On the West Coast at the Edelbrock Car Show, 16 teams competed on the cold and rainy day. Of those, three new teams qualified for the Dual National Championship held at the SEMA and PRI Shows later this year by disassembling and then reassembling a small-block Chevrolet engine in less than 33 minutes, which includes penalties.

Team Performance Quotient from Loara High School out of Anaheim, CA qualified with a time of 32:14. Team FAST from Rancho Alamitos High School of Garden Grove, CA had a time of 30:02. Team Comp Cams, Calabasas High School out of Calabasas, CA made it to the Dual National Championship with the time of 25:05.

Team Hooker Blackheart, a new team participating in their first HROT event from North Boone High School, Poplar Grove, IL qualified in fifth place with the time of 30:31.

Coming in first place was Team Speed Pro, Belvidere North High School from Belvidere, IL, with a time of 20:57. Belvidere has participated in the HROT program since its inception back in 2008.
