Earlier this month, the Oregon State’s Beaver Racing team beat out nearly 100 other university teams to take first at the Baja SAE first event of 2019 hosted at Tennessee Tech.

In addition to the overall win, Oregon State received first place awards for their sales presentation, suspension, endurance, and overall dynamics.

“I’m very proud of this team and the tremendous effort they’ve put in,” said Bob Paasch, professor of mechanical engineering and the team’s advisor. “I couldn’t be happier with how the car and everyone on the team performed.”
