Supermileage Team motors to Detroit

The Northern Illinois University football team isn’t the only team to compete for championships in Detroit.

From April 10 to 12, the NIU Supermileage Team will compete in the Shell Eco-marathon Americas 2015, a global program that challenges high school and college student teams to design, build and test the most energy-efficient vehicles.
