TULSA, Okla. — Five-time Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals champion Sammy Swindell headlines the drivers looking to qualify for the 32nd edition of the event Wednesday night at Tulsa Expo Raceway.

Swindell will once again pilot his own No. 1 midget during Hard Rock Casino Night as he looks to capture a record sixth Chili Bowl triumph during Saturday’s finale inside the River Spirit Expo Center.

He’ll be joined Wednesday by a star-studded group of drivers, including nine-time World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series champion Donny Schatz and two-time Chili Bowl winner Rico Abreu.

Schatz is back for his second attempt at the Chili Bowl with Clauson-Marshall Racing after debuting last season and earning Chili Bowl Rookie of the Year honors. Abreu returns with Keith Kunz Motorsports after taking the end of the 2017 season off to recover following a violent crash at Ohio’s Eldora Speedway in October.

Travis Berryhill, who won a preliminary feature during last year’s Chili Bowl, USAC sprint car champion Chris Windom, former USAC Triple Crown winner J.J. Yeley, Tulsa Shootout kingpin Jason McDougal and Kevin Thomas Jr. will also be in Wednesday night’s field.

Other contenders on night two will include Chase Stockon, Ryan Robinson, Brady Bacon, late model ace Brian Shirley, World of Outlaws driver Parker Price-Miller, IRA sprint car champion Bill Balog and Tyler Thomas.
