ChumpCar's events at Road Atlanta have typically drawn a large field full of very competitive teams. Watch the Back Woods Racing #7 Ford Mustang slice through dense traffic as it runs around the 2.54-mile, 12-turn road course. Much of the video includes a good dice with a previous Road Atlanta Chump winner, the BoomPowSurprise #95 Ford Probe GT.
