Winning the state title is not new to Chris. He competed and previously won two championships in 2007 and 2008, and again this year, 2012.

The state and national competitions consist of a written test as well as a timed, hands-on test where the mechanics have to trouble-shoot, diagnose, and repair the problem. Speed and accuracy are part of the combined score in determining the final winner.
