Sunday was the annual Summit Racing Jr. Drag Racing League Challenge and with the generous support from Mike Halsey of Affordable Floors & Blinds, Vern Schmidt, Mike Thomas, Lance Duell, Joey Rolfe, and Bumper to Bumper Collision, Body & Mechanical Service Center we were able to post a $700 purse for our junior racers to pursue.
