CSUF's Titan Formula SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) racing team took home second place in this past weekend's California Challenge, part of the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon. The competition was judged based on energy efficiency — how far the formula-style race cars could go on $1 worth of energy from any source.

First-place winner was Cal State Los Angeles, with UCI Epsilon placing third. Titan drivers were mechanical engineering students Bryan Humburg and Michael Crull. The team is working on designing and building a new race car to compete in next June's Formula SAE international competition in Nebraska.
