GERMANTOWN, Tenn. – Kevin Swindell will be busy this weekend tackling a handful of classes during the 30th annual Speedway Motors Tulsa Shootout.

Swindell is driving a Pace Chassis house car during the premier micro sprint event at the River Spirit Expo Center in Tulsa, Okla., Wednesday through Saturday.

“I’ve had fun doing the Tulsa Shootout the last couple of years I’ve been,” he said. “I enjoy it. Honestly, with the year I’ve had I’m excited to get out and do some real racing and enjoy myself.”

Swindell will compete in the outlaw winged, outlaw nonwing, “A” class winged and “A” class nonwing classes on the quarter-mile bullring.

“The goal is to win every race, but it’s also about having fun,” he said. “It’s easy to get caught up in the competitiveness of racing so when you can go race for fun it’s a good thing.”

Swindell has won a Golden Driller twice at the Tulsa Shootout. He was victorious in the Jr. 1 Light class in 2001 and in the Jr. 2 class in 2002.

The Tulsa Shootout also provides Swindell extra laps on the same track that will be used for the Chili Bowl approximately two weeks following the Shootout.
