While I was spending my three-day mini vaction in Ramona, California I found out that Ramona High School and nearby El Camino High School advanced auto shop classes will both be building full blown drag cars/trucks that will be featured and raced in a "Shoot Out" on Speed Channel's Drag Race High Reality TV Show this fall.
Just ask Robert Grace Ramona High School's auto shop teacher. He and 24 of his top advanced auto shop students will be transforming a regular car/truck into a high-speed drag vehicle that will make mulitple passes down the 1/4-mile.Both schools will attempt to build the badest and fastest 1320 dragster. The two schools will have 12-weeks to complete their speed machines. The vehicles will be top secret until they are unvailed at the track on race day. There are no rules or limitations the sky is the limit. Professional drivers will be driving the vehicles.In the show's first season, the winning car hit 145 mph with an e.t. of 9.16!Truckin' will be following as the schools begin building their 1/4-mile screamers.Stay Tuned......Bob Ryder
