High school Solar Car Challenge kicks off Monday

Computer giant Dell and the Winston School in Dallas, Texas will fire up a fuel-free race at Texas Motor Speedway next week - the 11th annual Dell-Winston School Solar Car Challenge. Competing cars have been designed and built by 18 high school race teams from the U.S., India and Puerto Rico.

The Solar Car Challenge alternates between closed course events at Texas Motor Speedway and cross-country races, with next year's event heading from Round Rock, Texas to New York. This is the fifth year that Dell has been the event's headline sponsor.

Videos and pictures of last year's cross-country event are at the challenge website, where you can also follow this year's competition.
