Green & McReynolds in Championship Chase
Green, son of veteran NASCAR Busch Series driver Mark Green, and McReynolds, son of former NASCAR crew chief and FOX television commentator Larry McReynolds, are separated by just 38 points after six races in the battle for the Cabarrus Family Medicine Bandolero Young Guns title.
Consistency has been the key for Green who leads the standings on the strength of six top-five finishes, including a victory in round two. McReynolds has won twice, but a mechanical problem and an accident resulted in two finishes outside the top 15.
But neither driver can afford to look over his shoulder as a mere 40 points separate the top-five competitors. Devon Haun stands third, one point behind McReynolds, while Jake Crum and Jordan Penninger are another point back in a tie for fourth.
Tuesday night¿s action will be pivotal in the title chase as the Cabarrus Family Medicine Bandolero Young Guns will run two main events. The first 20-lapper will be a make-up for the race that was rained out July 27.
A full slate of Legends Car, Bandolero and Thunder Roadster racing is on tap with nearly 160 race cars expected to jam the pit area. The Road Hawgs, the division designed to put the ¿stock¿ back into stock car racing, will make their final summer appearance.
The 10-week Hardee¿s Summer Shootout runs every Tuesday night through Aug. 17.
Admission is just $5 for adults. Children 6-12 are admitted for $3 and kids under 6 are free. Parking is free. Spectator gates open at 5 p.m. with preliminary action starting at 5:25. Feature racing begins at 7:30 p.m. and will conclude by 10:15.
