Addison Trail students rev their engines for Ford/AAA competition
ADDISON – Engines roar, arms are speckled with cuts and hands are covered with black, slippery oil. This is automotive repair.
Addison Trail High School seniors Ashten Reich and Roman Flores have trained every day at 7 a.m. during lunch breaks and after school for a month, finding the glitches their auto shop teacher Keith Santini has placed under the hood and in the controls of a black Ford Explorer. Reich and Flores have minutes to fix the problems in the car, get it running and drive a lap around the parking lot.
Reich, Flores and Santini were practicing to represent Illinois in the national Ford/AAA Student Auto Skills Competition, which took place this week in Dearborn, Mich. The team finished fourth in the national competition.
