Vincent Mariano, of the SPHS Solar Knights solar race car team out of South Plantation High School in Plantation, Florida, wrote in to ask us why we haven’t written anything about the Dell-Winston solar car challenge currently underway at the Texas Motor Speedway. Because we hadn’t heard from you yet, Vincent! Thanks, and good luck in the race.

The top-most picture is of the racing teams at the event. The other pictures are of the Solar Knights’ vehicle. The first day of racing was yesterday, with races running through Friday. The Solar Knights placed third in last year’s competition.

Vincent: make sure to write back and tell us how you guy’s did.
