Can you build a fast car for under $2000? The Grassroots Motorsports $2000 Challenge Presented by Tire Rack proves you can. But can you build a museum-quality piece for that amount, too?

Apparently so, as Wreck Racing’s 2001 Chevrolet S-10, which finished second in the 2022 Grassroots Motorsports $2000 Challenge, will be on display at the Savoy Automobile Museum.

The S-10 will be part of a special exhibit featuring vehicles built by the Georgia Tech Student Competition Center.

  • 2001 Chevrolet S-10 Xtreme
  • 2012 Solar Racing SJ-1
  • 2022 FSAE GTMS 70
  • 2022 HyTech Racing FSAE EV HT06
  • 2022 Off-Road OR-7 Resilience

The exhibit runs through August 27, 2023.

Good for the whole Wreck Racing team! They have put together some impressive cars over the years, while getting that "real world" education.  That should be an interesting museum exhibit.
