WB Summer Shootout at The Redline Rumble August 18 - 19

The 'Summer Shootout' was the 6th event of the WB season. It was Round 4 of the Wild Bunch Series & Spirit of Nostalgia Challenge Series Round 6. The weather was cloudy with a headwind for much of the weekend, though there were some sunny spells. We did get 3 full rounds of racing in during Sunday, so a really good day. Well done and big thanks to all the hard working track crew and marshals and officials. There was a field of 22 Wild Bunch cars participating: 7 Altereds, 13 Slingshots, a Funny Car and a Rear-engined dragster.
