21st Annual O'Reilly Chili Bowl Nationals Ticket Already Going Fast

TULSA, Okla. (April 27, 2006) -- Tickets for the 21st Annual O'Reilly Chili Bowl Midget Nationals are being ordered at a blinding pace, with the next edition of the indoor, dirt racing classic at Tulsa Expo Raceway slated for January 10-13, 2007.

Ticket holders for the 2006 Chili Bowl Midget Nationals have until June 30 to retain the same four-day tickets for 2007. New orders, as well as increased orders, can be placed at any time and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis after the June 30 renewal deadline has passed.

The 20th edition of the O'Reilly Chili Bowl Midget Nationals, which culminated on January 14, featured a record total of 260 entries with top drivers from numerous racing disciplines throughout the nation vying for the coveted Golden Driller trophy.

Taking the final checkered flag before a packed house on January 14 was Late Model and DIRT Modified ace Tim McCreadie of Watertown, NY, a surprise victor as he became the first winner in Chili Bowl history to come from a racing background outside the open wheel Sprint Car or Midget ranks.

McCreadie joined a prestigious list of Chili Bowl Nationals winners that includes Sammy Swindell (1998, 1996, 1992 and 1989), Cory Kruseman (2004 and 2000), Dan Boorse (2003 and 1999), Tracy Hines (2005), Tony Stewart (2002), Jay Drake (2001), Billy Boat (1997), Donnie Beechler (1995), Andy Hillenburg (1994), Dave Blaney (1993), Lealand McSpadden (1991), Jon Heydenreich (1990), Scott Hatton (1988) and Rich Vogler (1987).

NASCAR stars Tony Stewart, Kasey Kahne and J.J. Yeley are among those that are expected to compete in the 21st Annual O'Reilly Chili Bowl Midget Nationals.

Tickets for all four nights of racing action are available for just $154. Four-day ticket holders also receive free admission to the Tuesday afternoon, January 9, practice session slated for 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Tickets may be ordered via the secure on-line site at www.chilibowl.com with Visa, MasterCard or American Express, or by calling the O'Reilly Chili Bowl Midget Nationals office at 918-838-3777 during business hours, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. CDT, Monday through Friday.
