Cuesta College student headed to world automotive competition

Wrench-wielding college students from all over the world are setting their sites on the country of Brazil. That's because the country will host the world auto service competition in July, and the person representing the U.S. is from right here on the Central Coast.

When it comes to fixing cars, Cuesta College student Michael Mullen is the best of the best. Automotive professor John Stokes says that's why Mullen will head to Brazil next year to represent the U.S.

Mullen is no stranger to competition. He's ranked number one in the U.S. for college-level mechanics and brought home the gold in the world competition last year.

Before he heads to Brazil for this year's competition, he'll get a warm-up in Columbia, where he'll face competitors in the Pan America games. That includes automotive techs from Brazil, Argentina, Columbia, and Canada.
