Second Annual Starting Line Party Was All About the Race Fans
Route 66 Raceway's Second Annual Starting Line Party proved to be a night for the race fans. The exclusive, preseason fan event allowed fans to race down the dragstrip, enjoyed a rumbling cacklefest and met local NHRA Drag Racing stars Tony Schumacher, TJ Zizzo and Bob Bode. John Kernan of ESPN and RPM2Night.com served as the emcee for the event's Question & Answer session and also produced this video recap of the night's festivities.
