With entries rolling in, the traditional benchmark of 100 contenders has been exceeded, allowing for the first glimpse of Golden Driller hopefuls who will call Tulsa home during the 36th annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl National presented by General Tire.
Two past champions, 19 former A-Feature starters, 22 Chili Bowl Rookies, 28 drivers making double-digit appearances, and nine seats yet to be filled currently help make up the list of 121 entries. Opening on November 10, 2021, the first entry received was NASCAR’s Alex Bowman, which included Jake Swanson and C.J. Leary. The initial three entries were followed quickly by WRG Director of Broadcast & Technology, Brian Dunlap owned seats for Gary Taylor and Casey Shuman.
Recently amending the long-standing age restriction, the field’s youngest competitor to be approved thus far 13 year old, Gavan Boschele. Wins in Micro and POWRi National Midget competition in 2021, Boschele will be at the wheel of a Keith Kunz Motorsports entry.
