Students to take part in auto skills contest

Posted: Updated:
DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) -- Students from across the country are heading to Ford Motor Co.'s world headquarters in Michigan to compete for scholarships and prizes.
And for the title of best student auto technicians in the nation.
Two-person teams of high school juniors and seniors are to represent their states Tuesday in the 65th annual Ford/AAA Student Auto Skills national finals in Dearborn.
The contestants must race the clock and each other to correctly diagnose problems within a car and then provide the fix.
The idea is to encourage students to continue their educations and pursue careers in the automotive service industry.
The winners will have the opportunity to shadow the pit crew of NASCAR driver Trevor Bayne later in the season.
