Nelson Family Dominates at Twin City Raceway

MONROE, La.Twin City Raceway completed their Turkey Day Shootout over the Thanksgiving weekend.  The race schedule and purse were moved around due to weather related issues but they were able to complete the event as scheduled.

The revised race weekend included a $20K on Saturday and a $10K on Sunday in Super Pro while the No Electronics racers competed for $5K each day.

The father and daughter team of Bart Nelson and Blair McNutt ruled the main event on Saturday as both of the Houston, Texas racers found themselves in the winner’s circle.  Bart captured the biggest prize of the weekend in winning Super Pro for a $20,000 payday.  Blair matched her dad stride for stride by driving her Camaro to the Street class victory.

Other notable winners included Wes Neely taking the No Electronics win on Saturday and AJ Ashe taking the $10K Super Pro win on Sunday.
