Racing the sun
Appalachian’s Team Sunergy is racing their solar vehicle, Apperion, in the American Solar Challenge. The eight-day, 1,975 mile road course travels through seven states from Brecksville, Ohio, to Hot Springs, S.D. To celebrate the National Park Service Centennial, race organizers have created a route that will include stage checkpoints at nine national parks, historic sites or partner properties throughout the Midwest. Race begins Saturday, July 30.
