UNL's Husker Motorsports hosts the international collegiate Formula SAE race car competition June 19-22 at Air Park in Lincoln. The 2012 event, also held in Lincoln, drew more than 80 teams and 2,000 participants from the United States, Brazil, Mexico and Japan. Admission is free.
The Society of Automotive Engineers organizes the annual racing event.
Chris Wilson, a UNL engineering student, leads Husker Motorsports. The team has spent the last year improving its entry, using lessons learned in the 2012 event. Last year, the first time UNL entered the event, Husker Motorsports placed 50th out of the 81 teams competing. The final scores are based on cost, presentation, design and autocross performance.
