2016 UNDERWAY WITH RUNNING OF CHILI BOWL
The 2016 season has officially been given the green flag as both Jac and Sheldon participated in the 30th running of the Chili Bowl Nationals in Tulsa, OK this month. Both drivers were exceptionally competitive in the field of over 300 midget entries! If not for some bad luck of hitting a restart cone, it’s quite plausible that Sheldon would have finished on the podium of his qualifying night and locked himself in the Saturday night Feature event.
As it was, both drivers bowed out of action early on the final night. Sheldon finished 11th in the C-Main and Jac finished 9th in the B-Main, just 3 spots out of a transfer to the big show. To put that in perspective, only 4% of the field makes the Saturday night Feature, so all the dominoes must fall just right to make the show!
It’ll be a few weeks until the midwest area opens up for race season and we’ll keep you abreast of the plans for Jac and Sheldon as it becomes available.
