  1. OK, so now that Danica has more than likely run her last Cup race, who do you think will be the next female driver promoted by NASCAR?
  2. Kyle Larson Wins The 34th annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire by Bryan Hulbert TULSA, Okla. (January 18, 2020) "I'm sorry NASCAR, I'm sorry Daytona, but this is the biggest effing race I've ever won. I hope to win Daytona in a few weeks, but this is badass!" That said it all as Kyle Larson found redemption from a last-lap loss one year ago as the Elk Grove, California native finally captured the Golden Driller in the 34th annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire. Larson, in his 13th Chili Bowl attempt, and ninth A-Feature appearance, trailed the opening 38 laps as Christopher Bell took the lead from the pole. Brendon Bauman photo Chasing into traffic early, the Lucas Oil No. 01 would close to just under a second before being gapped by over two seconds as the pair sliced through the back of the field. Caution on Lap 34, the restart saw Larson keeping pace with Bell. Throwing the slide job into the first turn, Kyle wasn't quick enough as Bell raced by on the cushion. Slowed again three laps later, Larson again kept pace with the pair battling back and forth for the lead. With momentum to his advantage, Larson dove the bottom of the first and second turn on Lap 39. Sliding across the nose of the Tucker-Boat No. 84x, Bell tried to turn under Kyle, but the drag race into the third turn saw Larson slam the door on Bell to take the race lead. Holding off the charge through two more cautions, the final laps saw Bell close in, but would not have enough time as Larson crossed 0.801 seconds ahead of the 2019 race winner. Making his first championship feature event, Monday prelim winner Cannon McIntosh put the Keith Kunz Motorsports No. 71k on the podium in his first full weekend with the team. Working the hub of the Tulsa Expo Raceway, Logan Seavey wheeled the Kevin Swindell Motorsports No. 39 forward seventh positions to fourth with Rick Abreu completing the top five. Jonathan Beason crossed sixth with 2020 Chili Bowl Rookie of the Year, Michael "Buddy" Kofoid finishing seventh. Having to charge from the back of the field twice, Blake Hahn fought to eighth to become the night's Hard Charger. Ryan Bernal and Tucker Klaasmeyer completed the top five. Saturday's races began with double O-Features. Several drivers made impressive runs through the Alphabet with Chris Cochran advancing six times from the N-Feature to the I-Feature. Cale Conley, Casey Shuman, Brayton Lynch, and Alex Sewell all advanced through five events. Overall, it was the Boost Oxygen No. 11 who advance the most positions with a net gain of 43. The 2020 Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire saw an overall field of 343 drivers from 40 states and six countries. The Worldwide Technologies Raceway Flip Count ended at 77, setting a new record for the Chili Bowl Nationals. All drivers were unharmed. The 35th annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire will take place January 11-16, 2021. Information about tickets will be posted as the information is finalized.

  3. Bronson Three-Peats, Leyendecker and Sparkman Win on Night #3 of Sunshine Nationals at Volusia BARBERVILLE, FL – Jan. 18, 2020 – Three days of Dirt Late Model racing in the Sunshine State came to an exciting finish on Saturday night at Volusia Speedway Park when Kyle Bronson completed the weekend sweep of the DIRTcar Pro Late Model class after a thrilling battle with Michael Page to capture the $10,000 Sunshine Nationals finale check. Completing Saturday night’s action were two other action-packed Features in which Colton Leyendecker traded in back-to-back third-place finishes for a win in the 602 Late Model division while Dusty Sparkman got his first career win at Volusia in the Florida Late Model Feature. DIRTcar PRO LATE MODELS – KYLE BRONSON A member of the invading “Super Late Model regulars” club this weekend, Brandon, FL’s Kyle Bronson was a big favorite to win it all right from the get-go. And he did just that. The 29-year-old wheelman known as Killer never lost his focus throughout the entire event. Not once. He was fastest overall on practice night, set fast time in Qualifying on Friday night, won all but one of his Heat races and was victorious in all three Features. Utter domination. One notable regarding his wins – each one was increasingly more challenging than the last. That notion really came to the forefront in Saturday night’s drive to Victory Lane, when he was forced to drive through fellow Super Late Model guru Michael Page to earn it. And make no mistake, Page really, really made Bronson work for it. Right at the drop of the green, Page made a beeline for the lead as he proceeded to grab it and lead the field around to complete the first lap. Starting right behind Page, Bronson followed him and broke away from the pack a few laps later to start their high-speed battle for the top spot. Bronson threw the first of many traded slide-jobs between the two on lap 10, clipping Page’s nose as he drove on by. On a restart just three laps later, Page returned the favor by getting into Bronson’s left-rear on a failed pass attempt in Turn 1. “I slid [Page] and he kinda got in the back of me, but it was just hard racing,” Bronson said. “He hit me in the left-rear, just trying hard, and when he did it bent my left-rear wheel.” “We’re both as hard of a racer as the other,” Page said. “I just felt that, on a racetrack that was wide, [Bronson] just kinda came in there and thought he had me cleared but he didn’t. It knocked the steering wheel out of my hands.” The next restart restacked the field and refocused Page, as he threw a slide-job of his own, which Bronson countered by crossing-over as they raced out of Turn 2. The second of two red flags was displayed as they entered turn three, and there the leaders sat, parked right next to each other amidst the stoppage, discussing their intentions. “It just rubbed me the wrong way because the last time we raced, [Bronson] did the same so I returned the favor, maybe a little worse, but we stopped down there and I told him,” Page said. “We talked for a minute and I said, ‘let’s race.’ And after that, we raced. I don’t know if you could have raced anybody harder after that.” “We were just telling each other how much we loved each other and were ready to drink a beer after the races,” Bronson joked. Sitting inside of his Baird Truck and Trailer Sales #18X, Page was dreading the time spent not moving, as the gamble he took on tire selection for the 30-lap Feature did not appear to be working to his advantage. “The red flags killed it. I went on hard tires so they kinda sealed-up on me. Every time the car would come back in, the yellow would come out,” Page said. Meanwhile, an unfortunate situation was developing right underneath Bronson’s #40B as they sat parked on the track, waiting for cleanup to conclude. The contact Bronson’s left-rear tire received from Page’s nose on the earlier restart resulted in a slow leak, and Bronson could hear the clock ticking as they awaited the next restart. “My tire was going flat since lap 14, and then we had the red flag after that,” Bronson said. “I was praying we went back green [quick] because I could hear my tire leaking. Then it finally blew out coming to the checkered.” “It didn’t officially blow all the way out until the last lap there, we were racing on probably a pound or two of air,” Bronson added. In the end, the tire held up… at least, as long as it needed to for Bronson to see the checkers. He battled with the Georgian for several more laps after the red, again trading slide-jobs for the lead before lap 20. Another restart with 13 laps remaining threw Brandon Williams into the mix, who Bronson was also able to put behind him as he drove to his third checkered flag in three nights. All-in-all, the Bronson v. Page battle was settled 100 percent on the racetrack. They may have beaten and banged their cars up quite a bit before all was said and done, but the greatest sight of all may have been in Victory Lane, where the two smiled and shook hands in front of the crowded Volusia bleachers and DIRTVision cameras. “He knows how I felt and I know how he felt,” Page said. “Instead of going around and talking to everybody else about it, we worked it out like you’re supposed to as a racer.” Williams brought out the final caution flag of the race with four laps remaining and dropped out due to an ill-timed mechanical failure, crumpling his best run of the weekend. Arthur Walked capped off his solid weekend with his first podium finish, and Jason Fitzgerald rebounded from being a part of the second red flag incident to come back and finish fifth. Randy Weaver was strong all weekend but couldn’t find his mojo when it mattered most; settling for seventh after starting outside pole in the finale. Ashton Winger joined the Pro Late Model field for a chance at the 10-grand on Saturday, and had a decent run going early, but was on the receiving end of a nasty barrel-rolling flip in Turn 2 that ended his night. He, and every other driver involved, walked away under his own power.

  4. Two Repeat Winners, One New Victor in Night #2 of Volusia’s Sunshine Nationals BARBERVILLE, FL – Jan. 17, 2020 – Night #2 of the inaugural DIRTcar Sunshine Nationals was a very telling tale of who the Saturday night finale contenders will be, with two repeat winners, almost a third, on Friday night at Volusia Speedway Park. Kyle Bronson was one of two drivers to double-up on Friday night, making a big move for the lead underneath Jadon Frame on a restart to get the edge, which he carried all the way back to the checkered flag for his second consecutive DIRTcar Pro Late Model win at Volusia. Likewise, David Showers Jr. went back-to-back in the Florida Late Model division, just one night after scoring his very first win in a Late Model, and Bud Chancey took advantage of an engine malfunction out front to claim his first 602 Late Model win at The World’s Fastest Half Mile. DIRTcar PRO LATE MODELS – KYLE BRONSON It was a case of déjà vu on the podium of the Pro Late Model Feature on Friday night, as Bronson led the final 20 laps and beat out fellow Super Late Model stars Randy Weaver and Max Blair. However, Bronson had to work for it a bit, compared to Thursday night. Killer jetted out to the runner-up spot within two laps of the race, giving chase to leader Jadon Frame. A restart on lap five put Bronson’s #40B on Frame’s rear bumper as they dove into turn one, Bronson with a big run to Frame’s inside. The two made contact that ended with Frame in the wall and Bronson racing off, unharmed. “I kept getting under the guy, and he kept turning left on me, but I really didn’t have position to finish him off with the way these Crate motors run around here,” Bronson said. “When I finally got position on him, I felt like I was about a half-car ahead of him. I went to do a slide-job on him and, I don’t really know if he just stayed in the gas or hit a slick spot and hit the fence or whatever happened.” Frame left the track on the hook as Bronson stayed out and led the rest of the way to collect $2,000 for the win. Bronson admitted he and Frame touched as they battled for the lead out of Turn 2, but also said what followed was just the product of the drive to win. “I hate what happened, but in my shoes, if I had to do anything over again, I wouldn’t change nothing I did. I wish the outcome would have been a little bit different, but that’s the way it goes. We come to win these races; I’m driving my butt off to win these races. [My team] are giving me a damn good car, so I’ve just got to do my job,” Bronson said. “There definitely was contact, 100 percent. It wasn’t anything crazy, just a deal that I feel like on these Crate cars, when someone gets their quarter-panel to your left-front, it’s time to check. Or, stay out there and wreck yourself – kinda what [Frame] did,” Bronson added. Randy Weaver had another solid drive to a runner-up finish, this time from much further back, starting 9th and dropping back to 12th on the first lap. He made patient moves through the field and used the well-timed yellows to catch the leaders within 15 laps to score his second podium finish of the weekend. Max Blair held his car inside the top-five for most of the race, dropping back to seventh after the lap five restart, but was able to rebound for another third-place finish. For a short time, the Titusville, PA-native held the runner-up spot before Weaver tracked him down and passed him with what could have been the fastest car on the track, next to Bronson. Douglasville, GA’s Super Late Model guru Michael Page finally brought out his #18X on day two of competition and joined the field as one of the favorites on the roster. His first night on track, however, did not go as he had planned, as his race ended by stopping at the topside of turn two with a mechanical failure.

  5. Thorson Delivers A Thriller On Vacuworx Qualifying Night by Bryan Hulbert TULSA, Okla. (January 17, 2020) Four leaders, seven official lead changes, and at the end of Friday's Vacuworx Qualifying Night; a drag race to the checkered flag that saw Tanner Thorson holding off Ryan Bernal at the line for his first career preliminary A-Feature victory in the 34th running of the Lucas Oil Chili Bowl National presented by General Tire. DB3 photo Making the win sweeter for Thorson is the fact that 10 months ago, the outlook on his career was grim following a crash that nearly ended his career. "This means a lot. I didn't know if I was ever going to be able to race again. My parents didn't tell me until about two months after the fact that on one of my last appointments that the surgeon said I may never be able to use my left arm again.," stated, Tanner. "It was definitely one of the hardest times of my life and hopefully I don' have to do anything harder." Chasing from fifth as Chris Windom took the lead from the pole, the race early was for second as Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. battling with Klaasmeyer who took the position as the caution flew. Race for the lead on the restart, Stenhouse stuck the NOS Energy Drink No. 17s to the hub to overtake Windom off the second turn on Lap 4. Opening his advantage to nearly a second in two laps, the Whelen caution shown working Lap 7. Back to the last fully completed lap, Stenhouse led Tanner Thorson to the green with the Oil Fire Whiskey No. 19 keeping step with the Mississippi shoe. Working the low side until Lap 8, Thorson shot to the cushion with the lead in sight. Adjusting up the track on Lap 10, Stenhouse held off the charge as Tucker Klaasmeyer rolled into the picture to battle for second. In traffic on Lap 14, the point changed hands working Lap 15 as Ricky slipped off the bottom and opened the door by Thorson, however, the caution negated the pass as a pair of cars tangled in the third turn. Moving Stenhouse back to the point as the field reverted to Lap 14, the lead was short-lived as Ricky slammed through the cushion and into the wall, in turn, three on the restart. Thorson to the lead, Windom took over second with Klaasmeyer also taking a spot away from Stenhouse. Stalked by fifth running Justin Grant, the No. 4a threw a massive slide job for third, but the caution would put him back to fifth on the restart which saw Stenhouse suddenly at the mercy of a failed part on the left rear as the car shot into the wall. To the final 13 laps, Windom wasted no time going after the lead. Slide for slide, Windom and Thorson traded the top spot with the pair nearly tangling in turn four on Lap 20, opening the bottom to Ryan Bernal who shot from fourth the first in an instant. Caution bringing the battle to rest with 10 laps to run as Andrew Layser added his name to the Worldwide Technologies Raceway Flip Count, Bernal protected the bottom on the restart. Keeping to the hub, Thorson retook the runner-up spot on the cushion. With momentum on Lap 24, the slide jobs were on again. Swapping top to bottom on Lap 25, Thorson took the lead with Windom making it a three-car battle on the final lap. Fighting around a lapped car, the run to the win came down to the final turn with Tanner Thorson hustling the high side to the line 0.166 seconds ahead of Ryan Bernal. Chris Windom ended up third with Tucker Klaasmeyer fourth. Gridding the field 16th, Justin Allgaier charged forward 11 positions to complete the top five. For the week, a field of 343 drivers drew in for the 34th annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire.

  8. Bronson, Overton and Showers Jr. Victorious in Round 1 of Inaugural Sunshine Nationals BARBERVILLE, FL – Jan. 16, 2020 – The first race night of the inaugural DIRTcar Sunshine Nationals was jam-packed with the Late Model racing everyone had been craving since the 2019 regular season wound down just a few months ago. Twenty-four 602 Late Models, 16 Florida Late Models and 41 Pro Late Models lined the Volusia Speedway Park pit areas on Thursday night for their first look of the year at the track under racing conditions. The three Features capped off what was a very entertaining night of racing at The World’s Fastest Half Mile, in which Kyle Bronson came out on top of the DIRTcar Pro Late Models, Cody Overton won the 602 Late Model Feature and David Showers Jr. was victorious in the final event of the evening, the Florida Late Model Feature. DIRTcar PRO LATE MODELS – KYLE BRONSON It seems as though it pays to be an ace of the Super Late Model ranks when jumping into a Pro Late Model at Volusia. Brandon, FL-native Kyle Bronson put on a dominant display of speed and car control over 25 laps as he beat out fellow Super Late Model big names Randy Weaver and Max Blair en route to his $1,500 victory. Leading every lap, Killer put on a show out front as he grabbed the top spot on lap one and never looked back to collect the win, holding off a deep field of talent in the process. “We’ve got a really great car, and I feel like as long as we keep the fenders on our car, we’ll have a chance to win these next couple,” Bronson said. “I’ve just got to do my job, and the car’s pretty damn good.” The race was spotted with cautions, which meant Bronson was forced to deal with the pressure restacking behind him for each restart. But he handled those perfectly; it was a close call on lap nine that gave him his biggest challenge. Middleburg, FL-driver Mark Whitener had a good run going to Bronson’s inside as they dove into Turn 1. The two ended up making slight contact, which sent Whitener around right in front of the oncoming field of cars. Somehow, everyone avoided him, and Whitener rejoined the field at the tail under the ensuing caution flag. Bronson escaped unharmed and went on to win the race, while Whitener made up a ton of ground in the final 16 laps to come back and finish eighth and pick up the Hard Charger honors. “[Whitener] said he was going to go in and try to slide me there, but I was already turned down the racetrack and he hit me in the left-rear and turned himself around, I guess,” Bronson said. “We always race hard and rub a little bit, unfortunately. But that’s the way racing goes.” Despite redrawing fifth, Randy Weaver found himself with a little bit of work to do in the early going of the 25-lap Feature, as he slipped back on the opening circuit and crossed the line in ninth on lap two. But with some patience and a great car, he and his newly wrapped #116 made it all the way back up front to collect the runner-up spot. He’s traveled a long way from Titusville, PA, and there was no way Max Blair was leaving Volusia without at least one podium finish this weekend. He didn’t have to wait long, as he kept his car solidly inside the top 5 through all 25 laps to complete the podium. Winner of the race run prior to the Pro Late Models Feature, Evans, GA-native Cody Overton, was looking to climb from the back to the front over 25 laps to put the cherry atop his Thursday night. Unfortunately, his night ended on the hook, as he was on the receiving end of a nasty pile-up wreck on the initial start that forced him to retire without a single lap completed. 602 LATE MODELS - CODY OVERTON Overton did, however, take home a nice check in the first Feature of the evening for his efforts behind the wheel of his #97 602 Late Model – race he won by over three seconds ahead of runner-up Bud Chauncey and podium finisher Colton Leyendecker. Using the low line to his advantage, Lil Sexy made a great move to the inside of Bud Chauncey on lap eight to take the lead, and the win, to kick off his 2020 season in Florida. FLORIDA LATE MODELS – DAVID SHOWERS JR. For most of the 20-lap Feature race, teenage pilot Bubba Whitener seemed to have had the Thursday night Feature locked up. Until he reached lap 13. Trying to get around slower traffic on the high-side, Whitener came up on a car just before the flag stand and made heavy contact, sending the lapped car into the inside wall and severely damaging his own. Whitener went off on the hook, which handed the lead over to David Showers Jr., who took it and led the rest of the way for his first-ever Late Model victory. UP NEXT The Sunshine Nationals action continues from Volusia on Friday night with round two of racing. Hot Laps begin at 5:15pm ET on DIRTVision!
  9. Christopher Bell Charges To Victory On John Christner Trucking Qualifying Night by Bryan Hulbert TULSA, Okla. (January 16, 2020) Christopher Bell's fifth preliminary night victory in as many years, and sixth overall prelim triumph, the driver of the Tucker-Boat No. 84x was the class of the field in Thursday's John Christner Trucking Qualifying Night. DB3 photo "Man, this race...I say it time, and time again, this race literally is what motorsports means to me. This is the pinnacle for me growing up in Oklahoma. I hope that this is the race I can run the rest of my life until I can come back here owning a racecar and have another Buddy Kofoid drive for me," commented Bell, who is locked into his seventh championship A-Feature in as many years. Gridding the field sixth, Bell worked into the top three following a Lap 5 restart. Led by Thomas Meseraull, the RMS entry took off with Logan Seavey, Buddy Kofoid, and Christopher Bell in tow. Three-wide for second, Kofoid worked past the pair on the bottom of turn four with Bell adjusting his line the following lap take the position away. Running down the No. 7x in a matter of laps, Bell used high side momentum off the fourth turn on Lap 10; throwing the slide job deep into turn one to clear Meseraull for the point on Lap 11. Into traffic on Lap 17, Bell's run stalled for a moment with Meseraull closing while trying to fend off Buddy Kofoid. Picking through the backmarkers, Bell three-wide in traffic at times kept his advantage just over a second. With the white flag waving, Bell's night nearly ended as contact with a slower car all but parked the No. 84x. Able to recover with the field bearing down, Bell was still able to capture the win by 1.114 seconds. Asked how he balanced being patient while aggressive, Bell replied, "Lapped traffic was thick and they were just two by two, so honestly I just got to the point where I started riding behind them because I've taken myself out a lot here running over lapped cars and I still almost did it coming to the white flag." Thomas Meseraull picked up the final transfer to Saturday's A-Feature with Buddy Kofoid third in his first career Chili Bowl appearance. Logan Seavey crossed fourth with Shane Golobic holding on to complete the top five. With a field of 73 on hand for Thursday's John Christner Trucking Qualifying Night, the week's total car count stands at 273 with another 76 slated for Friday's Vacuworx Qualifying Night. Split into nine OERB Heat Races, the wins went to CJ Leary, Shane Golobic, Thomas Meseraull, Cory Kruseman, Tanner Berryhill, Logan Seavey, Christopher Bell, Shane Cottle, and Chance Morton. C-Features went to Cale Conley and Michelle Decker with Dave.com B-Features topped by Shane Cottle and Kyle Cummins. Team Toyota Qualifiers number four with Jason McDougal, Buddy Kofoid, Shane Golobic, and Christopher Bell earning wins. The Worldwide Technologies Raceway Flip Count jumped Thursday from 39 to 49 with all drivers able to walk away.

    Here's a release from Niece motorsports regarding Natalie Decker: Natalie Decker to Pilot No. 44 for Niece Motorsports in Partial Schedule STATESVILLE, N.C. (Jan. 16, 2020) – Natalie Decker will pilot the No. 44 Chevrolet Silverado for Niece Motorsports in the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series (NGROTS) on a part-time basis during the 2020 season. Decker will make her debut with Niece Motorsports in the first race of the 2020 season, at Daytona International Speedway. “Change is inevitable, change is expected and exciting, and change is also frightening,” said Decker. “But this year is a year I’m ready for! I have never felt so prepared with my health, in the gym, and mentally. There are so many things to be excited about working with Niece Motorsports, starting with my teammates Ross and Ty. I’m ready to learn from them and be 100% open minded going into the season!” Decker made 19 starts in the NGROTS last year for DGR Crosley. Decker joins Ty Majeski, Ross Chastain and Carson Hocevar, who will all race for Niece Motorsports in 2020. “We are excited to have Natalie join the team,” said team owner Al Niece. “Natalie has shown a lot of talent, and we are excited to see her continue to develop that at Niece Motorsports. We are certain we will put her in competitive equipment that will really give her a chance to shine.” Decker got her star racing go-karts in her native Wisconsin, where she won four track championships. From there, she made the move into full-sized stock cars. She was the CWSSA Super Stock champion out of a talented field of 35 drivers. Success continued in the Limited Late Model division, where she won one race and had two podium finishes. Next, Decker moved into the competitive Late Model ranks, completing every lap of the World Series of Stock Car Racing at Florida’s New Smyrna Speedway in 2013. Her on-track success led her to being selected to the 2013 and 2014 NASCAR Rev Racing Drive for Diversity combine. At State Park Speedway in Wisconsin, Decker had 10 fast times and seven feature races in 2014, leading her to the track championship. She was also the Rookie of the Year and finished fourth in overall points in the State Park Super Late Model division. Decker also won in the Super Late Model division at Wisconsin’s Golden Sands Speedway and on the competitive TUNDRA Super Late Model series in the upper Midwest in 2014. In 2015, Decker was selected by NASCAR to be a part of the NASCAR Drive for Diversity program, with proven race-winning team Rev Racing. She battled week-in-and-week-out against the top short track racers in the country at “The Birthplace of the NASCAR Stars,” Hickory Motor Speedway. Decker turned heads at Hickory and beyond with the Rev Racing team and also saw plenty of success with her family-operated Super Late Model at tracks from Wisconsin to Florida, with wins at Golden Sands and State Park Speedways. Decker became the first female racer to score a podium finish in the ARCA Midwest Tour. Her success in the state of Florida through the season also earned Decker the prestigious title of NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Rookie of the Year in the Sunshine State. In 2018, Decker earned the pole and finished fifth in the ARCA Racing Series at Daytona International Speedway. She finished seventh overall in the ARCA Racing Series point standings.

  12. Rico Abreu Is Five For Five On Hard Rock Casino Tulsa Qualifying Night by Bryan Hulbert TULSA, Okla. (January 15, 2020) Chasing early, then having to hold off numerous charges over the course of late-race restarts, California's Rico Abreu captured his fifth consecutive Hard Rock Casino Tulsa preliminary night victory during the Wednesday portion of the 34th annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire. Brendon Bauman photo Asked about winning his preliminary night for the fifth time, Rico replied, "It's pretty impressive. I've always come here really prepared and my team has brought really prepared race cars, but it all starts with our Heat Race; getting through that and then getting through your Qualifier." Trailing Brad Sweet early, the California drivers ran varying lines around the Tulsa Expo Raceway with Sweet low as Abreu stepped to the top. Working through early cautions, Sweet was able to fend off the Safelite AutoGlass No. 97, but as the neared the half-way point, Rico got the better of the battle and bolted into the lead on Lap 15 with a slide job off the second turn. Caution on Lap 17, the restart began a wild scramble for the runner-up spot with second through sixth trading hands in nearly every corner with Sweet getting shuffled as far down as sixth, Hahn advancing to fourth, Copeland taking second, Gravel knocked out of the top five, and all the while Rico steadily pulled away before caution lights shown again on Lap 21. Red on Lap 24 with a five-car pileup in the first two turns, all drivers escaped uninjured. Keeping Abreu in sight, Copeland worked the low side of the speedway in a bid for the lead as Blake Hahn and Brad Sweet trade sliders for the show position. Working top to bottom at either end of the track, the battle came to a head on Lap 26 as the pair collided in the fourth turn with Sweet helicoptering off the wall. Able to keep rolling, Hahn restarted third. Getting a run on the restart, Copeland pulled alongside Rico, but could not advance to the point. To the final lap, Rico kept the right rear humming on the cushion with the checkered flag dropping on a 1.104-second advantage. Letting the car drift off the bottom exiting the final turn, Colby Copeland held off Hahn by 0.141 seconds for the automatic transfer into Saturday A-Feature. Settling for third, Hahn was trailed by Chase Johnson with Sammy Swindell navigating the hub from 13th to complete the top five. With a field of 66 bringing the weekend to 200 competitors taking to the Tulsa Expo Raceway, the night's lineup was split into eight OERB Heat Races with wins going to Daniel Robinson, David Camfield, Chase Johnson, Jesse Colwell, Sammy Swindell, Rico Abreu, and Clinton Boyles. C-Features were topped by Robert Dalby and Mike Griffiths with Team Toyota Qualifiers won by Blake Hahn, Brad Sweet, Colby Copeland, and Jake Swanson. A pair of Dave.com B-Features went to Jesse Colwell and Tyler Thomas. The Worldwide Technologies Raceway Flip Count grew only slightly on Wednesday from 32 to 39 with all drivers able to walk away.

  13. Kyle Larson Unstoppable On Warren CAT Qualifying Night; Bell Tops The VIROC by Bryan Hulbert TULSA, Okla. (January 14, 2020) Picking up his sixth career preliminary night victory, and third straight since 2018, Kyle Larson battled through a myriad of cautions to win Tuesday's Warren CAT Qualifying Night during the 34th annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire. Locking into his ninth championship A-Feature since 2010, the race to that ticket became a question of fuel. "I think me and Jonathan (Beason) both were running out of fuel there at the end," explained Larson. "Mine was stumbling a lot the last five laps, so I was thankful we didn't have another caution because I don't know if I could have made it." To the lead on the cushion over the No. 8j of Jonathan Beason, the start was short-lived as Derek Hagar came to a stop in turn three. Following Larson's lead to the top of the Tulsa Expo Raceway, Kyle got away by three-tenths of a second before the Whelen Caution lights switched on again. Battle for second on the restart, Mike Hess set sights on Beason with no luck as the Broken Arrow native drove away. Railing the cushion in the tire tracks of Kyle Larson, the top two daylighted the field by 3.122 seconds before the caution displayed for Jeremy Webb who spun in the third turn. Challenged again by Hess on the restart, Beason eluded the No. 51 but was again unable to keep pace with Larson's iRacing No. 01. Continuing to be plagued by cautions, two more as the field reached lap 10 saw similar restarts with Larson keep the field at bay. Getting a run on a Lap 14 restart, Jonathan Beason looked for a hole but the charge for the lead was for not as Larson slowly pulled away. Seeing slower traffic for the first time on Lap 21, Beason was on the back bumper of Larson for the lead, but Kyle wasted little time sliding the slower machines to keep the BA Lawn and Garden No. 8j chasing. Slowed with six laps to run as Jake Bubak slammed the cushion battling for third and going over, Larson picked up right where he left off as Beason, Wight, and Faccinto battled for second with Beason holding the position. Taking the final six laps without delay, Kyle Larson crossed 2.822 seconds ahead of Jonathan Beason, who secured his sixth trip to Saturday's big dance with Michael Faccinto holding off the torrid advance of Dillon Welch, who advanced 12 positions to finish fourth. Larry Wight ended up completing the top five. Not the only feature event on the night, the VIROC saw a new winner with Christopher Bell charging from seventh in the closing laps to collect a convincing victory. Mired mid-pack early on, cautions around the race's mid-point provided the springboard for Bell to begin making moves. Going after race-long leader Sam Hafertepe, Jr. on a restart with nine laps to go, Bell's slide went unanswered as the Tucker-Boat Racing No. 84x pulled away to a 4.089 second lead at the checkered flag. Getting upside down during his qualifying run, Rico Abreu tore through the field from 14th to finish second with Sam Hafertepe, Jr. slipping to third. Kyle Larson made up four positions with C.J. Leary making up the top five. With 77 drivers checking in for Warren CAT Qualifying Night, the weekend count stands at 134. Nine Heat OERB Heat Races were won by Michael Faccinto, Kyle Larson, Jonathan Beason, Hank Davis, Hunter Schuerenberg, Larry Wight, Mike Hess, Tyler Thompson, and TJ Smith. D-Features went to Kenney Johnson and Austin Brown with C-Features topped by Kyle Hammer and Wyatt Burks. Dave.com B-Features went to Jake Bubak and Mitchel Moles. Team Toyota Qualifiers were captured by TJ Smith, Kyle Larson, Larry Wight, and Mike Hess. The Worldwide Technologies Raceway Flip Counted swelled drastically from nine to 32 with all drivers able to walk away.

  14. Tavo gets the last laugh (again)

    My distaste for CoTA is a personal thing and I am not asking anyone to understand my position or even agree with me. I have explained myself more than once and I fully understand that others may, or may not, agree with me. Just like with anything else in life or the racing world, if you enjoy events at CoTA, then, by all means, you should support it.
  15. Cannon McIntosh Rolls Undefeated On Cummins Qualifying Night by Bryan Hulbert TULSA, Okla. (January 13, 2020) Debuting with Keith Kunz Motorsports, Oklahoma's Cannon McIntosh squashed all doubts of his worth as the 17-year old driver topped his Heat Races, Qualifier, and finally held off multiple charges, cautions, and an open red to win his first career Chili Bowl Preliminary A-Feature on Cummins Qualifying Night of the 34th annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire. DB3 photo "I've been looking for a win for a long time now. We've had lots of close calls but coming not Kieth's stuff, I put a lot of pressure on myself. Those guys did good taking the pressure off of me a little bit and helping me stay calm," states McIntosh. "Coming into this race, I really just wanted to be able to make the main event. There's a lot of people that would love to do that. I never thought we'd be in Victory Lane tonight." Bolting into the lead as Aaron Reutzel and Tyler Courtney battled for second, the pair allowed Cannon to get clear by several car lengths. Wheeling the Tucker-Boat No. 87 to the top shelf, Aaron worked past McIntosh on Lap 5. Immediately adjusting his line, Cannon stayed within a few car lengths as the pair worked into traffic on Lap 10. Lap 11 spelled disaster for Reutzel as Shane Golobic slid into Ryan Leavitt just as the leader was coming up to put the pair a lap down. Sending the No. 57w flipping, Reutzel had nowhere to run as the NOS Energy Drink car landed on top of him. Advancing Cannon McIntosh back to the point, the No. 71k gapped Courtney, but the Whelen Caution Lights soon appeared. Restarting with 11 laps complete, Tyler Courtney traded sliders with Michael Pickens with Courtney able to answer every attempt by the New Zealand driver. Allowing McIntosh to open his advantage to 1.581 seconds, the Whelen Caution lights flipped on again on Lap 14. Back to the last fully completed lap, Courtney moved back to second but could not keep pace with the Bixby, Okla. driver. Slowed with 11 laps to run, Pickens took advantage of the restart but again saw his slide to the runner-up spot negated. Single file to the green on Lap 22 after Brady Bacon came to a stop in turns one and two, the restart was short-lived as Aaron Reutzel, who had fought back from 21st, made contact with Trey Marcham while battling for sixth, sending the TUHB No. 32t flipping wildly into the fence. Causing a rare open red to repair the chain link, the race resumed with Courtney and Pickens both setting sights on the lead. Able to fend off the pair, McIntosh maintained point with his advantage 0.708 seconds over Tyler Courtney with both locking into Saturday's championship event. Able to keep rolling after the crash with Marcham, Aaron Reutzel changed to the final podium step. Michael Pickens crossed fourth with Zach Daum finishing fifth. Starting off with a field of 57 drivers, Cummins Qualifying Night saw OERB Heat Races going to Cannon McIntosh, Sean McClelland, Aaron Reutzel, Riley Kreisel, Tyler Courtney, Paul Nienhiser, and Kevin Thomas, Jr. C-Features were won by Logan Scherb and Carson Garrett. Team Toyota Qualifiers went to Gary Taylor, Tony Bruce, Jr., Michael Pickens, and Cannon McIntosh. Dave.com B-Features were topped by Brady Bacon and Ryan Hall. The Worldwide Technologies Raceway Flip Counted made its way to nine with all drivers able to walk away.

    Choosing not to support a business for personal / ethical reasons is entirely different than organizing a boycott against that business, James. I understand why you, and others, choose to attend events at COTA. It's a great opportunity to witness some great racing on one of the world's most awesome road courses right in our own back yard.
