Manufacturing and engineering students at Grafton High School continued a high-powered tradition this spring when they designed and built a formula race car that was tested at Road America in Elkhart Lake. The students, taught by Mike Dodge, put their vehicle on the track in late April against cars built by other Wisconsin schools as part of the Formula High School Motorsports Program. Grafton students also built a modified stock car. Joining Jeffrey Frankard as he sat behind the wheel of the formula car were (clockwise from lower left) D.J. Underwood, Cameron Scheel, Dodge, Cory Bucholz, Donald Volkman, Logan Klug and Chad Dickmann. Dodge said the main goal of the program is not to have the fastest cars but to teach students “to take an idea and learn from it” as they combine preparation, teamwork and classroom applications in creating reliable vehicles. Corporate donations defray the cost of Formula High School projects, which allow students interested in motorsports, engineering and technology to showcase their skills.  Photo by Sam Arendt
