The competition among selected students from area high schools with automotive programs consisted of testing through a variety of scenarios one would find in an automotive repair setting such as alignment issues, no start, looking up service information, confirming customer complaint and diagnostic process, investigating check engine light and live data, multi-point inspection, and a 50-question ASE style test.

Training sessions for students not participating in the skills challenge were provided by Snap-On, NAPA, and FCA Mopar Cap Fiat Chrysler Corp, AutoZone, and Technician Academy. Lunch was sponsored by Kenny Kent Toyota.
