This was Odom’s first Street Outlaws No Prep Kings event win. Then, his teammate Jim Howe took home his second No Prep Kings Invitational win.
Howe defeated Kallee Mills in the final round of the Invitational at the Texas Motorplex in Ennis, Texas. He is $40,000 richer with the win.
“Thank you, Texas!!!!!,” Howe Motorsports said in a Facebook post. “Howe/Odom clean sweep. Friday night John wins great 8. Tonight I won the world finals 40k.”
He ended the season with two wins in the last four races. Howe also defeated Kye Kelley in the final round at Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio.
Both Odom and Howe debuted new cars this year for the No Prep Kings season. Odom is driving a 2020 GTR, while Howe is driving a 1967 Camaro nicknamed “The Gaurdian.”
Mills was making her first NPK final-round appearance. She made her debut in the Invitational at Maple Grove Raceway in May.
Howe took out the top two Championship contenders en route to the win. In the first round, he defeated Ryan Martin.
Martin had to wait it out as Kye Kelley had a chance to clinch the championship with the win. Instead, he drew Howe in the second round.
Howe then knocked out Kelley to give Martin the win. Howe also defeated Shawn Wilhoit and Jerry Bird before defeating Mills in the final round.
