ADDISON – A pair of Addison Trail High School juniors won a scholarship at the National Edelbrock OTC Carburetor Challenge.

Tom Baughman and Adrian Villarreal took third place during the Feb. 22 competition.

They had to disassemble, rebuild and reassemble an Edelbrock racing carburetor as quickly as possible. The carburetor was then checked for accuracy. If it was incorrect, the students were disqualified.

Baughman and Villarreal completed the task in about eight minutes, and each earned a $3,000 scholarship.
