Mark Galloway Shootout Story, List of Winners
In the event’s short history, six-time track champion Naima Lang is the only rider to have multiple victories at the event.
At the inaugural event of the Mark Galloway Shootout in 2011, Lang took home a checkered flag, but it would be another decade before Lang finally added a second race win to his resume. Lang’s win in 2021 also marked the shootout’s official return after it was canceled in 2020 amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Outside of Lang, numerous accomplished short track competitors have visited Victory Lane in the Mark Galloway Shootout. Tyler Tanner, who has 14 career starts in the Truck Series, won the race in 2014. Former West Series competitor Gracin Raz previously clinched a win in 2019.
The battle is expected to be intense when the green flag flies on Saturday, but everyone will be chasing Lang as they seek their third win of the race.
