Default 2009 Team Checkpoint Chitown Shootout

The 2009 Team Checkpoint Chitown Shootout will be held March 7th - 8th at Leisure Hours Raceway in Joliet, IL

Open practice will be Friday March 6th

2008 saw some cool new additions to the race program to make it more exciting and fun. 2009 plans have even more new things added to make this one of the funniest races of the year!

I will post all the details after the first of the year.

Will there be a later start time on sat this year. Some of us work nights and cant make it for practice on fri. That kept me away last year, and I dont want to miss out this year. IT's always a great time.
