TULSA, Okla. (December 1, 2017) With under 40 days until the green flag drops on the Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire, the first wave of entries has been revealed with 148 received so far for the 32nd edition of the “Mecca of Micros”, happening January 9-13, 2018 at the Tulsa Expo Raceway, located inside the River Spirit Expo Center.

While some of the listed entries are still in search of drivers, eight of those will be revealed at the coming Performance Racing Industries Trade Show in Indianapolis, Indiana as Clauson-Marshall Racing is slated to bring a star-studded lineup to battle for the coveted Golden Driller. In 2017, Clauson-Marshall Racing put four of their six drivers into Saturday’s A-Feature.
Among Chili Bowl Champions on the list, Tracy Hines and Sammy Swindell are the only two thus far.
For Hines, his 2018 attempt marks the 22nd consecutive time the Indiana native has entered the Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire. In 21 previous runs, Hines has made the call for Saturday’s A-Feature 14 times.
Swindell’s 28th appearance at the Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire since 1987, the five-time champion will not be alone as New Zealand’s Michael Pickens has been tabbed to pilot the Kevin Swindell Racing No. 39. Pickens has five A-Feature starts to his credit.
An overall count thus far of 16 A-Main starters and 19 Chili Bowl Rookies, one driver stands out among all on this year’s list of Chili Bowl Rookies. Much like Donny Schatz one year ago, the title is Rookie seems off, but nevertheless, Ohio’s Danny Smith will make his first appearance behind the wheel of a Chili Bowl Midget in 2018 for Landon Simon Racing. A member of the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame, Smith stated in an interview announcing the partnership that his last attempt at Midget racing was for Tracy Hines’ father in New Zealand in 1982.
