Taking first place at last weekend’s Tarrant County College Qualifying Event was Team MSD of Tulsa Tech, Oklahoma. The team had the low time of 24:30.
The runners-up, who also qualified for a spot at the Hot Rodders of Tomorrow Dual National Championships later this year at SEMA and PRI shows, included Team Edelbrock from Eastern Oklahoma County Tech Center in Choctaw, Oklahoma (29:42), Team K&N (30:53), and Team Energy Suspension (32:44) of Tulsa Tech.
Meanwhile, two qualifying events will take place this weekend.
On the west coast on April 2, MagnaFlow Exhaust in Rancho Santa Margarita, California is holding its first-ever Hot Rodder qualifying event. At the same time, the Chattanooga Cruise-In in Chattanooga, Tennessee will host its first Hot Rodders of Tomorrow competition as well.
MagnaFlow will host students at its Tech Center where the company designs and tests products. The students will not only compete for a spot at the Hot Rodders of Tomorrow Dual Championship, but also will get a tour of MagnaFlow and learn the types of jobs in demand.
Car enthusiasts are encouraged to bring hot rods to the cruise-in in Chattanooga. Tours also will be available at the Coker Tire museum. The event is free.
Teams at both the cruise-in and MagnaFlow’s qualifying event are competing for a chance to qualify for the Dual National Championships held at the SEMA and PRI shows.
