(January 14, 2021 from Tulsa, OK) – Tonight Christopher Bell will look to add to his golden driller collection by locking himself into Saturday night’s main event. The three-time Chili Bowl Nationals winner won the race of champions on Tuesday night and like usual Bell has shown a lot of speed in the Tulsa Expo Center. His previous Chili Bowl wins came behind the wheel of the Keith Kunz Motorsport machines, this week he looks for this first under the Chad Boat and Bell team.

The field tonight once again is filled with numerous rookies, thirteen to be exact. A couple rookies we will have our eyes on tonight will be NASCAR driver Garrett Smithley and the 2020 DIRTcar National Modified Champion Nick Hoffman. The ace behind his own Elite Chassis in the modified ranks will try his first attempt at the Chili Bowl. It is something the Mooresville, NC driver has always wanted to do. His ties to Millbridge Speedway and well known open wheel drivers helped make it possible. He will wheel the 2H entry fielded by RAMS Racing.

Other drivers that should be a threat tonight of stealing a lock-in spot will be Spencer Bayston, Andrew Felker, Brady Bacon, Joe B. Miller and Zeb Wise. Micheal Kofoid in the Keith Kunz entry could be a sleeper, the guy had a sensational 2020 and picked up several wins. Also the Swindell entry of Logan Seavey will be a serious threat. The Swindell’s are no stranger to victory in Tulsa and with the grown experience of Seavey, this could be a recipe that could be a serious contender for the Golden Driller on Saturday night.

Once again tonight’s action will be on FloRacing, they will go LIVE at 4pm CT with hotlaps. Click here to watch….http://share.flosports.tv/SHA2. You can also follow us here or on Twitter for up to the minute lineups and results.
