Chi-Town Tear Down Pit Crew Competition
Prairie State College has been a participant in the Chi-Town Tear Down Pit Crew Competition. The competition brings together students from across region to compete in two categories: the high school pit crew and the college/tech school. The event is held annually at the World of Wheels Custom Car Show.
Each team consists of four participants and an alternate representing their school. Each high school and college team disassembled and rebuilt a V-6 dual overhead-cam Ford engine. All the teams were timed and also graded on the overall accuracy of the rebuild.
