Appalachian State University’s Team Sunergy is one of the participants in the American Solar Challenge
It's a race with no fuel, because the cars are powered by solar energy. Saturday morning teams began their 1,700-mile race, starting at the Lewis and Clark Trail in Omaha. Fourteen solar-powered vehicles race through four states and finish in Omaha. National and international schools compete in the American Solar Challenge with two different classes and a variety of styles and techniques.
