Summer roars into action at Charlotte Motor Speedway with back-to-back nights of racing on Monday and Tuesday, June 10 and 11, as Legend Cars and Bandoleros take the 2024 Cook Out Summer Shootout green flag.

For eight-straight weeks, America's Home for Racing will see over 150 drivers from across North America tackle the quarter-mile that has served as hallowed asphalt for hobby and career racers for over 30 years. 

Five of the six 2023 Cook Out Summer Shootout Champions return to defend their title and fight for another championship belt! Mark Green looks to defend his Masters Division title and Alex McCollum returns to race for another Pro Division Championship. Joining McCollum in the Pro Division is 2023 Semi-Pro Division Summer Shootout Champion, George Phillips. Both Bandolero Division champions from the 2023 Summer Shootout, Ben Morabito (Outlaws) and LaQuan McCoy (Bandits), have both graduated to the Legend Car Young Lions Division and will duel 17 other drivers for the coveted belt.

Making his Legend Car return is USLCI Alum, driver of the no. 23 23XI Racing Toyota in the NASCAR Cup Series, Bubba Wallace. He will pilot the no. 76 Legend Car in the Pro Division facing off against McCollum, Phillips, Sean Hingorani, Jake Bollman, Joel Smith, Cameron Bolin, and more weekly as they each put the pedal to the metal chasing victories and the top step of the championship podium.
