(January 11, 2021) – The pursuit for the 2021 Golden Driller trophy in the 35th Annual Chili Bowl Nationals gets underway tonight. Last year it was Kyle Larson who broke through to capture his first Chili Bowl victory. The field this year is loaded with talented drivers who have never got to stand on the stage Saturday night and hoist the most coveted trophy in midget racing.

One driver who has been close but hasn’t closed the deal is the driver from Indianapolis, IN and will once again be behind the wheel of the Clauson-Marshall Racing 7C machine sponsored by NOS Energy Drink. Tyler Courtney, the driver dubbed “Sunshine” is entering the week after a strong showing in the Tulsa Shootout just over a week ago. Tyler did not win during the Tulsa Shootout but competed in four classes and was the man on the move in two top classes. He brought home a runner up in Non-Wing and third place finish in the Winged Outlaws. This should be a confidence builder Courtney moves his focus to the midget this week in Tulsa.

Other story lines to follow on Monday night will be the sixteen rookies that will make their debut on the big stage in Tulsa. Last year, Cannon McIntosh took the opening night win and will be in action on Monday night. It will be interesting to see if he can put the Keith Kunz Motorsports machine back on the podium with a qualifying night win. NASCAR driver Chase Briscoe will look to try and lock himself into the A-main on Saturday night, as well as past Chili Bowl Champion Tim McCreadie. Last weekends announcer Clinton Boyles will look to put the Ram Racing team in the show. USAC Champion Chris Windom looks to put himself in a place to make it back to his familiar spot of competing for the Saturday night prize. Other standouts to keep your eyes on will be World of Outlaw and soon to be NASCAR truck driver David Gravel, CJ Leary, Carson Macedo and Oklahoma home state boy Blake Hahn.

One thing certain is we are in for a treat this week as we see the best drivers in the nation come together under one roof.
