Challenge X: the theme song

In May, 2004 Challenge X started a competition involving 17 university teams from the United States and Canada to improve fuel economy and lower emissions. When the challenge started the price of gasoline was $206.4. By the time Challenge X was over the price of gasoline was $379.1.

After 4 years, long nights and copious amounts of red bull, seventeen universities finished Challenge X.

Here is the theme song that the group put together to reflect some of the fun they did have.

These kids spent waaay too much time together. And if you think they were bad, watch the adults. :)
