One Record Down, More To Go As 30th Annual Chili Bowl Approaches

(Image Credit: Tim Aylwin)
TULSA, Okla. (December 27, 2015) While barely pushing past last year’s pre-entry record of 330, the close of business on Sunday, December 27, 2015 shows 331 entries for the 30th annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire, happening January 12-16, 2016 inside the River Spirit Expo Center in Tulsa, Okla.

With the pre-entry list going over the 330 mark, the official participant record of 326, also set in 2015, is next in line to be toppled. There are currently 306 confirmed drivers.

Among the latest wave of entries is the Loyet lineup with five drivers making up this year’s Orange Army. Brad Loyet’s five A-Feature appearances leads the quintet of talent with Washington’s Gary Taylor looking for appearance No. 3. New Zealand’s Brad Mosen put his name on the A-Feature roster in 2010, and makes his return to the Chili Bowl Nationals roster for the first time since 2012. Missouri’s Hunter Schuerenberg and California’s Dominic Scelzi complete the Loyet lineup with each looking of their first trip to Saturday’s big dance.

Balancing between ARCA testing in Daytona and the Chili Bowl, Alabama’s Kevin Thomas, Jr. will pilot an Indy Race Parts entry with Kevin Swindell Motorsports playing a role in the team’s comings and goings. Six 8 Motorsports has also entered a pair of drivers with Ronnie Gardner and Jake Swanson filling the seats. Another set to team mates making the list is California’s Chad Boespflug and Ohio’s Landon Simon for Bill Ecker and Amy Reisdorf.

Sitting at 51 past A-Feature starters, the list of first timers has shot up to 65 with rookies making their way to the Tulsa Expo Raceway from 25 states and three countries. The overall state count stands at 34 with the overall countries represented currently at five (United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, and New Zealand).

For fans still needing tickets, the only reserved seat ticket left is for Tuesday night. The only other option is a Pit Pass which gets you access to General Admission seating on the back stretch. It is first come, first served. Pit Passes are $45 per day (Tuesday-Friday) and $60 on Saturday. Pit Passes are sold at the event only.

Any driver wishing to participate must be a minimum of 16 years of age. Any driver in question will be required to present a copy of their Birth Certificate before their entry will be accepted. Teams can request qualifying nights. We will do our best to accommodate, but no guarantees are made that your request will be fulfilled.

For questions regarding entries, please contact Bryan Hulbert at (918) 838-3777. For questions regarding Parking, as well as event procedure and rulings, please contact Matt Ward at (918) 995-1650.
