TULSA, Okla. (July 27, 2005) -- A practice day has been added to the schedule for the 20th Annual O'Reilly Chili Bowl Midget Nationals, which will be held at Tulsa Expo Raceway on January 11-14, 2006.

Each year, top drivers from all racing disciplines converge upon Tulsa, OK, for the Chili Bowl Midget Nationals, with the 2005 edition attracting a record 249 entries from 27 different states as well as New Zealand and Australia.

For the 20th edition of the Chili Bowl, parking the tow rigs inside the Expo Center has been moved up a day to Monday, January 9. Practice will follow on Tuesday, January 10, from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Fans holding tickets for Wednesday's first qualifying night will be admitted free of charge into the grandstands for Tuesday's practice session.

Wednesday, Thursday and Friday's qualifying events will set the Saturday feature lineups for the 20th Anniversary of the O'Reilly Chili Bowl Midget Nationals.

Indiana's Tracy Hines joined the prestigious list of Chili Bowl winners this past January as he gave the Wilke-Pak Motorsports team its first Golden Driller trophy. Sammy Swindell has topped the indoor classic on four occasions, with Cory Kruseman and Dan Boorse each claiming two wins. Drivers with one Chili Bowl crown to their credit include Tony Stewart, Jay Drake, Billy Boat, Donnie Beechler, Andy Hillenburg, Dave Blaney, Lealand McSpadden, Johnny Heydenreich, Scott Hatton and Rich Vogler.
