With students enjoying summer vacation, school buses have stopped transporting children to and from school. However, the bright yellow behemoths will be back in action Tuesday night, July 15, during round six of the 10-week Summer Shootout Series at Lowe¿s Motor Speedway.

For the second time this year, wild-and-wacky School Bus racing highlights the Summer Shootout card. The eight-lap race on Lowe¿s Motor Speedway¿s frontstretch quarter-mile oval will feature local radio and television personalities, as well as Lug Nut¿the World¿s Fastest Mascot.

Mr. Bill, the afternoon disc jockey on Charlotte radio station WRFX 99.7 The Fox, hopes to repeat his June 24 performance and post his second School Bus victory of the season. A veteran Summer Shootout Series competitor, Mr. Bill has several years of Legends Car experience as well as victories in two of the three School Bus races last season.

In addition to the School Bus spectacular, a full slate of Legends Car, Bandolero and Thunder Roadster racing is on tap with more than 170 cars expected to pack the pit area.

Adult tickets for the Summer Shootout, which runs each Tuesday night through Aug. 12, are just $5 with children 6-12 admitted for $3 and kids under 6 free. Tickets are available in advance from the speedway ticket office at 1-800-455-FANS or at Gates 4 and 5A the night of the event. Parking is free.

pectator gates open at 5 p.m. with preliminary action at 5:30 pm. Feature racing begins at 7:30 p.m. EDITOR¿S NOTE: 300-dpi images from previous school bus races to accompany this release can be downloaded from: www.charlottemotorspeedway.com/logos/images/bus1.jpg www.charlottemotorspeedway.com/logos/images/bus2.jpg www.charlottemotorspeedway.com/logos/images/bus3.jpg Please credit: (Lowe¿s Motor Speedway Photo by Harold Hinson)
