This competition has not yet posted any deadlines.

The Student Racing Challenge is the flagship series in the National STEM League (NSL). Through it, students own a motorsports business.  The ultimate goal is to engineer performance: personal performance, team performance and of course, race performance.  Teams with the fastest, most stable and efficient car that also have a sound fuel strategy will win races.  Race points are however only one-third of a team’s total.  Like professional race teams, Student Racing Challenge teams must also have a strong R&D focus (Data-Driven Design and MODS), marketing strategy and work toward becoming leaders in their communities.

Racing teams compete online in an annual points race and face-to-face at Open Invitationals across the country. Points leaders and Invitational winners are invited to the NSL Finals at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute . To compete in the Student Racing Challenge series, a base or turnkey Student Racing Challenge kit is required in year 1. Materials are non-consumable so you can reuse them year after year, with just small repairs and replacements required from time to time. For continued access to the ‘competition website’ and events, annual registration is required.
