Christopher Bell wins Chili Bowl Nationals; Kyle Larson suffers heartbreak

Christopher Bell wins Chili Bowl Nationals; Kyle Larson suffers heartbreak

The Chili Bowl Nationals is often known as the "Super Bowl" of midget racing and has been taking place in Tulsa since 1987.

"I know for some fans that may bum them out or make them think I have a bad attitude about NASCAR racing, but I love it, and there are some special dirt races I want to win and the Chili Bowl is one of them".

Larson, obviously, was more disappointed, especially after losing the lead to Bell on a restart early in the race and then taking it back when Bell got caught behind a lapped vehicle. But he might be even more hard to defeat behind the wheel of a midget vehicle, especially when it's Chili Bowl time. Spencer Bayston finished third. Larson finished 19th in the 24-car field. Abreu had not raced since September because of injuries he suffered in a race at Eldora Speedway. He could face Larson in stock cars when Larson runs in the Xfinity Series. The Elk Grove driver, who made waves this week by saying a Chili Bowl victory would mean more to him than winning the Daytona 500, was leading the race when his engine let go on lap 44, handing the lead to Bell.

"At Turkey Night, we raced our butts off and I won, and here tonight, he had a motor blow up?" Among those who have qualified for the 55-lap main event are three drivers with NASCAR ties - NASCAR Cup star Kyle Larson, 2017 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series champion Christopher Bell (the defending Chili Bowl champion) and former truck series driver and two-time Chili Bowl champion Rico Abreu. Among those scheduled to compete for slots in Friday night heats are Kasey Kahne, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Chase Briscoe. Stenhouse flipped in his heat race but was OK. "It's definitely not the easiest feeling you have".
