March 5, 2014- Students participating in Delaware Speedway’s 2014 High School Challenge are set to make history: with thirteen area High Schools from London, St. Thomas, Parkhill, Forest, Ingersoll, Woodstock, Chatham registered to participate, the stage has been set for this year’s program to become the largest of its kind in Canada.
The program provides area high school students and their teachers with access to vehicles, safety equipment, and mentorship as they construct their own entry-level race cars which will be entered into competition in Delaware Speedway’s most affordable entry-level series: the Bone Stock Chaos Cars. During the race the cars will be driven by some of Delaware Speedway’s top drivers and personalities. The Bone Stock vehicles are known for their ease of preparation and affordability making them the ideal choice for a class project.
Thirteen schools from across the region have registered for this season’s program including:
Westminster Secondary (London)
H. B. Beal Secondary School (London)
Clarke Road Secondary School (London)
G. A. Wheable (London)
