TULSA, Okla. (December 29, 2004) -- The racing stars of the future will take to the clay inside the Tulsa Expo Center this weekend for the 20th Anniversary of the Tulsa Shootout presented by Brodix.

Approximately 1,200 entries from 23 states across the nation, from California to Connecticut and all points in between, have flocked to Tulsa this weekend for racing action in Micros, Karts and Quads.

A number of drivers will be on hand to defend 2004 Tulsa Shootout titles, including Micro racers Rodney Stealy (600cc Multis), Brady Bacon (A Class) and Ronnie James (Non-Wing). 2004 Junior Sprint winner Dustin Rhodes has graduated to the Restricted "A" Class, while 2004 Restricted "A" winner Ben Dover shoots for two in a row.
