TULSA, Okla. – Just as Christmas dinner is digested and the presents are counted, more than 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.
