This past weekend, NMC students placed third in the 42nd annual Winter Baja endurance race competition at Michigan Technological University in Houghton. Competition was stiff, with the largest participant field since 1981.

Brutally cold conditions caused catastrophic failures for many competitors throughout the day, but NMC’s dedicated faculty and staff provided the students with an engaging experiential learning opportunity. 

NMC was the only community college and the only non-engineering group that competed. Areas of study represented on the team were Automotive Technology, Welding, Engineering and Business.

Watch the Winter Baja here.
