HANOVER, Pa., Nov. 24 — The two support vehicles sitting side by side in the pits at the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series race at the Action Track in Terre Haute, Ind., in September told the story. At the right was a gleaming, state-of-the-art Bad Boys Buggy, equipped with all sorts of things that Donny Schatz, the series' eventual champion, and his Tony Stewart Racing crew might need. On the left was a rather shabby golf cart, held together primarily by high hopes.
"Will this start?" asked Trevor Cook, a young mechanic who was helping Shark Racing at Terre Haute. Obviously it hadn't started sometime recently. "Well, yes, it CAN start," replied Bobby Allen. The 70-year-old owner of Shark Racing is a member of the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame, one of the original outlaw drivers, and a born optimist.

3-WAY TITLE FIGHT BETWEEN ABREU, BELL, HINES ON TAP THURSDAY IN "TURKEY NIGHT GRAND PRIX; HAGEN, BELL & HINES SHARE "WESTERN WORLD" SPOTLIGHT
Only 36 points separate the top-three drivers in USAC's Honda National Midget Series entering Thursday night's 74th "Turkey Night Grand Prix" at Perris (Calif.) Auto Speedway.
Combatants Rico Abreu, Christopher Bell and Tracy Hines all have significant objectives as they chase the championship going into the season finale. Ronnie Gardner of Norco, Calif. is set to celebrate his second consecutive Honda USAC Western Midget crown at Perris.
Abreu, of Rutherford, Calif., eyes his initial USAC National title, while teammate Bell, of Norman, Okla., is seeking his second in a row. Hines, of New Castle, Ind., could enter the prestigious USAC "Triple Crown" list by claiming his first National Midget crown. Bell trails Abreu by 26 points and Hines stands just 36 back of the leader.
For the fifth time in the last six years, and the sixth time in his career, Thomasville's Greg Hodnett has won the overall Central Pennsylvania Sprint Car Point Series championship.
Hodnett won the series crown first in 2003 when there was no series sponsor. His next two titles came in 2009 and 2010 under the Speed Dawg banner. Speedway Motors took over sponsorship in 2011, when Hodnett won his fourth title, and Champion Racing Oil joined Speedway Motors as title sponsor in 2012 when Hodnett got his fifth title. Now Hodnett has again won the Speedway Motors/Champion Racing Oil title this season.
Hodnett joined Michael Heffner's racing team this season, with Ryan Hand as the team mechanic. Hodnett finished in the top 10 in 55 of the series races, scoring 11 wins. He won three times each at Williams Grove and Port Royal, twice at Grandview and once each at Susquehanna, Selinsgrove and Hagerstown.
Eighteen year old Brad Franks successfully completed his first year in 360 sprint cars and with URC in 2014. Franks of Collegeville, PA will be URC's 2014 Rookie of the Year and for that accomplishment, he will receive a Simpson helmet. In just his first season of 360 sprint car racing, Brad finished thirteenth in the 2014 URC point standings.
"It was a great first year for us and we learned so much on what is often a long learning curve", said Franks. "What it comes down to is being smooth on the track and sometimes, you have to go slower to be faster", added Franks.

PARNELLI JONES SERVES AS "GRAND MARSHAL"
USAC championships will be on the line Thursday night when one of America's most traditional and revered motorsport events takes to Perris (Calif.) Auto Speedway. The Annual "Turkey Night Grand Prix" marks the 74th running of the race which debuted in Los Angeles back in 1934 and has been won by many of the sport's biggest names.
Parnelli Jones, the 1963 Indianapolis 500 winner and two-time (1964 & 1966) Turkey Night champ, will serve as the "Grand Marshal" for what promises again to be one of the signature events of the racing season. Defending champion Dave Darland is among three former winners expected to compete in this year's 98-lap classic. Darland won the 2007 classic at Irwindale (Calif.) Speedway and last year's win at Perris made him the only driver ever to win the race on pavement and dirt.

Pennsylvania based team notches podium finish in points; adds wins, top-5's and top-10's
TELFORD, PA. - November 20, 2014 - When it's all said and done, few challenges in sports can match that of competing on the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series tour.
"Running the Outlaw circuit is one of the most fun, yet difficult things I think you can ever do," said Paul McMahan, driver of the Bairs Tree Service/Nyce Crete & Landis Block & Concrete/All Star Performance sponsored machine. "Between the travel, the competition and the general grind of racing over 90 nights a year, this series will wear you down. Plain and simple. The flip side of that is the fact that if you walk up and down the pits at any of our races and ask anyone, this is circuit they want to be on. This is where they want to be. This is where the best of the best come to race. We all want to be beat the best. That's why we keep coming back each and every year."
