Phil Parkinson’s side found themselves 4-1 down after Jake Young and Charlie Austin gave the visitors a two-goal lead.
Jake Bickerstaff pulled one back for the Welsh side but Daniel Kemp and a second from Young meant that Wrexham were down three goals at half-time.
However, the hosts came out with a point to prove in the second half and made it 4-3 after Elliot Lee and James Jones netted.
Despite this, they were pegged back once again as Kemp restored Swindon’s two-goal lead.
It looked like the visitors would leave with all three points as they kept their two-goal advantage heading into added time before Wrexham pulled off the incredible comeback.
Jones netted his second goal in the 92nd minute to give the hosts hope before Lee scored in the 96th minute to rescue the point for his side.
Speaking after the match, Parkinson praised his side as he said: ‘The lads were never ever giving in. If you put on a Wrexham shirt that’s a requirement. But equally, we’ve got to be honest with ourselves. We need to do better.’
Reynolds and McElhenney will be hoping for less drama in future games as they look to climb the Football League with Wrexham following their promotion last season.
