Southern Indiana veteran Will Kimmel led all 40 laps, turning back a challenge from Josh Poore to win the Street Stock feature on Saturday.

Race fans were greeted by sunny skies and seasonable temperatures on McGowan Insurance Turkey Bash racing at Anderson Speedway on Saturday.

Kimmel, an ARCA Series veteran, started from the outside of the front row and took the lead at the start. He was followed by Danny Adams and Josh Poore.

For the second consecutive year, Anderson Speedway will host the Turkey Bash during Thanksgiving Weekend. The special event scheduled on Saturday Afternoon, November 29 will feature Street Stocks, ThunderCars, Mini Cups along with Front Wheel Drives in Oval and Figure 8 action.

Jerry Dane set the tone for the Front Wheel Drive Oval division but as the year progressed a number of drivers stepped up to challenge for the championship.

Dane won the first three features to open the season but then faltered in the middle stages of the season before rounding out the year with six feature wins and his first Anderson Speedway championship.

When the Pro Compact class was added to the Anderson Speedway schedule during the 2014 season, Ron Phipps and car owner Kevin Harmon didn’t plan on running for a title.

Elliott McKinney is part of a family with a long history at Anderson Speedway and after a decade of competition “Big Daddy” claimed a track championship.

Nick Warner, who was not eligible for the championship, dominated the year winning the majority of the feature events.

Curtis Chapman made it consecutive championships in the NASH-FM Thunder Car division but the outcome wasn’t decided until the final race of the year.

The 2014 racing season ended with a bang Saturday evening at Anderson Speedway as fans enjoyed the EDCO Welding & Hydraulics fireworks show to mark the conclusion to the season and the end of the Stoops Freightliner Night of Thrills.
