There’s nothing better than traveling the back roads of America in an old car with a little fun competition on the side — unless you are a high school or college student getting to do the same thing.
The GreatRace’s X-Cup division provides that opportunity for students each year as high school and college teams from across the country gather for the event each summer. Teams from Oklahoma, New York, Alabama, Kansas and Virginia have taken part in the last five years. And now a high school team from Arizona is joining the X-Cup division for the first time in 2016 (along with a first-time college team from Ohio).
Dysart High School is prepping a Mercury Cougar for the race, and you can read about them getting ready by clicking the link below.
