The Charlotte Motor Speedway hosts the Summer Shootout Series every Tuesday night through the end of the month.  There’s a full program of Legends Car and Bandolero racing.  There are also school bus races and a huge Fireworks Extravaganza Night!  Racing action takes place under the lights on the quarter-mile oval located on the speedway's front straightaway.

Tonight there’s a very special feature: the Little Luggies 600 Power Wheels Race.  Kids 4 to 7 will be racing their own power wheels around the quarter mile track.  The winner gets a $100 gift card from Toys-R-Us and a big trophy! 

This morning on Larry’s Look, one of the competitors came by the station with his power wheel.  Reeves Byrd is 4 years old and he and his dad Christian were in our parking lot to talk about the big event tonight.  Christian even gave us a preview of his driving skills.
