Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Saturday Feature Lineups

THE KRUSE-MAN: Cory Kruseman won Friday night’s E3 Spark Plugs Qualifier main event at the QuikTrip Center’s Tulsa Expo Raceway’s 24th Annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals in Tulsa, OK.

TULSA, Okla. (January 16, 2010) – A total of 256 competitors from 28 different states as well as New Zealand, Australia and Canada have battled it out atop the QuikTrip Center’s ¼-mile Tulsa Expo Raceway clay oval over the past four nights at the 24th Annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals.

And now the stage is set for Saturday’s Rockstar Energy Drink slate of championship feature events that includes 20 races.

After initial hot lap sessions at 11:15 a.m., the day’s official racing action begins at 12:00 noon with the “K” Main.  Twin “J” Mains, twin “I” Mains, twin “H” Mains, etc., will follow, ultimately culminating with Saturday night’s 50-lap Chili Bowl championship main event.

A dozen drivers have already earned starting berths for Saturday’s finale including Tuesday night Warren CAT winner Zach Daum, Wednesday night River Spirit Casino winner Kevin Swindell, Thursday night Bully Dog winner Darren Hagen and Friday night E3 Spark Plugs winner Cory Kruseman along with the second and third-place winners from each night.

The remaining twelve feature positions will be determined by Saturday’s hearty serving of an alphabet soup of feature events.

Those already locked in include, listed in order of past Chili Bowl championship feature starts:

#5 Jerry Coons, Jr. (Tucson, AZ) – 11th start in 14 tries and his seventh in a row, last year’s fourth-place finish is the best of three top-tens.

#21k Cory Kruseman (Ventura, CA) – 9th start in 14 tries and first since 2006, wins in 2000 and 2004 were among six podium finishes from 1999 to 2006.

#17b Brad Kuhn (Avon, IN) – 5th start in 9 tries and fifth in a row, a third-place finish last year trumped his fourth-place run in 2006.

#71 Cole Whitt (Alpine, CA) – 3rd start in 6 tries for the 18-year-old, improved from 13th in 2008 to 8th in 2009.

#13 Danny Stratton (Indianapolis, IN) – 2nd start in 7 tries, rallied from a “D” Main to finish 7th in 2004.

#39 Kevin Swindell (Germantown, TN) – 2nd start in 6 tries, was 6th in 2008 and was contending for a preliminary win last year until a late-race incident marred his Bowl experience.

#88nz Michael Pickens (Auckland, New Zealand) – 2nd start in 2 tries, finished sixth as a Chili Bowl rookie in 2005 and makes it two-for-two in feature starts after globetrotting to a runner-up finish on Tuesday night.

#5d Zach Daum (Pocahontas, IL) – 1st start in 5 tries, the 18-year-old cracked the field by winning Tuesday’s feature after missing last year’s championship finale by just a pair of positions.

#3 Darren Hagen (Riverside, CA) – 1st start in 5 tries, climbs to “A” Main after ending in a Saturday “B” Main last year.

#1T Tony Roney (Herculaneum, MO) – 1st start in 4 tries, the darkhorse contender of this year’s Chili Bowl just further proves that it can be done.

#39c Shane Golobic (Fremont, CA) – 1st start in 3 tries, outshines teammate/car owner and National Midget Driver of the Year Bryan Clauson who starts six rows deep in a Saturday “B” Main, at least in preliminary action.

#19nz Brad Mosen (Auckland, New Zealand) – Made it in his first time to become the first rookie to crack the feature field since Donnie Ray Crawford bested three rookies in the 2007 main event with a fifth-place run.  Mosen is part of the fearsome Kiwi contingent that also includes Pickens.

Following Friday night’s main event, the winners from each night drew to determine starting positions with Hagen pulling the number one for the pole position.  Kevin Swindell will start on Hagen’s outside shoulder, with Daum inside row two and Kruseman outside row two.

The second-place finishers drew for positions five through eight, with the third-place runners drawing for nine through twelve.

The balance of Saturday’s Rockstar Energy Drink feature lineups were determined according to preliminary night finishes in the order of the winner’s draw (Thursday, Wednesday, Tuesday, Friday).

Sammy Swindell has his work cut out for him in his effort to become the first back-to-back winner in Chili Bowl history as he starts his day inside row three of the First “C” Main after getting caught up in a wreck while leading in the final laps of Thursday night’s main event.
