The Race is On

Wheatland Sponsors ElectroRally Youth

As part of our commitment to communities throughout our service area, Wheatland Electric sponsors the ElectroRally program, Wheatland sponsors teams from high schools in Scott City and Great Bend who build electric and solar powered cars and compete to see who can complete the most laps in an hour.  Strategy is as important as speed-drive fast and do as many laps or go slower, conserve battery and last the whole race.

Students from Scott Community High School are in the midst of crafting an electric car for the 2016 spring racing season.  Leonel Castillo, MacKayla Koehn, Karlee Logan, Baron Strine, and Nancy Wiebe make up the Scott Community High School team. 

Chuck Ellis, an Art Teacher at Scott Community High School has been overseeing the electric-car program since the late 90s.  Ellis has a racing and design background which is what interested him in the program.  Much of the success of SCHS’s program can be attributed to his dedication to the program.
