The Mileage Challenge is where student-built cars compete to see who can complete a track route using the least amount of energy. There are two vehicle classes: Prototype and Urban Concept.

Successful Urban Concept teams then have the opportunity to compete in the Regional Championship race, the finale of the event. Teams are given an energy handicap based on their Regional Mileage Challenge competition result. They have to match the proven energy efficiency of the car with strategy, skill and speed in a race to cross the finish line first without running out of energy. The winner is awarded the title of Americas Regional Champion 2020.

The first six European teams over the line qualify to go to the Shell Eco-marathon World Championship event in Beijing, China, from 14 September 2020.

2019 Off-track Winners
Content

Technical Innovation Award sponsored by Southwest Research Institute

BYU SMV, Brigham Young University implemented a system to quickly optimize the air-fuel ratio over a short engine burn time. The optimization is meant to achieve a better fuel economy and reduce harmful emissions. 

Most Innovative Hydrogen Newcomer Award sponsored by Linde

Ualberta EcoCar Prototype Team, University of Alberta were awarded this off-track award for the customized controller built for their hydrogen fuel cell powered vehicle.

Communications Award

LA Tech EcoCar, Louisiana Tech University submitted an integrated communication plan with clear objectives, audience and content strategy, multi-channel tactics and measurable analytics. 

Vehicle Design Award for Prototype

Pato a Jato, Universidade Tecnológica Federal do Paraná used an eco-friendly plant-based resin and biodegradable material made with a 3D printer. The car is painted yellow, which was chosen as it reflects light better than darks colors, which decreases the internal temperature. 

Vehicle Design Award for UrbanConcept

LA Tech EcoCar, Louisiana Tech University pushed the envelope in design. They paid attention to detail including mounted LED lights inside the body of the car for a sleeker and more aerodynamic look. 

Safety Award

Texas A&M had a high-quality submission and went into great detail on how they knew their car and driver were safe. Ultimately, they chose driver safety over and above doing well on the track and chose not to take an additional risk to complete a last attempt. 

Perseverance and Spirit of the Event Award

EEV at Sac State, California State University, Sacramento. This team is organized, funded and managed entirely by students with minimal support from the school. The team includes students from diverse engineering disciplines with a clear delineation of roles and a remarkable ethic of cooperation.
