On The Weekend of March 16th-18th Students from the
DRIVE One TechCenter competed in the 52nd Annual IX Piston-Power Autorama in Cleveland.
With four cars competing in the largest indoor car show in North America, students took home two 1st place trophies (The Nova Stock Car and '65 Shelby Daytona), one 2nd (the '72 Tri-Rod), and a 4th (an '86 Buick Regal).
Students from our Transportation Design Program also completed at 1:5 Scale Clay Model of our '65 Shelby Daytona on-site during the first ever DRIVE One Clay Model Build-Off.
Also shown were the 2018 StarLiter Pedal Cars and Clay Models from the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), and the 1:5 Trans Am Concept that took home the 2017 State Championship at the Michigan Industrial Technology Education Society (M.I.T.E.S.)
There were 9 students in-total who attended the show (though not all were present to be photographed), which made it the largest group DRIVE has ever brought to a show car event.
We congratulate students on their success, and hope they enjoyed the weekend in Cleveland
For the sixth consecutive year, DRIVE returned to Cobo Center to compete in the 66th Annual Detroit Autorama the weekend of March 2nd-4th.
This year, students brought four project cars, including the '65 Shelby Daytona, 2013 Lefthander Late Model, a '97 Jeep, and '72 All-Sport Tri-Rod.
The Shelby took home 2nd in High School Comp, while the Late Model captured 1st in Track Comp. The Tri-Rod also captured 2nd in Special Interest-Motorized, and 1st in High School Custom.
In addition, the 2025 StarLiter Pedal Car from the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) placed 2nd in the Summit High School Pedal Car Challenge, the highest a DRIVE-built pedal car has finished in five years of competing.
Lastly, five 1:25 scale model cars, done by 7th-12th grade students, scored 1st in the annual Autorama Model Car Contest, against over 300 professional model car builders. All twelve model cars done by students placed in the Top-5 in their class, including the Pfaff Design Award, the competition's Top-Prize.
We'd like to Congratulate our students on their success at Autorama, and look forward to wrapping-up the 2018 Indoor Show Car Season at the Piston-Power Autorama next weekend in Cleveland.

The event, which has become one of the top-two biggest annual fundraisers for DRIVE, is also one of the most anticipated events each year for DRIVE Students.

We'd like to thank all the DRIVE One Students, Families, and Sponsors, who showed-up, had fun, and supported our program.
