    Chili Bowl Entries trickling into Tulsa

    Bryan Hulbert - TULSA, Okla. (November 13, 2013) While the countdown to the next Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire, for some, begins the second the checkered flag falls on Saturday’s A-Feature, the reality of the world’s biggest indoor Midget race closing in begins as the first entry forms arrive at the Chili Bowl office.

    Sent out just over a week ago, it only took a couple days for the first entry forms to begin coming back. The first to arrive; the three car team of Shannon McQueen Racing.

    At time of press, 26 entries have returned to Tulsa with 21 confirmed drivers from seven states plus a trio of rookie contenders. The 2013 lot saw 48 drivers vying for Rookie of the Year, which was ultimately earned by California’s D.J. Netto.

    Drivers from California and Oklahoma each number seven entries thus far. A pair for Arizona and Illinois with Iowa, Ohio, and Wisconsin having each sent a single entry so far. The 2013 Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire officially saw 268 entries from 32 states and three countries.

    The entry list for the 2014 event is scheduled for release on December 12, 2013 during PRI Indy.

    So far, no entries have been returned to qualify for the Vacuworx Invitational Race of Champions. The sixth edition of the Champion’s showdown is scheduled for Tuesday, January 14, 2014. With the exception of Brad Loyet’s victory in 2010, the Swindell name has dominated the VIROC. Sammy has conquered the champion’s showdown three times (2009, 2011, and 2012) with Kevin laying claim to the VIROC trophy in 2013. Invitation into the VIROC involves begin a past champion, either as a driver or an owner.

    The 28th Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire will begin moving teams in on Sunday January 12, 2014.

    Practice is scheduled for Monday, January 13 with the first night of competition getting underway with Tuesday’s Warren CAT Qualifying night as well as the sixth annual Vacuworx Invitational Race of Champions.

    Competition continues with Wednesday’s River Spirit Casino Qualifier, Thursday’s John Christner Trucking Qualifier, and Friday Vacuworx Global Qualifier with everything culminating on Saturday’s Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Championship.

    The top three in each Qualifying Night A-Feature will transfer directly into the Saturday championship event with the remainder of Saturday’s features lined up according to the Qualifying night finishes.
