After World Finals, the two-time World of Outlaws Champion Jason Meyers will be heading to Australia for the New Year to begin his 2014 racing campaign with Steve Caunt Racing.


“The last time I paired up with Steve Caunt Racing in 2012, I had a great time,” explained Meyers. “The SCR9 is a good car and I look forward to getting back in the driver’s seat. ”
