The Race: The 8th Annual Turkey 250

When: Saturday November 29, 2008

Location: The Slot Car Club of the Twin Tiers, 2117C Grand Central Ave., Horseheads, NY

The Track: The Bowman Grand Champion. 83.5', 18 turns

The Cars: Aurora Thunderjets run to SCCOTTT Super Stock rules, (similar to Fray or VHORS.) Contact for complete rules.

Race History: Dave Hendrickson has won two consecutive Turkey 250s to add to his 2004 victory. Ryan Hendrickson won the race in 2005. Frank Spena Jr. won the first three Turkey 250s.

The Turkey 250 serves as the final and most significant warmup for the legendary Snowball 500 in December. The race is also Round 1 of the SCCOTTT T-Jet Championship series, which is made up of the Major T-Jet races held over the winter at SCCOTTT.

Ryan Hendrickson enters the 2008 Turkey 250 as the favorite after a record-setting performance in the Pumpkin 250 in October. It could be a very different story if his father, Dave, pulls his top cars out of the race box. Kevin Hendrickson has a shot at his older brother, but he will have to raise his game to top him. Ernie Langford and Scott Udave have shown very good speed of late and could rise to the challenge.

SCCOTTT's Friday Night 1/32 Racing Series runs every Friday evening with races beginning at 7:00 PM. Current classes are World Sportscar Championship, (WSC,) Non-Magnet Open and 1/24 Le Mans. Call or e-mail for rules.
