January 12, 2021 – Tonight is one of the biggest nights of the week for the Chili Bowl Nationals. The yearly race of champions will take place, as well as the defending champion Kyle Larson will take to the track in his qualifying night. Last year, after many heartbreaking finishes Kyle got to hoist the golden driller trophy and relish in the biggest win of his career.

Kyle will face off with a tough field of competition tonight as he will look to lock himself into the Saturday night A-main. There has been a trend the past several years of drivers repeating as winners of the prestigious event. Kevin Swindell won the event four years straight from 2010 to 2013. Rico Abreu took 2015 and 2016. Then Christopher Bell won three straight from 2017 to 2019. Kyle will look to continue the trend with a qualifying night win in Tulsa tonight.

There will be many gunning for the driver dubbed “Yung Money.” Standout drivers like “T-Mez” Thomas Meseraull and Jonathan Beason are a couple of names that jump out on the entry list for Tuesday night. Some Chili Bowl veterans that always mix it up are slated for tonight as well. Drivers like Shane Cottle and Zach Daum have had good runs in the past and always need a set of eyes on them. There is also eighteen rookies making their Tulsa debut this weekend in the 35th Annual Chili Bowl. Other drivers to watch will be Daison Pursley, Shane Golobic, Cole Bodine, Tanner Carrick & Anton Hernandez.
