The Scouting Report
As the dog days of summer wear on in Chicago, the Hollywood Casino Joliet Route 66 Classic chills the scorching pavement with a nostalgia-inducing showcase of the coolest vintage cars. A parade of early dragsters and old-school hot rods fills Route 66 Raceway for the all-day event, including Slingshot dragsters, gassers, and Nostalgia Pro Stock cars that harken back to the days when engines ran on malted milkshakes. As adults revel in the automotive sights of their childhood, kids can frolic in a Kids Club area with a bounce house, face painting, and other games.
