Podium1 Motoplex, 2921 Sunset Trail, in Charlestown, Indiana

College students will converge Sept. 28 for some Saturday night racing fun that will also test their stamina and design skills during the Midnight Mayhem competition that University of Louisville students organize for mini-racers.

More than 20 teams bringing 50-plus cars from universities across the United States.

Teams will drive four-wheel, off-road vehicles called Baja SAE racers in the four-hour endurance race; the vehicle completing the most laps wins.

Drivers can switch out when they need to refuel the student-designed vehicles, which use 10-horsepower stock engines and fuel tanks.

Spectator admission is $10, and the track opens at 2 p.m.
