The Scouting Report

As summer descends on Chicago, Burndown at Sundown! heats up the already scorching pavement when cars hurtle down the track at speeds approaching 300 mph. More than 450 rides converge upon Route 66 Raceway for the all-day event, including fire-breathing jet cars, nitro-burning dragsters, and Nostalgia Pro Stock cars that harken back to the days when engines ran on malted shakes. To go along with the historic theme, the day also features an appearance from the Shake, Rattle & Run '57 Chevy, which raced during indoor drags at Chicago Amphitheatre back in the early 1960s. Visitors can watch the action from either the air-conditioned skybox or the general-admission grandstands, which afford views of the track from several different vantage points.
