TULSA, Okla. (December 22, 2013) Just as Christmas dinner is digested and the presents are counted, over 500 teams will begin the trek to Tulsa and the River Spirit Expo Center for the 29th Speedway Motors Tulsa Shootout.

With a of potential 150 entries in addition to the already 758 on the scheduled December 31 move-in day, an assortment of 422 drivers from across the United States and Canada have already made their bid for the Golden Driller known with Oklahoma sending the greatest number so far at 266. Broken Arrow stands out of the Oklahoma municipalities represented with 46 from the Tulsa suburb.

Of the reigning 2013 champions, five have entered so far.

Chris Cochran, who topped “A” Class Non-Wing, will pull double-duty in “A” Class Wing and Non-Wing.

Chris Andrews will not seek to defend in victory in Outlaw Non-Wing, but instead will move into “A” Class Winged for the 2014 Tulsa Shootout.

Jadon Rodgers took the Golden Driller for Junior Sprints home in the 2013 Tulsa Shootout. The young Indiana shoe will move to two classes in 2014, taking the wheel in Restricted “A” Class in addition to defending his Junior Sprint victory one year ago.

Tulsa’s Brian McClelland will again take part in the ECOtec Midgets as a warm up to the Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals.

Restricted “A” Class will potentially have a new champion as Danhe Lynn McKay advances to the “A” Class Winged ranks for a shot at another Golden Driller.

Remaining to be seen, Michael Dicely captured the 1,200cc victory in 2013. Michael Faccinto, who was victorious in “A” Class competition, has yet to enter as well as Heath Duinkerken who was the champion for the Outlaw division. Even in he’s not racing the Shootout, Duinkerken is confirmed for his first trip as a drive in the Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire in the Steve Watt Enterprises No. 81.

One champion that is scheduled to be in attendance is former Shootout Champion, and current Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals champion Kevin Swindell. Details as to which classes the Tennessee driver will be competing in remain to be seen.
