TULSA, Okla. — The 2018 Chili Bowl Breakfast of Champions will take place on Friday, January 12 at the Fair Meadows, located just east of the River Spirit Expo Center.

The event, which gives attendees the chance to eat breakfast with some of racing’s biggest stars and legends, while benefiting the work that was began by one of its greatest ambassadors, runs from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. CT.

Produced by Bart Stevens with, tickets for the event go on sale on Oct. 2 from Cost is $100 per person, and money goes to benefit Bryan Clauson Racer’s For Autism.

“It looks like we should have nearly all of the drivers who are still with us today present, as well as Bryan’s father, Tim Clauson to sit, meet, and eat with everyone who wants to participate. It’s just a unique opportunity gives fans a chance to sit down and actually have breakfast with a past champion of the Chili Bowl Midget Nationals,” said Stevens, who also coordinates the Racer’s Reunion.

Using Indy as a point of inspiration, the event is tailored to be like Legends Day at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway prior to the running of the Indianapolis 500.

“You know, what Bryan started with the Racer’s For Autism is something that we want to keep supporting and this is just another way we can give back to someone who left such a mark on this sport and what’s great about the Chili Bowl is we have the facilities just across the street to get this done, so it’s not like you’re having to go across town during rush hour,” commented Chili Bowl co-founder Emmett Hahn.

The 32nd annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire takes place at the Tulsa Expo Raceway, located inside the River Spirit Expo Center. Races are January 9-13, 2018.
