DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) -- Two Wisconsin high schoolers are taking home the title of best student auto technicians in the nation.

Justin Bublitz and Colt Morris from Grafton High School won the Ford/AAA Student Auto Skills contest on Tuesday.

The suburban Milwaukee boys competed against two-person teams of high school juniors and seniors. Each team represented its state during the 65th annual event at Ford Motor Co.'s world headquarters in Dearborn.

The contestants raced the clock and each other to correctly diagnose problems within a car and then provided the fix.

The idea is to encourage students to continue their educations and pursue careers in the automotive service industry.

Bublitz and Morris won scholarships and will get an opportunity to shadow the pit crew of NASCAR driver Trevor Bayne later in the season.
