PERFORMANCE Speed, Precision Rule at Engine Challenge By Patricia Kaowthumrong T eam Moroso from Eastern Oklahoma County Tech Center in Choctaw, Okla., won the 2013 Hot Rodders of Tomorrow Engine Challenge Championship. The Hot Rodders of Tomorrow program is designed to encourage high school teens to take an interest in the performance aftermarket. Each Hot Rodders team, which consists of five students and one instructor, competes to disassemble and reassemble an engine with aftermarket components in the shortest amount of time. Team Moroso, sponsored by Guilford, Conn.-based Moroso Performance Products, came in first place during the championship round with an average time of 19:15 minutes, according to the Hot Rodders of Tomorrow. The team also set the national speed record of 18:43 minutes, according to Rodney Bingham, Hot Rodders of Tomorrow program director. "We appreciate Team Moroso's hard work and were impressed with their enthusiasm when we met with them," said Thor Schroeder, Moroso Performance Products national sales and marketing manager. "We think that they and the other teams have a strong foundation that can be built on for their employment paths in the future."
