CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- It’s back at the Charlotte Motor Speedway---the Jack in the Box Summer Shootout Series.
Tuesday night will be the 21st season of competition, with more than 150 Legend Cars and Bandoleros on the front stretch quarter-mile oval.
The highlight of the evening will be the annual Principal School Bus race. Seven area principals will be competing against each other to try to win this year’s “gold belt."
Darin Roberts, from Furr Elementary School, has won the past two years and is going for the Triple Crown!
Other competitors in the school bus race are Chuck Borders, principal at Rocky River Elementary School; James Carroll, principal at Hickory Ridge Middle School; Adam Auerbach, principal at Wolf Meadow Elementary School; Tim Farrar, principal at Northwest Cabarrus Middle School; Kevin Senter, principal at Cabarrus Charter Academy; and Tripp Aldredge, principal at Harris Road Middle School.
This morning on Larry’s Look, Darin joined us to talk about the event, and how he is looking forward to taking-on the six other principals.
“It’s a lot of fun. I enjoy seeing the families come out with all the kids rooting us on. We like to go by the name “Team Furr” here. We have a team atmosphere so I really enjoy all the support that everyone gives us,” said Roberts. “It’s always a fun race against the other principals and we really have a fun time out there."
