Bryan Hulbert – TULSA, Okla. (January 10, 2024) Leading all but on lap during Wednesday’s York Plumbing Qualifying Night at the 38th annual Chili Bowl Nationals powered by NOS Energy, California’s Corey Day captured his first career Chili Bowl preliminary win, behind the wheel of the Willie Kahne, owned No. 41.

A manufacturer winner with Factory Kahne Shocks numerous times; the Wednesday triumph is a first for Willie as a car owner.

“It’s crazy, it’s definitely crazy. I think they said my best prelim run here in ninth, and this is only my third Chili Bowl,” stated Corey of the win. “I have laps around here in a micro at the Shootout. I actually have a restricted driller like eight years ago. It’s been a while since I’ve had some success in this building, so I’m glad to be back.”

Chasing Jake Swanson through the opening lap, Day shot low on entry into the first turn, to slide his way to the top spot. Surviving several restarts, and a few scares into the cushion, Swanson was able to close but never able to overtake, as he had to fend off the repeated challenges of Michael Faccinto.

Dropping to third on Lap 22, Swanson stayed the course on the cushion to retake the final transfer spot into Saturday’s 55-lap championship event on Lap 25. One final shot at the lead after a flip by Jonathan Beason working Lap 27, Day was able to pull away by 1.957-seconds.

“We still didn’t financially recover. We are having a lot more fun,” laughed Swanson, whose car owner, Alex Bowman, tweeted, “I don’t think I’ll be able to recover from this” after a miserable outing for his entire team in 2023.

“It means everything, this race means so much to Alex. It’s vacation with all of his friends. To be able to run well is obviously the goal. Thankful to be able to do that, and not have as much tore up equipment so far this week. Just thankful for him providing really good race cars. Nicest cars in the building in my opinion. CJ, Kevin Thomas, and Boots, I got a lot of guys over there work really hard and very appreciative of all them supporting me and that’s why we are here”

Briggs Danner shuffled into third with three laps to go, while Faccinto settled for fourth. Colby Copeland made up the top five. Kale Drake crossed sixth, followed by Jade Avedisian. Getting into the first turn Haybales trying to avoid a spinning car on Lap 4, Tyler Courtney was able to restart at the tail and closed his way to an eighth place finish. Brent Crews and Jerry Coons, Jr. made up the top ten.

A field of 74 out of a scheduled 75 was on hand Wednesday night, bringing the week’s running total to 212 drivers drawing in. Another 79 are set to be on track for Thursday’s Victory Fuel Qualifying Night. A busy night of the flip count, the tumble meter stands at 22 with everyone able to walk away. Special thanks to Simpson Race Products for giving out new equipment during this year’s flip count.

The SageNet Center will open at 9:00 A.M. with cars on track at 4:00 P.M. Following Thursday’s program, there will be a party in the pits until 2:00 A.M. (CT).

The 38th annual Chili Bowl Nationals takes place January 8-13, 2024, under the giant roof of the SageNet Center in Tulsa, Okla. Fans unable to attend the Chili Bowl Nationals can watch every lap live at
