RACE PREVIEW

Traditionally the Turkey 250 has been used as a tune-up for December's Snowball 500, but this year could be different. While the Snowball 500 will continue on its traditional venue, the Buck Track Banzai, the Turkey will move over to the Slot Car Club Of The Twin Tiers' new track - the Bowman road course. The Bowman will place a higher emphasis on horsepower than the Buck and, if the computer scoring system is in place on time, this will be the first event on the track.

Ryan Hendrickson enters the Turkey 250 as the favorite to defend his title. The strongest challenge to Ryan's supremacy will most likely be from his father, Dave. Kevin Hendrickson and Gary Weber cannot be counted out. Scott Udave could surprise if the race is held on the faster Bowman.
