James Leads Early in Fall 50; Finishes Tenth in Season Finale
(October 26, 2014)
Scott James Motorsports concluded their version of the 2014 racing season on Saturday night, October 25 in the annual running of the 'Fall 50' at Florence Speedway in Union, Kentucky. The unsanctioned, single-day program at the undersized 1/2-mile oval drew 38 competitors to vie for the $5,000 winner's check. Scott James won his heat race in preliminary action and later started the 50-lapper from the outside of the front row. After leading the first half of the race, Scott was hit by a lapped car, which ultimately resulted in a flat tire. He headed pitside on lap 39 for a new Hoosier tire and returned to the speedplant to salvage a tenth place performance.

Scott James Wins Jim Dunn Memorial at PRP; Pockets $3,000!
(October 20, 2014)
Scott James and his #83 team traveled to Portsmouth Raceway Park in Portsmouth, Ohio from October 17-19 for the 34th edition of the 'Dirt Track World Championship.' The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series finale drew a whopping 89 competitors to the south-central Ohio facility and all eyes were fixated on the hefty $50,000 top prize. On Friday night, Scott qualified twentieth fastest in Group B during the time trial session and later finished a very close fourth in his heat race behind only prelim winner Jimmy Owens, John Blankenship, and Doug Drown.

Following a rain-out on Saturday evening, the conclusion of the crown jewel spectacular took place on Sunday afternoon at PRP. Scott ran a strong third in his consolation race, but that was one mere spot out of a coveted transfer position into the 100-lap headliner. Fortunately, the Bright, Indiana ace led almost all of the 30 circuits in the 'Jim Dunn Memorial' for Non-Qualifiers to salvage his weekend. Scott beat Brian Shirley, Corey Conley, Stephen Breeding, and Chris Garnes to the checkers to bag the $3,000 winner's check!
