Chad Robertson drives his green dragster in the Super Pro category Saturday during the Lewistown Raceway’s National Open weekend. Racers came from Washington, Wyoming, Idaho, all over Montana and even Canada to race on Montana’s oldest track. Raceway spokesperson Nicole McGimpsey said it was a good turnout despite unfavorable weather.

Lewistown Raceway had a wild weekend of racing but carried through as up to 70 cars took to the track throughout the weekend for their National Open.
