The UNC Charlotte Baja SAE team finished 40th out of about 100 teams at the competition on Pittsburg State campus last week.

The 49er finished 11th in the sled pull event, 21st in the acceleration event, 31st in the maneuverability event, and 54th in the suspension event.

The weather did play a big factor in these events as it was wet and muddy in the morning, but dried up and was hot and dusty in the afternoon. The team finished 55th in the endurance event, where a broken drive shaft ended their day early.
