Power of DC

The Power of DC is an annual racing event. This year it took place in Hagerstown, Maryland (June 5-6) and what attracts car enthusiasts to this event is pure electric! Production electric vehicles, some modified, batteries, and racing all in one. It's one of the best events for electric and hybrid autocross along with the NEDRA drag race. Check out Don Auker's electric Tesla vs Shawn Lawless' (OBS-Orange Blossom Special) electric junior dragster driven by Chip Gribben in 2009. While the goal is to win and beat the clock, the spectators appreciate the more quite sound of the zooming engines.
