ITE Employee Wins Award at Red Bull Soapbox Race

Congratulations to Josh Basler and his team, the Half-Astronauts, on winning the “People’s Choice Award” this past weekend at the Red Bull Soapbox Race! Josh, a project engineer for ITE, and his four teammates competed against 46 teams in front of nearly 40,000 spectators in Cincinnati.

Teams not only built their soapbox racer from scratch, but drove their design down the 1,500 foot long track. While the Half-Astronauts did not take a spot on the podium at the end of the day, they did walk away with the “People’s Choice Award” for their unique Red Bull inspired soapbox design.
