2017 Shakedown at the Summit Photos and Highlights

Three days of glorious early fall weather led to hot times at the 15th Annual Shakedown at the Summit. A total purse of $155,000 was up for grabs to the competitors in the 7 categories present. Ohio’s John DeCerbo took home the lion’s share of 40 grand by winning the pro-mod class. The Summit Motorsports Park crew and Kurt Johnson of Total Venue Concepts battled lots of sun and high track temperatures all weekend to provide a great surface. Car counts were up over previous years as well, with over 130 open comp cars and 50 top sportsman cars vying for one of 32 spots.

Here’s the results and photo highlights by Dave Oakes.
