BARDSTOWN, Ky. - May 8. Jimmy Owens joined the ever-growing list of 2010 World of Outlaws Late Model Series winners on Saturday, rolling to victory in the 50-lap 'My Old Kentucky Home Shootout' at Bluegrass Speedway.

Owens, 38, of Newport, Tenn., grabbed the lead from Steve Francis on lap two and never looked back in the national tour's inaugural visit to the high-banked, half-mile oval. He later survived a stern mid-race challenge from another
