The 2013 running of the High Plains ElectroRally — where student driving teams see whose electric car design can make the most laps in an hour — will be Sept. 26 at Frontier Park West.

The teams, primarily from high schools across the state, race full-size electric cars of their own design and construction.

The race is sponsored by Fort Hays State University’s Institute of Applied Science, NCK Technical College, Midwest Energy, Sunflower Electric Power Corp. and Western Electric Co-op.

Volunteers begin setting up the quarter-mile road course, marking the way with hay bales and orange road cones, in Frontier Park at 6:30 a.m. Registration opens at 7 a.m.

So far, said race coordinator Joe Chretien, associate professor of applied technology at FHSU, 10 schools have registered, including such perennial participants as Hays High School, Hoisington High School, Scott City High School, Wheatland High School in Grainfield, Ulysses High School and Dighton High School.
