Although the NDRL, after experiencing their demise last summer, is no longer with us, R.C. Whitwell has not gone anywhere as he’s returned to Tucson again to compete in the Wild West Shootout. After failing to qualify for the main last evening, Whitwell will give it another go tonight as the 50+ car field will put on a show for $5,000.
