ELKHART — Students at the Elkhart Area Career Center put their competitive mechanic skills to the test recently as they broke down and rebuilt a Chevrolet small-block engine in less than half an hour.

This skill has earned them more than $290,000 in scholarship money for their performance in the Hot Rodders of Tomorrow Engine Challenge that took place in Indianapolis this month.
