Penn College’s Baja SAE team practices on a test track at the college’s heavy equipment operations training site near Allenwood. After 17 years of racing, in 2022 the team captured the top spot at Baja SAE Tennessee Tech and Baja SAE Rochester, topping a 72-car field in Tennessee and 76 cars in Rochester to finish first in the grueling, four-hour endurance race, the events' marquee contest. The quarter-mile test track was built by students in heavy construction equipment technology majors to replicate rugged conditions the team faces at collegiate Baja competitions. The events are conducted by SAE International and attract top schools from around the globe.
