Alex Sedgwick returned to the United States this past week after an exciting change of fate for the British driver, having a sponsor come forward just in time to support his testing efforts at the Daytona International Speedway.   Greg Thomas of NBA 2K 21 notified Alex’s manager Rya

Johnston just in the nick of time that they would support Alex’s testing efforts in Daytona this past Friday and Saturday.  Alex went into “GO” mode and booked his flight, and since there was a complete lockdown in the U.K., Alex had to complete his physical and drug testing on Thursday, the day before the test began.  “Everything came together rather quickly, and miraculously, it all worked!” said Alex.

In only his second proper oval experience, Alex climbed up the speed charts on Friday by mid- afternoon to be 3rd fastest in single car runs and settling to 5th before the larger drafting packs started to go out.  “Making my first runs on the 2.5-mile superspeedway was an incredible feeling. I am used to my body leaning to the side while cornering; however, at this track, you sink in your seat because of the 31-degree banking in the corners,” said Alex.

Coming back to Daytona to drive was a dream come true for Alex, who watched as a guest of NASCAR during the Daytona 500 held last season. “Watching the Daytona 500 with my father, we both agreed that one day I would come back to race at the superspeedway, only I did not think it would be this soon,” said Alex. “I appreciate NBA 2K 21 and Greg Thomas tremendously, without their support, none of this would have happened.”

Greg Thomas, President and Co-Founder of Visual Concepts, the creator of NBA 2K 21 said, “We are pleased with Alex’s efforts during his test and we are looking forward to his rise in NASCAR.” Ryan Johnston of InterPhase Entertainment who manages Alex said, “Without NBA 2K 21 coming forward, Alex would have missed this test and would not have the opportunity to come back to compete on February 13, 2021 in the season opener.  We are in talks with top NASCAR Xfinity Series teams to place Alex in the road course races this year, as he has an enormous amount of experience racing throughout Europe and as far as Dubai.”

Alex is flying back to London from Miami this evening, hoping to come back as soon as he can, to compete in as many races in the ARCA Menards Series and NASCAR Xfinity Series races in 2021.

Troy Lee Designs / Red Bull / GASGAS Factory Racing's Justin Barcia kicked off the 2021 Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship 17-round series with a win in the 450SX Class inside Houston's NRG Stadium, marking the third time in series history an opening round was hosted in the great state of Texas. A restricted-attendance audience of 10,830 race fans, clustered in pod seating, cheered Barcia's incredible third-consecutive opening round victory. Barcia fought off Team Honda HRC's Ken Roczen for nearly the entire race while Red Bull KTM's Marvin Musquin returned to Supercross with a solid third place finish.

It had been 25 years since the Monster Energy Supercross series kicked off outside of California, and coincidentally 25 years since a rider had won three consecutive opening rounds (Jeremy McGrath in Orlando), but in Texas Justin Barcia, in his 100th Supercross start, cemented a place in the history books by grabbing the victory of what was the debut race for the GASGAS team and GASGAS Supercross machine. At the gate drop Marvin Musquin holeshot the 22 rider field, but Barcia squeezed into the lead immediately. Honda's Ken Roczen worked his way through the top five to reach second place with over seventeen minutes left on the race clock; Roczen stayed close, and with five minutes and one lap remaining launched three intense pass attempts. Barcia held his composure and track position, forcing Roczen to eventually settle for the runner-up spot.

Marvin Musquin rounded the first corner in the lead but found himself outside the top three in the early laps. At the Main Event's midpoint he made his move on Monster Energy Kawasaki's Adam Cianciarulo to regain his place in a podium position. The three former champions in the field had a tough opening round. Defending champion Monster Energy Kawasaki's Eli Tomac had a fall and an off track excursion that relegated him to thirteenth. 2019 champion Red Bull KTM's Cooper Webb steadily recovered from a bad start to earn ninth. And 2018 champion Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing's Jason Anderson spent most of the race eighth place until lap 22 of the 28 Lap Main Event when he dropped back to finish in fifteenth position.

The intense 2021 race schedule sees the riders line up again in Houston on Tuesday January 19, then again on Saturday, January 23 at the triple-header host venue NRG Stadium. The seventeen-round series, the first professional sport to complete its full series last year during the pandemic, has found a way to schedule a full season and allow limited attendance at all rounds.

Mahoning Valley Speedway’s 2021 race schedule is nearly complete with just a few minor details that remain before officially releasing the full slate of events.

The speedway is, however, proud to announce the Mahoning Valley Speedway Hall of Fame Series (MVSHoFS) will be back. After an unqualified successful debut last year in which five selected honorees where paid homage with special races, it is with great privilege that the next selection of esteemed individuals are named.

The late Bill Teel, a three-time Modified champion, the late Ward Crozier Sr., past promoter and racer, 1972 Modified champion Roger Heffelfinger Sr., Lorin Arthofer Sr., a many time winner in Modifieds and patriarch of Arthofer family of racers and Paul Bauscher, Late Model champ of 1972 and many time winner in Modified and Late Model action.

“We’re very excited to be able to follow-up on what was such an amazing run of events last year when we introduced the Hall of Fames Series,” said Mahoning promoter Keith Hoffman.

“This year will see another amazing group of people who are very deserving and I can assure you they and their families where overwhelmed and honored when we contacted them. It’s amazing how in just one year this has blossomed into such great event that both our fans and drivers are so enthusiastic about.”

Teel won Modified titles in 1988, 1990 & 2000 and also was the 2011 car owner champion with driver Tyler Haydt. Although he passed away in 2012, his popularity with fans is still as strong as ever. Teel scored career 16 wins and until last season held the record for consecutive Modified victories at four in a row. Matt Hirschman tied that mark in 2020.

Crozier is best renowned for the reopening of Mahoning Valley Speedway in 1987 following the closing of Dorney Park Speedway. He and wife Dot’s vision has become a legacy as the track will kick off its 34th consecutive season since they brought life back to the paved ¼-mile oval that prior to then had sat dormant for 10 years. Crozier is also noted for his innovative virtuosity as a promoter, evident by the packed house he was able to maintain during his tenure as the helm.

Heffelfinger, who just celebrated his 75th birthday, has been a staple at Mahoning as well as Dorney Park where he began his popular career as hard-charging wheelman. At Dorney he ranks among the top-10 of all-time winners. When Mahoning became an asphalt track in 1970 Heffelfinger quickly became one of the top runners. His son, Roger Jr., and grandson, Austin Kochenash, carried on the family success with championships and wins at not only Mahoning but numerous other tracks as well.

Arthofer Sr., is another product of Dorney Park, where he quickly established himself as a winner. When the Crozier era began at Mahoning Arthofer won early and often. More so his family including sons, daughter-in-law, granddaughters and nephew have made the Arthofer name one of the most triumphant ever at Mahoning. With a combined 123 feature race wins to date they are the winningest family at the Lehighton speedway.

Bauscher, best known as “The Flying Farmer” was as good as they got, be in a Late Model or Modified. From his earliest days of racing at Dorney Park and then on to Mahoning Valley, Bauscher was a threat each time he rolled his signature No. 91 on the track. He owns three Late Model titles at Dorney and added a Modified crown at Mahoning in 1972. He is also credited with the first Modified victory under Crozier’s reign on May 9, 1987. Bauscher continued to compete into the early 1990s and still attends weekly action at Grandview Speedway.

Matt Hirschman, who won four of the five MVSHoFS races last year, was proclaimed the champion of the inaugural series.

The 2021 season and first race of the MVSHoFS is on Saturday, April 3 with the Bill Teel Tribute. Next comes the Ward Crozier Tribute planned listed for Saturday, May 15. Race number three will be held on Saturday, June 16 featuring the Roger Heffelfinger Sr., Tribute. Next up is the Lorin Arthofer Sr., Tribute on Saturday, July 31. The finale will be held as part of the Hall of Fame Classic weekend on October 1-2, concluding on that Saturday with the Paul Bauscher Tribute.

Please log onto the official Mahoning Valley Speedway website at www.mahoningvalley-speedway.com or on Facebook at Mahoning Valley Speedway or Twitter @MahoningSpeed updated info and news. Mahoning Valley Speedway is located on PA route 443 just a few miles west of Lehighton.

There is to be NO siping (other than the pre-molded cross marks) or needling of the Hoosier tires. Light buffing is permitted, but MUST be done in a manner as to NOT create a sipe (cut/split) in the surface of the rubber. Note: Small cuts that are not consistent with a buffing pattern MAY be acceptable. Rule of thumb: If you can see it, it's too deep; if you can feel it, it is way too deep. (See the tech official for a ruling before competition).

 

Altering tires by any means of needling or chemical treating is strictly prohibited!

 

Burn-off: Newly-sanctioned speedways that previously had a crate engine Sprint Car programs will be permitted a burn-off period for previously allowed tires determined by Series Directors.

 

Speedway(s) and/or Series Officials have the ability to mandate the harder compound option on the right rear if track conditions warrant.

 

Series Officials may amend the tire rule for any event if track conditions warrant, and will inform competitors.

 

  1. WARNING: SO CAL SPORTSMAN SPRINT CAR SERIES and Hoosier Racing Tires strictly forbids any chemical alteration of the tire carcass and/or tread compound such as tire soaking or use of tread "softener". SO CAL SPORTSMAN SPRINT CAR SERIES and Hoosier Tire strictly forbids the physical defacement (removal, altering, or covering) of tire sidewall markings in any manner. Failure to comply with this warning could result in premature or catastrophic tire failure and may result in serious injury or death.
  2. Series may take physical samples of tire(s) to insure that no competitor has employed any chemicals to alter the performance of his or her tires at any time. Three samples will be taken per selected tire; samples will be taken by SO CAL SPORTSMAN SPRINT CAR SERIES or Track Official. Each sample from selected tire will be indentified as sample #1, sample #2, and sample #3. Sample #1 will be retained by Series and sent to lab; sample #2 will be given to selected tire's driver/owner; and sample #3 will be retained by Series to be utilized as a tie-breaker in the event any issues may occur with samples #1 & #2. In the event driver/owner chooses to send sample #2 to be analyzed, SO CAL SPORTSMAN SPRINT CAR SERIES must approve selected lab. Tire samples not conforming to manufacturer’s submitted factory benchmark will be deemed illegal.

 

  1. It is the driver's responsibility to know what is on their race car at all times. Any used wheels or tires that may be suspect by the driver should not be used.

 

  1. Any tire thought to be physically defaced or altered will be confiscated. While tire is in question, all money and points for that driver will be held until a ruling is made final. Any tire deemed to have been physically defaced or altered will be result in disqualification from the event (loss of money and points) along with the following:
PENALTIES FOR ILLEGAL TIRES:

Shocks may not be altered in any way; shock shafts may not be shortened nor strategically bent to seek a handling advantage, gas pressure must not have been altered, and no tampering with the pistons, seals, oil, shock body or valve stack is allowed. SO CAL SPORTSMAN SPRINT CAR SERIES competitors agree to willingly relinquish any one or all shock(s) from any position or all positions on his or her race car that comes into question to SO CAL SPORTSMAN SPRINT CAR SERIES tech officials for dyno testing and inspection to determine whether it is, or is not, a legal, unaltered shock. Shock(s) confiscated for further testing will be tagged by a numbered wire seal with Bilstein part numbers and wire seals documented on an official SO CAL SPORTSMAN SPRINT CAR SERIES Shock Confiscation form. Competitor must accept from tech officials a shock(s) of the same valving part number in return for the shock(s) relinquished.

 

If, upon dyno testing and inspection, it is determined that the gas pressure, seals, piston, oil, shock tube, rod, or valving has been altered in any way, the shock absorber will be determined illegal and SO CAL SPORTSMAN SPRINT CAR SERIES published penalties will apply.

 

SO CAL Sportsman Sprint Car Series Officials reserve the right to technically inspect exchange and/or confiscate any specified Bilstein sealed shock at any time. Failure to surrender the shock(s) and/or submit the shock(s) for inspection equals disqualification from the night's event, loss of all Series points to date, suspended from all PAS-sanctioned Series competition for 365 days, and fined $1,000.

 

Any violation of the SO CAL SPORTSMAN SPRINT CAR SERIES Bilstein spec shock rule will result in the driver being disqualified for the night's event, loss of all Series points to date, suspended from all PAS-sanctioned Series competition for 365 days, and fined $1,000.

GENERAL CAR INSPECTION:

 

All cars may be subject to technical inspection at any time. Any driver that fails to cooperate and/or allow an inspection of his car at any time will be subject to disqualification, a 45-day suspension, and $750 fine.

 

FINES, PENALTIES, SUSPENSIONS & APPEALS

 

PRE-RACE TECHNICAL VIOLATION:

If a technical violation(s) is found during pre-race technical inspection, the driver/team will be advised of the violation and must meet full compliance before being allowed to compete.

REFUSAL OF TECH

A refusal of tech and/or failure to allow an official to confiscate a part(s), other than the already previously stated individual refusal penalties/suspensions, will result in a 45-day suspension and $750 fine. All illegal parts will be confiscated.

FINES & PENALTIES:

If an entrant is disqualified for any reason, any fine and /or suspension apply to both the driver and car owner if not the same person. In other words, if an entrant is disqualified for a technical violation, such as an engine not in compliance with tech specs, neither the owner nor the driver can race for the suspension period, and while only one fine will be charged, neither party can race until that fine is paid. Fine must be paid in full to Series by cash or certified check in order to compete once suspension period ends. NOTE: If suspension includes 'a number of days' clause and occurs at the end of the season when no additional events exist, suspension will carry over to the following year beginning with the first actual event.

EVENT SUSPENSIONS:

Driver/Owner suspended for any infraction will carry over to any other divisions and will preclude driver/owner from competing at ANY event until suspension is lifted.

MULTIPLE INFRACTIONS:

In the event driver and/or car is disqualified in post-race tech for the same technical rules infraction twice (excluding engines within the sealing system, tires, fuel, and shocks, springs, suspensions rules- see each rule for specific penalties), driver and car will be suspended for 7 days from all events. Each successive infraction will carry an additional 7-day suspension. In the event an entrant fails technical inspection for multiple infractions that each carry a suspension and/or fine at the same event, suspension and/or fine will compound and accumulate with each infraction.

LEGALITY OF PARTS:

If SO CAL SPORTSMAN SPRINT CAR SERIES DIRECTOR or Track Tech Official is unsure of the legality of a part, said part will be sent to GM or to SO CAL SPORTSMAN SPRINT CAR SERIES Office for inspection. At this time, finishing position will be frozen until legality of the said part is determined. In the event of a disqualification, finishing position, points and monies would be adjusted accordingly. ALL ILLEGAL PARTS WILL BE CONFISCATED & DESTROYED! Not allowing confiscating of parts is considered "cheating within the bolts" and said penalties will be imposed.

FINALITY OF DECISIONS AND INTERPRETATIONS AND COVENANT NOT TO SUE:

The decisions of Track Officials or promoter at an event, including the interpretation and application of rules and the scoring of positions, shall be FINAL, BINDING, and NON-APPEALABLE, except in the case of a suspension or fine, which is further explained in the SUSPENSIONS/FINES & APPEALS category.

 

All participants, as a condition of participating in an event, agree that ALL decisions of officials or the promoter, regarding the interpretation and application of the rules, and the scoring of positions, shall be NON-LITIGABLE. All participants further covenant and agree that they will NOT initiate any of legal action against Oval Entertainment, LLC dba Perris Auto Speedway or Ventura Raceway, the promoter, and officials to challenge such decision, to seek monetary damages, to seek injunctive relief, or to seek any kind of legal remedy. If a participant pursues any such legal action, which violates this provision, then the participant and/or owner expressly agrees to reimburse Oval Entertainment, LLC dba Perris Auto Speedway or Ventura Raceway, for ALL of its ATTORNEY FEES and COSTS IN DEFENDING AGAINST SUCH LEGAL ACTION.

SO CAL SPORTSMAN SPRINT CAR SERIES DIRECTORS will make judgment on the sanctions, and violator(s) will be sent official notice by a certified letter, return receipt requested.

PAS/Venture Raceway PR

Kyle Bronson’s dominance at Volusia Speedway Park’s Sunshine Nationals continued Saturday night with an unexpected win.

 

Michael Page was initially declared the winner of the DIRTcar Pro Late Model Feature, beating everyone to the checkered flag first, but faced a disqualification following a post-race technical inspection.

 

It was determined by DIRTcar and Crate Racin’ USA officials that Page’s car had a valve spring installation height infraction, nullifying his victory. Upon a passing inspection of Bronson’s engine, Bronson was awarded the $10,000 check and declared the Feature winner.

 

“Anytime you can make some money, it’s always good. You hate to win ‘em that way, but we all know how these deals are going in. You’ve got to be 100 percent right,” Bronson said.

 

Mack McCarter was determined the overall Sunshine Nationals mini-series champion of the Pro Late Model division after back-to-back second-place finishes, beating Bronson 140 to 135 points over the two contested races.

 

Bronson began his charge to the front from outside the third row, using the early caution flags to his advantage by doing some of his passing work on the restarts. By Lap 6, he had cracked the top-three and was hot on the trail of second-place Joseph Joiner and leader Page.

 

Bronson was able to get by Joiner on Lap 13, setting him up for a charge through lapped traffic in pursuit of Page, who was a few car-lengths ahead. Bronson was able to close the gap to just over .3 seconds before Page pulled away again, and a final yellow was displayed with just eight laps remaining.

 

When the checkered fell, Bronson was unable to get ahead of Page at the stripe, leaving him with a runner-up finish but only for a few hours. Page’s technical inspection wrapped up after midnight on Sunday; Bronson passed his and was declared the winner in the early morning hours.

 

This victory now makes four Feature wins in five starts for the Brandon, FL-native in Sunshine Nationals Pro Late Model competition after sweeping all three Features last year, and two total on the weekend after his World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series triumph Thursday night.

 

“We won $10,000, motor got torn down and was 100 percent right and everything passed. So, I’m more than happy with it. We won two races this week for $20,000 and it’s going to help us pay for Speedweeks a little bit,” Bronson said.

 

Outside of Victory Lane was another unsung hero, making his Sunshine Nationals and Volusia Speedway Park debut, and he did not disappoint. Twenty-seven-year-old Mack McCarter put on a dazzling display of passing on both nights in his first-ever appearance, coming all the way from 20th to cross the line in third Saturday. He was later awarded a second-place finish following Page’s disqualification.

 

McCarter, of Gatlinburg, TN, was awarded Hard Charger honors on both nights, passing 17 cars Thursday en route to his runner-up finish and 18 cars (17 on-track) Saturday. As impressive as the run was, he knew he may have had something for the leader had he started farther forward.

 

“Our racecar is really good when [the track] blows off and gets kinda dirty,” McCarter said. “We qualified really well but the invert put us behind in the Heat and we didn’t tighten-up enough. I think if we would have started up front, I would’ve had a good shot to run, and possibly have won.”

 

Overall, McCarter was pleased with his performance and that of his crew and car builder. Considering he made his first-ever laps on the track just two days prior, coming out of the weekend with two runner-up finishes and an overall mini-series title wasn’t too shabby.

 

“Just to come down here and run with these guys like Kyle Bronson, outrun him Thursday night and then finish behind him tonight, it just speaks volumes to where our team is,” McCarter said.

DIRTcar Series PR

It took 13-years for Kyle Larson to win the Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire, but it only took one to add a second Golden Driller to his trophy case as the California shoe led start to finish in Saturday’s 55-lap championship event.
 
Not without challenge, Larson had to fend off the charge of Justin Grant numerous times and Christopher Bell in the closing laps.
 
“To get two of these feels awesome,” said Larson as his son, Owen, hand-delivered the Golden Driller. “It was a different race than last year, but just thankful to get the chance to even come race here. I think a lot of us thought maybe we wouldn’t get to come run the Chili Bowl with the pandemic going on, so hats off to Emmett Hahn and everyone else with this event. It’s the greatest event in the world, and very lucky to be a part of it.”
 
Stalked by Grant through the opening laps, the NOS Energy Drink No. 2j took a look a few times. Diamonding off the fourth turn on Lap 15 with a run, caution lights greeted the field as Kyle Cummins slowed with a flat tire. Pulling away from Grant on the restart, the MAVTV No. 01 found traffic on Lap 26. Putting a trio of slower cars between himself and Grant, the No. 2j was about to have his hands full as Christopher Bell rolled up just as the caution waved again.
 
Rolling back to green with 37 laps to run, Larson put time on the field.
 
Taking second from Justin on Lap 46, Christopher Bell closed rapidly. On the back bumper of Larson with five laps to go, Bell turned under Larson off the fourth turn after Kyle biked the car on the cushion. Keeping the iRacing No. 84x to his rear, the field went back single-file when Blake Hahn spun on Lap 51.
 
Full assault on Larson on the restart, Bell began looking for a hole, but it was not to be as the cushion bit in turn three and sent Christopher flipping violently into the fence. Bell was uninjured.
 
Advancing Grant back to second, Justin took a shot at Larson on the restart but was unable to clear and instead slammed the cushion. Forcing the field to hit the brakes, Tyler Courtney ended up getting crossed up and going over.
 
Green, white, checkered for the Golden Driller, Larson set sail by 1.246-seconds.
 
Justin Grant crossed second with Tanner Thorson moving up eight spots to third. Cannon McIntosh was fourth with Owasso’s Daryn Pittman coming in as the night’s Hard Charger with a run from 20th to fifth.
 
Chris Windom moved from 14th to sixth with Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. seventh. Up 11 spots, Brad Sweet made it to eighth. Spencer Bayston made up six positions to ninth, with Logan Seavey wheeling 17th to tenth.
 
A total of 309 drivers were on hand for the 35th annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire. Saturday’s run of events included 25 Feature events starting with the double M-Features. The Pole Dash added four rounds to the overall Saturday event count. The night’s overall Hard Charger was Jason McDougal, who advanced position 54 times through six rounds (I-Feature through the D-Feature) of the Alphabet Soup.
 
The 2021 Chili Bowl Rookie of the Year was Oklahoma’s Daison Pursley with a 10th place finish in the first Dave.com B-Feature. The World Wide Technology Raceway Flip Count made it to 69. All drivers were ok.

Kyle Larson led all 50 laps but needed to hold off late charges by Christopher Bell and Justin Grant to win Saturday night’s 35th annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals. The win is the second straight Chili Bowl victory for Larson.

Grant would finish second and Tanner Thorson placed third as Toyota-powered drivers swept the three podium finishes for the second year in a row.

Starting from the pole, Grant pulled out to the lead on lap one, but a caution came out resulting in a complete restart. As the field came back to the green, Larson would assume the top spot running the high side with Grant running second and Bell in third.

Grant made a number of runs at Larson but couldn’t complete a pass as the top three stayed intact throughout much of the race. Behind them, Thorson was the driver on the move climbing from the 11th starting position into the top five on lap 30. 

As the laps began to wind down, Bell began to make his move, overtaking Grant for second on lap 46 and then quickly closing on Larson. The two leaders began to hit heavy traffic before the yellow waived with four laps remaining.

On the restart, Bell would make repeated attempts to pass on laps 52 and 53, pulling up side-by-side with Larson, but couldn’t complete the pass. Finally, he went high into turn four, but hit the curb, flipping his car and bringing the field to a halt. He would eventually place 14th.

That would set up a green/white/checker situation with Grant moving up to second, followed by Thorson and Cannon McIntosh.  Grant made his move on the green flag but wasn’t able to stick it on the high side into one, bobbling and almost going over. He was able to save it, but it ended bottling up traffic behind him with Tyler Courtney flipping to bring out another caution flag. 

On the final restart, it was all Larson as he went on to take the checkered flag, followed by Grant, Thorson and McIntosh as Toyota-powered cars took the top four finishing positions.  

Overall, Toyota had a program best 14 drivers qualify for the 24-car A Main feature on Saturday with Chris Windom (sixth), Brad Sweet (eighth) and Spencer Bayston (ninth) also finishing in the top 10.

This year’s Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals featured more than 300 entries.

With slower traffic becoming a major factor in the closing laps, California’s Justin Grant managed to hold off the charge of Kyle Cummins and Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. for his fourth career Chili Bowl preliminary night victory since 2017 on Friday’s Driven2SaveLives Qualifying Night.
 
“I had them side-by-side like six rows deep just trying to pick my way through and about had one guy slide me back on the last lap,” chuckled a nearly out of breath Justin Grant of the closing laps and trying to keep point on the field.
 
Leading from the start, Grant kept several restart challenges in his tire tracks. Going caution-free from Lap 11 to the checkered flag, Grant entered traffic with a 3.213-second advantage on Lap 24. Mired in traffic through the closing five laps, Kyle Cummins was closing fast.
 
Within car lengths, as the white flag came into view, the NOS Energy No. 2J managed to hold the Glenn Styres - Jack Yeley Racing No. 3g to a 0.552-second disadvantage at the checkered flag.
 
“I knew we had a pretty good lead looking up at the board, and I felt good, then started getting tight on the curb, but fortunately, traffic made me hustle, get the right rear tire stood back up, and start hitting my marks,” stated Grant. “I saw Kyle coming on the board and knew it was time to stop being patient and start moving them out of the way.”
 
After suffering a DNF in the eighth Fatheadz Eyewear Heat Race, Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. had elbows up as the Driven2SaveLives No. 17s tore through the field from the C-Feature to missing the lock into Saturday’s A-Feature by 0.164-seconds after advancing 31 times.
 
Like Stenhouse, Nevada’s Tanner Thorson had to rebound from a DNF in the opening Heat Race. Becoming the night’s Hard Charger in the A-Feature with 16 positions gained through the A-Feature, Thorson advanced 29 times overall. Challenging for second early, Daryn Pittman crossed fifth.
 
Damion Gardner in sixth was chased by Chili Bowl Rookie Jesse Love. Aaron Reutzel crossed eighth with J.J. Yeley, from the B-Feature, making up eight spots to ninth. As high as third through the Feature’s mid-point, the No. 68 of Ronnie Gardner ended up tenth.
 
With 64 Drivers making the call for Friday’s Driven2SaveLives Qualifying Night, the 35th annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire saw a total of 309 Drivers officially draw in out of 320 entries received.
 
Fatheadz Eyewear Heat Races went to Hunter Schuerenberg, Jesse Love, Anthony Nicholson, Kasey Kahne, Kyle Cummins, Brent Beauchamp, and Justin Allgaier. C-Feature wins went to Chris Tarrant and Michelle Decker, with Team Toyota Qualifiers going to Ronnie Gardner, Jesse Love, Bill Balog, and Damion Gardner. Dave.com B-Features were won by J.J. Yeley and Ricky Stenhouse, Jr.
 
The 35th annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire concludes on Saturday, January 16m 2021. The River Spirit Expo Center opens at 8:00 A.M. with Hot Laps on track at 10:00 A.M. (CT). The first event of the day will be a pair of M-Features. A limited number of Pit Passes will be available to the General Public. The Booth opens with the building.
 
Reminder to all who attend that masks are required while inside the River Spirit Expo Center.

Starting from the outside of the front row, Justin Grant powered into the lead heading into the first turn and never relinquished the lead on the way to winning the Friday’s Driven 2 Save Lives Qualifying Night feature event to advance to Saturday’s A Main feature at the 35th annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals. 

The victory gave Toyota a sweep of the week’s preliminary night feature events. In addition, Toyota drivers earned eight of the 10 positions that advanced directly into Saturday night’s feature event where the manufacturer will be looking for its seventh consecutive Chili Bowl win.

Grant, in his first race with the RMS Racing team, was dominant throughout the 30-lap event, going straight to the lead running the high side into turn one on the opening lap. From there on out, only yellow flags were able to slow him through much of the race as he stretched his lead out to more than three seconds on multiple occasions. He would run into heavy lapped traffic late in the race, but was able to maneuver anywhere on the track in dicing between them, despite a rear tire that was losing air pressure in the late going.

“RMS brought a bunch of great race cars and I think every one of us finished in the top-five in the A Mains this week,” said Grant. “I’m proud to be out there representing NOS Energy Drinks, Delco Wheels and everyone on our car. The Toyota motor screams in that thing. They absolutely rip. We were pretty fast out of the gate and we kept fine-tuning all week.  We were really good there in the feature. We were pretty comfortable, but when we got into lapped traffic, it got pretty thick.” 

Tanner Thorson turned in some of the most impressive drives of the day in finishing fourth, despite flipping his car early in the opening heat race. The Dave Mac Motorsports driver started the C Main from the fifth spot and climbed up to third to advance to the B, where he went from 15th to second to advance to the A Main. He then proceeded to charge from the 20th position all the way up to second to earn a spot in tomorrow’s B Main.

Also earning top-10 finishes were Jesse Love, who celebrated his 16th birthday on Thursday, and Aaron Reutzel, who earned seventh and eighth, respectively.

This year’s Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals features 309 entries - each fighting for one of the 24 openings in Saturday night’s “A Main” feature event.
