As I mentioned in a previous post  I used to do solar car racing at the University of Michigan and I still follow the races when the come up.  Today, the American Solar Challenge (formerly known as Sunrayce) started in Plano, Texas, with teams competing in various stages of racing until they reach Calgary, Alberta, Canada on July 22. 

The first stage of the race is a quick run from Plano to Neosho, Missouri, and only Michigan and the team from Principia College  completing it in one day. Tomorrow, the rest of the teams should arrive in Neosho, signifying the end of that stage of racing and moving on to the next stage, a rally style run to Sioux City, South Dakota.
