The NIU Supermileage Team, which recently took third in the world and second in the United States at the SAE Supermileage Competition in Marshall, Mich., is doing a “victory lap” of sorts in Chicago.

Team members Lindsey Dodis, Kevin Kuebrich, Christian McAdoo and Russell Fordyce appeared on Fox 32’s Good Day Chicago Wednesday morning to talk about their team, the supermileage vehicle and their appearance with Jay Leno in a Shell commercial.

They said if one was to fill the Stanley Cup with fuel, that fuel could be used to power the Huskie Rocket roughly from Chicago to Tampa and back.

The team will also be recognized at U.S. Cellular Field Wednesday evening as part of the ceremonial first pitch activities at the White Sox game vs. Pittsburgh on NIU Night. The supermileage vehicle and NIU’s formula car will be on display outside the ballpark, and the 7 p.m. game will also feature the NIU Pep Band performing the national anthem.
