(KYTX) - The Bullard High School Solar Team began their race this morning from Justin to Snyder, Texas. The team started off strong and in 1st place.
They had to make several stops after their tires kept going flat from the heat from the road. After 4 flats and 2 hours wasted on fixing the tires, they were off again traveling 45-60mph.
''As a first time team we learned and we are now am even better team. The car drove better than ever other then the tire problems," says one of the team members.
The team does not know what place they ended the day with because they are waiting for the judges to calculate the miles from all the other teams, but they will keep us updated via Facebook.
Tomorrow they will begin a race from Snyder to Carlsbad.
