It’s race day.
The Diverse Power Grand Prize is back for its second season, with middle-school and high-school Greenpower racing teams ready to attack the course at LaGrange College.
After a safety meeting at 8 a.m., the racing begins at 8:30 a.m. with the high-school teams taking the track, and there’ll be a middle-school pit-crew challenge at the same time.
At 10:30 a.m., the middle-school teams will hit the course for their first semifinals race.
At 12:30 p.m., the second middle-school semifinal race will be held, and the second high-school race starts at 2:30 p.m.
At 4:30 p.m., the top 16 middle-school teams from the semifinal heats will compete for the championship.
An awards ceremony will be held at 6:15 p.m.
