Last year, defending track champion Joe Adams of Enid, Okla., had the field covered until late in the race when the drive shaft came off of his machine. Despite many of the top drivers in the area competing here each week at 81 Speedway, in the numerous visits made to the speedway by the USMTS teams a local driver has never won the main event. Could it happen this year?
