Team Orion are reporting on the 2008 Chi-Town Shootout that was held at the beginning of March at the Leisure Hours Raceway in Joliet, IL. Racers from Michigan, Ohio, Illinois and Wisconsin all attended this annual event to race on the hi-traction clay track which allowed the racers to run slicks at the beginning of the day when the track was wet, then switch over to tires with a little more pin as the track started to dry out. Team Orion driver Chuck Berg was the man to beat in 2wd 19T buggy class, TQ’ing every round of qualifying to guarantee him the first spot on the grid for the main event. At the start of the tone, Berg shot off the line and after a couple laps he had stretched out a comfortable lead on the field. Chuck then went on and ran mistake free for the rest of the main winning by a considerable margin.
