The Highland Shootout is one of my favorite events every year to cover.  I went as a kid and it has been awesome to see how it has grown and have a small part in helping select the lineup each year.  Matt Powers and his team did another tremendous job.  We will have wall to wall coverage all week from the event.  Start off with our recap of the day in Highland Shootout Notebook!
