The 26th Supermileage Challenge at Brainerd International Raceway came to an end on Wednesday. It was another successful with over 60 schools bringing more than 120 cars to the competition.
The objective of Supermileage is to design a car that gets the most miles per gallon on one gallon of fuel. The competition is sponsored in part by the Minnesota Corn Growers Association and includes an E85 division as well as stock, exhibition, experimental, electric and modified.
The stock, exhibition, experimental and modified divisions run on standard E10 fuel. It’s a great way to connect with students and demonstrate the benefits of clean, renewable and homegrown ethanol.
Words can only do so much in describing the funny-looking cars and the innovative spirit at the Supermileage Challenge. We’ve put together the below video to better capture the event.
