    The School of Automotive Machinists donated $57,000.00 toward scholarships to the high school automotive teams that finished first, second and third at the Hot Rodders of Tomorrow Division 4 Competition. Team MSD from Eastern Oklahoma County Tech Center placed first by disassembling and reassembling a high performance engine with a time of 60:15. Each member of the first place team received a $5,000.00 scholarship from SAM and will compete in the National Championship at the SEMA Show in November, 2010. Team Royal Purple from Hereford High School in Texas placed second and each member received a $3,000.00 scholarship while Team Comp Cams from Pampa High School in Texas placed third and each member received $2,000.00.

    “SAM is happy to support high school automotive students who are excited about the automotive industry” said Judson Massingill, Founder and Director of Education at SAM. “This competition is about engine building and that’s what we teach our students to do – build engines that make a lot of horsepower and stay together to win races. We hope these students will continue their automotive training and go on to work in the high performance and racing industry” said Judson.
    Many thanks to Painless Performance Products for hosting such an exciting event, Tim Freeman, Founder of Hot Rodders of Tomorrow, for organizing this automotive competition, Tarrant Community College – South Campus for allowing the competition to use their facility and the judges for volunteering their time and expertise.
