The Genuine Hotrod Hardware Pedal Car Challenge is a contest for high school and trade school students who live near each show venue. Genuine Hotrod Hardware supplies the replica pedal cars; the finished cars are judged for creativity, craftsmanship, overall appearance, and attention to detail. Awards are presented for first-, second-, and third-place entries. The pedal cars are auctioned off during each shows’ charity program, with the proceeds going to each school’s automotive program.
Butler Tech/D. Russel Lee High School won the inaugural Pedal Car Challenge at the Cincinnati Cavalcade of Customs. Other winners to date are:
- Parkway West Vo-Tech, Pittsburgh World of Wheels
- North West Technical School Kansas City World of Wheels
- McKenzie Center for Innovation & Technology, Indianapolis World of Wheels
The final Pedal Car Challenges will be held at the Chicago World of Wheels, March 1-3 and the Detroit AutoRama, March 8-10.
