Christopher Bell Dominates John Christner Trucking Qualifying Night

1/12/2018

By Bryan Hulbert

TULSA, Okla. (January 11, 2018) Treating Keith Kunz to his third trip to Victory Lane in as many nights during the 32nd Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire, Oklahoma’s Christopher Bell put his title defense in high-gear with a dominating performance during Thursday’s John Christner Trucking Qualifying Night.

Three for three in prelim night wins, Bell commented on the run by saying, “It’s just good racecars. That’s what it really boils down to. All my teammates have been really fast all week long. Keith just brings really, really good cars here.”

Asked about the fact that Kunz is three-for-three on the week, Bell simply stated, “It’s pretty remarkable.”

Earning the pole in Thursday’s 25-lap feature event, Bell stretched his lead to over a half straightaway before the race’s first caution on Lap 4. Preferring the hub of the Tulsa Expo Raceway, Bell again gapped the field with Chase Jones working the hold onto the runner-up spot from Caleb Armstrong.

Slowed again on Lap 14, Bell saw a 4.760-second advantage evaporate as the field rolled single file to the green with Shane Golobic now in the mix with Chase Johnson on the restart.

Taking over second with eight laps to run, Golobic pursued the No. 71w on the cushion with Bell advancing off the hub as Shane came into view on the LED Screens in the closing laps. Looking like Bell was on his way to an easy victory, the caution flag took the place of the white; setting up a two-lap dash to the finish.

Keeping pace with the Bell through the first two turns, Golobic carried his run to the back-stretch, but a tap to the concrete and his momentum was gone as Bell ran to nearly a second advantage at the checkered flag to lock into his fifth career Saturday night A-Feature.

Going to his sixth championship feature with his runner-up performance, Shane Golobic was joined on the podium by Chase Johnson to secure his first trip to the big dance. Just missing the final transfer, Indiana’s Tracy Hines crossed fourth with Caleb Armstrong shuffled to fifth.

Rolling from 17th, Ryan Bernal came up to sixth with Billy Pauch, Jr. seventh. Matt Sherrell from 13th came across eighth, followed by Tim Crawley in ninth. Jerry Coons, Jr. made up the top-ten.

While Bell grabbed the win, two drivers made headlines with runs to the A-Feature from D-Main competition. Suffering woes during their Heat Races, Michael Pickens and Tanner Thorson had to claw their way to the feature with Tanner Thorson advancing position 37 times to end up 11th in the A-Feature while Michael Pickens knocked down 39 spots to end his A-Feature 14th.

With John Christner Trucking Qualifying Night in the books, 258 drivers have drawn in for competition during the 32nd Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire. Thursday’s lineup had 87 of those competitors on hand with 95 more slated to run on Friday. The Fastenal Flip Count saw some tense moments but ended the night at 42 on the week with all drivers able to walk away.

The 32nd Lucas Oil Chili Bowl National presented by General Tire continues on Friday, January 12, 2018, with the night sponsored by Vacuworx. The River Spirit Expo Center opens at 9:00 A.M. with Hot Laps at 4:00 P.M. and racing at 5:00 P.M. (CT).

General Admission tickets, which double as a Pit Pass, are sold at the event and are $45 per weekday and $60 on Saturday. Purchasing consecutive days does save the buyer money. Fans unable to attend can find online PPV coverage at http://www.racinboys.com.

Rico Abreu Returns To Victory Lane With Hard Rock Casino Qualifying Night Triumph

1/11/2018

By Bryan Hulbert

TULSA, Okla. (January 10, 2018) After 15 ½ weeks out of a Racecar following a hard crash at the Four Crown Nationals, California’s Rico Abreu was the class of the field in Wednesday’s Hard Rock Casino Qualifying Night A-Feature.

Securing a spot in his sixth career Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire championship A-Feature with his third career prelim triumph, Abreu’s win was a true testament to his talent and patience behind the wheel, answering nearly 20 laps of slide-jobs from Oklahoma’s Tyler Thomas.

“That’s some intense shit,” said Abreu in Victory Lane of the race with Thomas, which despite its intensity, never saw the pair drive each other in an unprofessional manner.

Elaborating on the race in the press conference, Rico stated, “I don’t think it gets any better or intense than that, especially because you are racing for the lead. On these slide jobs, people come up short and run into each other and that’s when you see wrecks, but I feel like it goes both ways in these situations where if you’re the leader getting slid, you let out of the gas and let them slide across, then turn down and drive right back by him. That’s the way it was done tonight.”

Giving chase to Thomas through the first four laps, the race for the point went three-wide on the fifth revolutions with Alabama’s Kevin Thomas, Jr. taking the lead. Unable to hold of Tyler Thomas the following lap, the caution would fall as the field worked Lap 7 with the caution lights coming on for Parker Price-Miller.

Back to Lap 6, Abreu slung his Keith Kunz Motorsports No. 97 to the curb, picking off second on the restart and setting sights on the lead. Narrowly edging out Tyler off the fourth turn to complete Lap 9, the lead was in his hands off the second turn of Lap 10.

Back to the advantage of Tyler Thomas two laps later, the pair resumed their exchange of bottom to top corners before the caution again came out. Protecting the low line from the slide, the top was clear for Abreu to build his run. With a full head of steam, Rico pulled the trigger and snagged the lead away on Lap 15. The only time during the race that the No. 97 had distance over the race for second, yellow lights appeared again with 19 laps complete.

Slide for slide with the BT Machine No. 91t with Abreu able to make it around first every time, the final caution with two to go was still not enough to deny the California shoe a much-awaited return to Victory Lane.

Crossing 0.655 seconds ahead of Tyler Thomas, the final podium step and transfer spot into Saturday’s A-Feature, remained in the hands of Kevin Thomas, Jr. despite the pressure of having Sammy Swindell on his back bumper the final 10 laps. Exchanging fifth numerous times with Ryan Robinson over the course of 25 laps, the top-five would finally round out with Chris Windom.

Robinson in sixth was trailed by the very hard charging Jason McDougal. Having to come from 11th in the second C-Feature, McDougal advanced position 34 times to earn his seventh-place finish. J.J. Yeley eighth was chased by Gary Taylor with Jeb Sessums, who was the Hard Charger for the A-Feature with 14 positions gained, rounding out the top-ten.

A field of 85 drivers drew in for Wednesday’s Hard Rock Casino Qualifying Night. So far, 171 drivers have seen action in the 32nd Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire. Going into Thursday, the Fastenal Flip Count has reached 34 with Brady Bacon getting a HANS Device from Simpson Race Products as the event’s 25th flip. In all, every crash ended with the driver able to walk away.

The 32nd Lucas Oil Chili Bowl National presented by General Tire continues on Thursday, January 11, 2018, with the night sponsored by John Christner Trucking. The River Spirit Expo Center opens at 9:00 A.M. with Hot Laps at 4:00 P.M. and racing at 5:00 P.M. (CT).

Tony Stewart, Rico Abreu, Jay Drake and Andy Hillenburg are the latest drivers to add their names to the list of Chili Bowl champions who will be at the Chili Bowl Breakfast of Champions taking place on Friday, January 12, 2018 at the Fair Meadows, located just east of the River Spirit Expo Center from 9:00 A.M. to 11:00 A.M. (CT).

Three-time Indianapolis 500 winner Johnny Rutherford will be sharing with the crowd about his growing up in Tulsa and attending midget races at the Tulsa Fairgrounds in his youth. Rutherford, also known as Lone Star JR, will discuss how that shaped his life and what it means to be a Champion.

Kyle Larson Opens 32nd Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals With Victory In Tuesday’s Warren CAT Qualifying Night
1/10/2018

Bryan Hulbert – TULSA, Okla. (January 9, 2018) In a car owned by his father, California’s Kyle Larson picked up his fourth career Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire preliminary victory to tie the driver of the iRacing No. 01 with the late Bryan Clauson for third on the all-time preliminary night win list.

“It’s great to get a win for my Dad. I haven’t been in a car he’s owned since I was in Karts,” said Larson who will take the green in his sixth Lucas Oil Chili Bowl championship event on Saturday night.

Giving chase to pole sitter, Zach Daum, at the start Larson was never lost hold of the Toyota No. 5d, taking several shots at the lead throughout the opening laps. Searching lines after a caution with three laps complete, Larson utilized a Lap 5 restart to jump to the cushion and build his run on Daum. With momentum off the fourth turn, the difference was 0.043 seconds at the line on the eighth round with Kyle securing the top-spot through the first and second turns.

On getting the lead, Larson stated, “I knew if I could get some momentum built up, I could get by [Zach] Daum on the top and I was just hoping he didn’t move up, but he left me a lane and I was able to get the lead. After that, I just ran a decent pace, but I knew I could run harder.”

With Larson putting distance on the field, focus turned to the race for the final two transfer spots into Saturday’s A-Feature as Zach Daum came under fire from Brad Sweet. Swapping lines and position numerous times through the race’s mid-point, the battle came to a close on Lap 20 as Daum hit the brakes to avoid the flipped No. 1b of Travis Rilat; forcing the engine to stall out in the second turn.

Moving Justin Grant into the mix, who had bounced about from third to fifth throughout the race, the NOS Energy Drink No. 7bc began an onslaught of attacks on Sweet for the second spot with each slide job met in kind. While both Sweet and Courtney were able to keep Larson in sight, with Sweet taking one last shot on Lap 22, neither was able to mount the charge as Kyle crossed the checkered flag 1.170 seconds ahead of the battle for second.

Able to hold off the challenges, Brad Sweet grabbed second. Punching a ticket to his fourth A-Feature, his 2018 attempt marks the end of a five-year A-Feature drought, with Tyler Courtney making his second consecutive appearance with his place on the final step of Tuesday’s podium.

Hard Charger on the night, England’s Tom Harris advanced nine spots to fourth in the Bob East No. 4 with Logan Seavey making up the top-five.

2018 Chili Bowl Rookie, Giovani Scelzi crossed sixth with Jake Neuman seventh. Brad Loyet made up six positions to eighth with Scott Evans advancing eight times to ninth. Racing around the top-five early on, Justin Peck ended up rounding out the top-ten.

Also on tap during Tuesday’s opener, the Vacuworx Invitational Race of Champions found its sixth different winner with Arizona’s Chad Boat picking up the victory. Drawing the pole in the 10th annual Vacuworx Invitational Race of Champions, Chad led every lap but was not without challenge as Kyle Larson laid on a charge in the closing laps that nearly saw the iRacing No. 01 steal away the win, but the smooth laps of the No. 84x secured the night’s $6.363.63 payday.

A field of 86 drivers made up Tuesday’s Warren CAT Qualifying Night to kick off the 32nd Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire. So far, the Fastenal Flip Count stands at 12 with two drivers making repeat appearances, but all were able to walk away. The driver who is the 25th to tumble will get a free HANS Device from Simpson Race Products.

The 32nd Lucas Oil Chili Bowl National presented by General Tire continues on Wednesday, January 10, 2018, with the night sponsored by Hard Rock Casino Tulsa. The River Spirit Expo Center opens at 9:00 A.M. with Hot Laps at 4:00 P.M. and racing at 5:00 P.M. (CT).

General Admission tickets, which double as a Pit Pass, are sold at the event and are $45 per weekday and $60 on Saturday. Purchasing consecutive days does save the buyer money.

Bell, Abreu and Stewart are all avid iRacing members, frequently found online racing when they are not racing in the real world and Bell and Abreu were heavily involved in the development of dirt oval racing on iRacing – providing invaluable feedback on the unique characteristics of dirt oval racing surfaces as well as the cars they race – including Midgets and Sprint Cars.

“It’s exciting to finally have Midgets in iRacing” says Kyle Larson. “The fact that we’ll soon be able to run the Chili Bowl virtually is pretty sweet! I can’t wait to run that track whenever I want! It’s been a great working with iRacing and having them on my car for this event. What they have done in the past year with their dirt program and what they continue to do is so awesome for our sport!”

“It’s been fun working with iRacing to get the Midget car into the sim,” says Christopher Bell. “Their engineers really take the time to listen to feedback and work on getting the cars right. I can’t wait to race the Chili Bowl anytime I want! It’s one of my all-time favorites!”

“Just last month we released Christopher Bell’s dirt Midget to iRacing members and they have been asking, no begging, us to add the Chili Bowl,” said Steve Myers, executive vice-president and executive producer at iRacing.com. “Obviously this has been in the works for a while now so it was hard to not tell them it was coming. I know they will be as excited about this announcement as I am.”

“It really says something when iRacing goes to a NASCAR weekend and is asked over and over when the Chili Bowl is going to be added. We don’t go a day it seems without someone asking or mentioning the Chili Bowl being added to iRacing on our Social Media channels so for us to finally be able to make this announcement, we just have to say thank you to everyone who made the Chili Bowl a top request, added Bryan Hulbert, Chili Bowl publicist. “It’s very impressive what iRacing has created, and we’re excited to be involved.”

Pickens Tabbed to Pilot Swindell Motorsports No. 39 at Chili Bowl Nationals

by Shawn Miller

GERMANTOWN, Tenn. (Nov. 30, 2017) - Several of the most well-known entities in midget racing are teaming up for the 2018 Chili Bowl Nationals.

Swindell Motorsports is putting seven-time New Zealand midget champion Michael Pickens in the No. 39 with support from Tim Bertrand of Bertrand Motorsports during the event, which runs Jan. 9-13 inside the River Spirit Expo Center in Tulsa, Okla.

"I wasn't going to run the Chili Bowl this year as we have a lot going on in New Zealand this summer, but when the Swindells ask you to drive their car you don't say no," Pickens said. "I've wanted a Golden Driller for so long now and this is an awesome opportunity to try and get one."

Pickens finished a Chili Bowl career-best third in 2011 behind both Sammy and Kevin Swindell. Pickens charged from 19th to sixth place in 2005 to garner the Chili Bowl Rookie of the Year Award and he also reached the main event in 2010 when he ended 11th, in 2012 when he placed 15th and in 2014 when he finished 20th.

Pickens is the first driver Swindell Motorsports will have in the car outside of Kevin Swindell.

"I've raced with Michael a few times at the Chili Bowl and I ran a few times with him in New Zealand," Sammy Swindell said. "He's always been pretty quick in the midget and done a good job."

The opportunity wouldn't be possible without the support of Bertrand Motorsports, which has been involved in midget racing for approximately two decades and has recorded six championships.

"I met Sammy a couple of years ago through Dan Esslinger and we've become good friends," Bertrand said. "Sammy has driven for me (in a pavement midget). When he was out to our house this summer we talked about doing a deal for the Chili Bowl. I'm super excited to be teaming up with their team. I think Michael Pickens is as good as a driver as you could have."

Kevin Swindell earned an unprecedented four straight Chili Bowl titles in the No. 39 from 2010-13.

"We're excited to have Michael in the car," he said. "He's one of the guys you could say has a good chance at winning each year and I think he has the speed and mindset required to be successful during an event like the Chili Bowl."

Johnny Herrera Racing Completes Chili Bowl Team With Harli White and CatSpot

By Shawn Miller

BROKEN ARROW, Okla. (Nov. 30, 2017) - Johnny Herrera Racing has filled the final opening on its Chili Bowl Nationals roster.

The team is excited to announce that CatSpot will be the primary sponsor of a midget driven by Harli White, who recently became only the third female to complete a full season on the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour. The Chili Bowl is Jan. 9-13 and will be held inside the River Spirit Expo Center in Tulsa, Okla.

"We're thrilled to team up with Tommy Thompson Motorsports, CatSpot cat litter and Harli White," Johnny Herrera said. "John Stroud, who co-owns the midget operation with me, and I are extremely happy with the team we have assembled for the 2018 Chili Bowl."

White has competed in a handful of Chili Bowl events with her best result coming in her most recent outing in 2016, when she finished 10th during her preliminary night A Main before being caught up in an opening-lap crash during the B Main on the final night.

"Whenever I got the call about possibly racing I was excited," she said. "Johnny's cars are super nice and the best of the best. It's a great opportunity. I've finished in the B Main a couple of times so I can't wait to see how I can do this year. Johnny has been around racing forever and he knows what's going on. I'm not only getting a great car, I'm getting a good team behind me."

CatSpot is an organic cat litter delivery service. The litter is all natural, which is odor eliminating and hypoallergenic. The product is sold online at http://www.CatSpotLitter.com and is delivered with free shipping.

"CatSpot is a great product and service and Harli is a great driver so we are pretty excited about this combination," Herrera said. "We have two other great drivers competing as well. I think this will be a fun event."

Bricen James, who finished eighth in a C Main to narrowly miss a transfer into a B Main during his Chili Bowl debut last year, is slated to return to the Johnny Herrera Racing stable and will be joined by Scottie McDonald of Dissolvalloy.

11/15/2017

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (November 14, 2017) Clauson-Marshall Racing and the Tony Elliott Foundation will partner for a 2018 co-branded entry for the 2018 Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire, happening January 8 through January 13, 2018, in Tulsa, Okla.

“The Tony Elliott Foundation is excited to partner with Clauson-Marshall Racing for the 2018 Chili Bowl. For the third year, we will be assisting a driver and keeping Tony’s legacy alive for one of his favorite events of the year” commented Cindy Elliott, Tony’s wife. “We can’t think of a better was to raise awareness for the Foundation and the Driven 2 Save Lives campaign and celebrate both Tony and Bryan’s love of short track racing”

“We are very excited and humbled to represent the Tony Elliott Foundation at the Chili Bowl in 2018. For me the connection is personal as Tony was a great mentor to Bryan when he began his sprint car career and to get to partner with his foundation and to be a part of his legacy is humbling, to say the least. I know Tony and Bryan are smiling down on us today.”

The Chili Bowl is one of the most prestigious races of the year and in 2017 had over 360 entries for the 31st annual event where several drivers from all varieties of motorsports over the years have competed including Bryan and Tony, Tony Stewart, Rich Vogler, Sammy Swindell and his son Kevin Swindell.

The Driven 2 Save Lives campaign through the Indiana Donor Network has registered over 6,000 people to date since Bryan’s passing. The Tony Elliott Foundation has assisted a number of drivers and race teams since being founded after Tony’s passing.

A driver for the Clauson-Marshall Racing/Tony Elliott Foundation entry will be named during a press conference at the PRI Show in Indianapolis in the coming weeks.

Alex Bright and Billy Pauch Jr. Team Up For Chili Bowl Nationals

By Mandee Pauch

November 14, 2017 - Two of the most prolific young guns from the northeast will be joining forces for the 32nd Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals Jan. 9-13th in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
 
The two wheelmen, who regularly battle each other on a weekly basis, will be teaming together to tackle the most prestigious event in midget racing.
 
The driver out of Collegeville, PA, Alex Bright, will once again be heading west to compete but this time with a teammate, the versatile driver out of Milford, N.J., Billy Pauch Jr.
 
“I’m excited that I’m going to have two really good cars out there,” Bright said. “I’ll have a really good driver as my teammate so with a lot of luck I’m looking forward to both of us putting it in the A-main.”
 
Bright has been continuously competing in the Chili Bowl. Bright’s best finish to date was a fourth-place finish back in 2014. The following year Bright came out victorious by winning his first ever prelim night.
 
Pauch Jr.’s last visit to the Chili Bowl came back in 2013 where he finished 14th on his qualifying night and made it as far as the C-Main on Saturday.
 
The Chili Bowl is famous for its ‘alphabet soup.’ To even advance into a Main on Saturday through the alphabet soup is an accomplishment to most drivers.
 
“That race has over 300 drivers trying to qualify all week for just one night,” noted Pauch Jr. “You have to be on-top of your game. I think with what we have we should come out of the box rolling pretty good.”
 
Bright and Pauch Jr. are pleased to announce Degre Engineering and Wyckoff Roofing as their primary sponsors for the event. The team will be trekking two Elite Chassis with them. Bright will be behind the wheel of a brand new Elite.
 
“I’ll be running the car Alex ran the past two years at the Chili Bowl,” Pauch Jr. said. “He had a lot of success in that car and ran fourth in Saturday’s A-Main with it. It’s been five years since I last raced out there so as a driver I feel like I’ve grown a lot and am looking forward to having a really good race car and teammate to take to out there.”
 
Bright’s results have proven the success the Elite chassis can do at the Chili Bowl.
 
“The results show,” Bright said. “I think we have a really good shot, especially with Ed Heffline on the wrenches.”
 
Bright and Pauch Jr. are well known for their on-track rivalry at their Wednesday night home track in 600-micro sprint division.
 
“Alex and I have been competitors for the past couple of years,” Pauch Jr. said. “We’ve both have had mutual respect as drivers on and off the track. I’m looking forward to teaming with him and his crew.”
 
The uncanny combination will be sure to have everyone in the northeast tuning in to the prestigious event.
 
“If we get to the A-Main, then we can duke it out,” laughed Bright.
 
Bright and Pauch Jr. are both confident and excited as the countdown for the 32nd Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals has officially begun.

Johnny Herrera Racing Offering Top-Notch Ride for Chili Bowl

By Shawn Miller

BROKEN ARROW, Okla. (Nov. 9, 2017) - Johnny Herrera has one remaining ride open for the 2018 Chili Bowl Midget Nationals.

The midget is a 2016 Spike with a new Esslinger engine. The car is all titanium with a carbon body and was driven by Ryan Bernal in the 2017 Chili Bowl.

"This is a top-notch midget," Herrera said. "Everything is in great shape and it will give anyone an opportunity to be a contender at the Chili Bowl."

Serious inquires can message Herrera on Twitter ( https://twitter.com/JohnnyHerrera2 ) or via the contact page on his website at http://www.JohnnyHerreraRacing.com .

Bricen James, who finished eighth in a C Main to narrowly miss a transfer into a B Main during his Chili Bowl debut last year, is slated to return to the Johnny Herrera Racing stable and will be joined by Scottie McDonald.

Herrera will not be racing in the Chili Bowl this year and will work solely on his three midgets throughout the event.

Christopher Bell Wins The 2017 Chili Bowl Nationals

TULSA, Okla. (January 14, 2017) In 1994, Andy Hillenburg became the first Oklahoman to win the Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire. Twenty-three years later, the Golden Driller has made its way home as Norman, Oklahoma’s Christopher Bell made his mark in the history books as the champion of the 31st annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire.

Earning the victory for Keith Kunz Motorsports, Bell’s win puts Keith with six overall Chili Bowl titles as a car owner since 1994 when Hillenburg wheeled the Keith and Rusty Kunz owned entry to Victory Lane.

“I’m speechless right now. I’ve been coming to this building for so long trying to win one of these things, and I thought I was really close to won at the Shootout a couple weeks ago, but we had a lot of bad luck but I’ll trade all that bad luck in for this Driller right here. This means the world to me,” commented a very emotional Christopher Bell in Victory Lane. “Most of my bad luck in this race has been self-inflicted. You know, I’ve been in this position before. I think this is the third time I’ve started on the front row and I would run into trouble because I was pushing too hard. Every time I’ve come here, it’s been attack, attach, attack and in this 55 lap race, you don’t need to do that so I just ran as hard as I needed too.”

In his fourth feature appearance, the Kunz/Toyota combination gridded the 55 lap championship A-Main outside the front row with Bell playing the role of hunter the first 25 rounds as Indiana’s Justin Grant paced the field in the Clauson-Marshal No. 39BC.

With the high side of the racing surface coming into play near the 15th circuit, Bell began reeling in the #Driven2SaveLives No. 39BC. Overtaking Grant with a highline pass off the second turn. Followed soon after by Daryn Pittman, the Owasso, Okla. native trailed by a half-straight as the pair approached traffic.

Moving back in on Bell’s bumper as slower cars were about to come into play, a caution brought the field single file.

Through a few more cautions, Pittman was able to build momentum. With a run in the closing laps that brought the threat of a slide job into play, Pittman found the cushion just wrong to nearly send the No. 21 into the fence, giving Bell a clear path to victory.

Fighting engine woes, the runner-up by Pittman was quite the achievement.

“We don’t have a spare engine, so we weren’t able to change it. Luckily we have a really good engine builder. I’ve got to thank Esslinger and their crew. They rebuilt this engine last year when we had issues, and when we realized we could fix it today, it lasted for 54 and three-quarter laps,” said Pittman who recorded his first career Chili Bowl podium finish in seven starts.

Having led the first 25 laps, Justin Grant ended up crossing third in his second Chili Bowl A-Feature appearance.

“It’s just a thrill to be driving for Clauson-Marshall Racing and obviously I wanted to win for him (Bryan Clauson) really bad, but I’m on the podium at Chili Bowl so I should be happy about that,” commented Grant on the third place finish.

Coming out of the night’s second C-Feature, Tanner Thorson charged through the field to a fourth place finish with Jake Swanson making up the top-five. Tyler Courtney came home sixth with Zach Daum from 11th to seventh. Making his 14th consecutive, and 18th overall A-Feature start, Arizona’s Jerry Coons Jr. came from a B-Main to finish eighth. Ronnie Gardner ninth was followed by Damion Gardner in 10th from the 16th starting spot.

The biggest moving through the Alphabet was Thomas Meseraull. Despite a DNF in the A-Feature, the driver from San Jose passed 24 cars starting in the D-Feature to race in the big show. The 2017 Chili Bowl Rookie of the Year is Donny Schatz who finished seventh in the first B-Feature.

The dates for the 32nd Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire will be January 9-13, 2018 inside the River Spirit Expo Center. Tickets go on sale in March, 2017. More details will be released in the coming month.
