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.
