  1. Brad Sweet Unstoppable At Merced Speedway With The Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series Bryan Hulbert – MERCED, Cali. (March 7, 2020) Earning the right of the front row for Friday’s SawBlade.com A-Feature at Merced Speedway, Brad Sweet clawed his way to the lead and never looked back for his fourth career victory with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network. Devin Mayo photo On his run to the checkered flag, Sweet stated, “Biggest thing was getting out front, working through lapped traffic, and avoiding a couple of close calls, and obviously holding off a fast closing Shane Golobic but I can’t thank the Mains enough. This one is for Kyle. We lost him last year and this was his true passion, so this is really neat.” Getting the run over Andy Forsburg for the top spot, Sweet steadily worked away from the field as Blake Hahn worked into second. Giving chase into traffic, Hahn closed on the No. 35m while Shane Golobic stalked the pair. Working the low line of the quarter-mile through turns one and two, Golobic got the run for second as the trio diced through heavy slower traffic. With Sweet in sight, the caution brought the run to a halt on Lap 15. In clean air on the restart, Sweet again started inching away from the field before the caution lights came on again on Lap 19. Again, able to keep the NOS Energy Drink No. 17x at bay, Sweet’s night nearly went sideways on Lap 24 when Grant Dunkerkin got wadded up in the turn-four cushion; sending the No. 67G on its side directly in the path of the No. 35m. Able to avoid, the final six revolutions were quick for the Grass Valley driver as he opened his run to 1.394 seconds over Shane Golobic with Blake Hahn holding off Carson Macedo in the closing laps for third. Macedo in fourth was trailed by Andy Forsburg to complete the top five. Ryan Bernal to a sixth-place finish with Roger Crockett seventh. Blake Carrick made up the most ground from 14th to eighth with Dominic Scelzi posting his third top-ten in as many races to take over the point’s lead with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network. Alex Hills held on to complete the top ten. A field of 51 drivers assembled for the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network debut at Merced Speedway. The fifth California oval to host the series, Brad Sweet is the seventh different winner in eight previous trips to the “Golden State”. Six SCE Gaskets Heat Races were topped by Michael Faccinto, Brad Sweet, Justyn Cox, Tanner Carrick, Thomas Kennedy, and Andy Forsberg. Hoosier Tire Qualifier wins went to Blake Hahn, Shane Golobic, Justin Sanders, and Dominic Scelzi. BMRS B-Features was won by Chase Johnson and Justyn Cox.

  2. The VIROC Gets Revamped For 2020 Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals Presented by General Tire by Bryan Hulbert TULSA, Okla. (December 4, 2019) Looking to shake things up with the Vacuworx Invitational Race of Champions (VIROC), the 2020 edition will get a new format and eligibility requirements. Contested during Tuesday night action at the Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire, in years past the requirements for eligibility rested on being a past driver champion of the Chili Bowl or driving for a past owner champion. Starting in 2020, a driver's past performance, both at the Chili Bowl and with select Sprint Car and Midget sanctioning bodies, will dictate whether they are invited to compete. For the 2020 VIROC. here is how you make the cut. Drivers finishing in the Top 3 of Saturday night's A-Feature during the previous five Chili Bowls will be eligible. Drivers finishing in the Top 2 of the past five VIROC events will be eligible. Preliminary Night Winners from the most recent Chili Bowl will be eligible. Series Champions from the most recent calendar year in the World of Outlaws Sprint Cars, American Sprint Car Series National Tour, All-Star Circuit of Champions, USAC National Midgets, USAC National Sprint Cars, and POWRi National Midget League will be invited to compete. No Driver substitutions or alternates from a sanctioning body will be allowed. Starting Lineup for the VIROC will be set by Group Qualifying. Drivers will draw for their qualifying position, then qualify in groups of three to four. Drivers will get two warmup laps, then three green flap laps to set their time. The Top 8 fastest will be inverted with ninth fastest on back lined up straight up by their time. VIROC Feature will be 25 Laps. "We've been wanting to change the VIROC for a few years now, and have been looking at different ways to do that where your top drivers and champions are still in, but it allows new drivers to compete as well, and going back five years and using those results, that gives us a good mix, and then also, adding in the different series champions gives these guys something to race for all year," explained Chili Bowl co-founder, Emmett Hahn. For the 2020 VIROC, the following drivers are invited to complete: Drivers invited based on A-Feature performance (2015-2019): Christopher Bell - 2017-2019 Chili Bowl Champion Daryn Pittman - Runner-up, 2017 Chili Bowl Nationals Spencer Bayston - Third Place, 2018 Chili Bowl Nationals Damion Gardner - Third Place, 2015 Chili Bowl Nationals Zach Daum - Third Place, 2016 Chili Bowl Nationals Drivers invited based on 2019 Prelim Night Victory Logan Seavey - Monday Night Winner Kyle Larson - Tuesday Night Winner Rico Abreu - Wednesday Night Winner Justin Grant - Friday Night Winner Drivers invited based on VIROC performance (2015-2019) Tanner Thorson - 2019 VIROC Winner Chad Boat - 2018 VIROC Winner Sammy Swindell - 2015 VIROC Winner Drivers invited based on 2019 Series Championship Winners Brad Sweet - 2019 NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws Champion Sam Hafertepe, Jr. - 2019 Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour Champion Aaron Reutzel - 2019 Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions Jesse Colwell - POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League Champion Tyler Courtney - USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget Champion C.J.

  4. First Look: 2014 Chili Bowl Qualifying Nights TULSA, Okla. (January 6, 2014) - There is no such thing as an easy night at the Chili Bowl. With 285 entries for the twenty-eight edition of the world's largest indoor Midget race, it's a sure bet that even the "E" Mains on Saturday will stack up like "A" Features anywhere else. Among the list of 285 entries are 274 confirmed drivers of which 58 are past feature starters, 64 are Chili Bowl Rookies, and six who have already earned the coveted Golden Driller with each one looking for the advantage. Being that the Tulsa Expo Raceway is ripped up, and rebuilt every year, that "hopeful" advantage comes, for some, in the form of the Speedway Motors Tulsa Shootout. Contested this past weekend, the lineup of 513 drivers showed 23 Chili Bowl entrants, including four-time and defending Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Champion, Kevin Swindell, who circled the Tulsa Expo Raceway 154 green-flag laps after competing in four divisions of Micro Sprint Cars. Looking to even out to around 70 drivers per night, the breakdown of drivers per night is listed at the following: Warren CAT Tuesday Night Qualifier - http://www.chilibowl.com/entries/manual.aspx River Spirit Casino Wednesday Night Qualifier - http://www.chilibowl.com/entries/manual.aspx?c=1158 John Christner Trucking Thursday Night Qualifier - http://www.chilibowl.com/entries/manual.aspx?c=1159 Vacuworx Global Friday Night Qualifier - http://www.chilibowl.com/entries/manual.aspx?c=1160 Nightly breakdowns are subject to change without notice. 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. General Admission seating is available along the back straight-a-way and can be accessed with the purchase of a Pit Pass.
