A local car club recently gave the Santa Maria High School Race Team a $500 donation.

Lompoc-based Central Coast Streetrods, Inc., Treasurer Richard Bouman awarded the funds during a visit to the Saint garage.

“This will help us offset race costs, purchase instructional materials and supplies,’’ said Auto Shop Teacher and Race Team Advisor Matt Almaguer.

The team, which started in 2008, has about 14 members including one from RHS. It has two race cars and a dragster. The school’s auto program has more than 100 students.

In April, the team’s 1968 Camaro made it to the second round of eliminations during a drag race at Famoso Raceway near Bakersfield.
