, starts the race Sunday morning first.

The car is currently driving to the track and will be ready to start racing at 9am sharp! Steve will be our first driver and Brooke will follow this afternoon.

It takes a lot of skill to get to where you guys are, keep it going!

That is always the biggest relief those green stickers. A picture of ours was the background on my computer for three months after the race.
