TULSA, Okla. (December 15, 2014) - As construction of Tulsa Expo Raceway begins, the entry list for the 29th annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire has swelled past the 200 mark with 206 entries confirming 194 drivers.

Among the latest wave of drivers are half-dozen Golden Driller winners as four-time champion, Kevin Swindell, has entered along with five-time champion, Sammy Swindell, in what could possibly be the Tennessee veteran's final Chili Bowl appearance. The elder Swindell's 25th Chili Bowl appearance, Sammy leads the list of feature starts with 21 to his credit.

Teaming with Joe Dooling and Rusty Kunz, 2014 champion, Bryan Clauson, will seek his second Golden Driller in the Priority Aviation No. 63. Teamed with Michael Pickens, the pair represents 10 Chili Bowl feature starts with each having taken the green in five championship A-Features.

Thirteen feature starts for Tracy Hines, the 2005 Chili Bowl winner will again pilot the Bob Parker owned No. 24. The always formidable team of Andy Bondio and Tim McCreadie will seek the Late Model veteran's second driller since topping the field in 2006. Damion Gardner will have more than just the driller on his mind as the Concord, Cal. shoe will pilot the No. 71L for Klatt Motorsports as the car represents the late, Jason Leffler. Pairing Gardner in the Leffler Memorial machine is only fitting as it was Damion who gave Leffler his Golden Driller as a car owner.

An overview of the latest entry list finds 33 drivers who have made the cut in Saturday's A-Feature along with 48 Chili Bowl Rookies; including the Chili Bowl's first driver from England. With Twitter already abuzz, the British are indeed coming as Tom Harris, of Oxfordshire, England, will wheel the Beast Enterprises No. 6. If Harris does check in, the list of countries represented at the Chili Bowl will stand at seven.

Presently, Canada, England, New Zealand, and the United States are represented. State count for the U.S. stands at 27.
