Challenger has competed in 4 races since our beginning in Spring 2015 and have placed first is two of those races. The Spring race at Whitesburg in 2016 debuted Charlie's body overhaul sporting a body wrap and also a nose designed by students in Challenger's class using Siemen's Solid Edge software and printed at Grissom High School in a 36 hour print. This nose design is now going to England on the car that Team USA is submitting in the kit car race at the International Finals at the Rockingham Speedway in Corby, England in October 2016.
