Come sit around the campfire and let us reel you into an evening of high-octane racing, that promises to leave everyone feeling like a happy camper… Scouts honor!


After seven rounds of Cook Out Summer Shootout action, Bandit racer Wyatt Coffey has been on a true scavenger hunt for gold. With only three more weeks to go, Coffey is the only driver across both Bandolero and Legends Car divisions that has tallied up five wins on the season. Picking up victories here in Charlotte and at Atlanta Motor Speedway’s Thursday Thunder, Coffey is in pursuit of earning his merit badge over the Bandits. 


Cook Out Summer Shootout is a 10-race showcase of speed among eight different divisions of Legend Cars and Bandoleros. Races are held each Tuesday night, with drivers accumulating points throughout the summer towards a season-ending championship.
