O'Reilly Chili Bowl Midget Nationals Entries Unveiled!

TULSA, Okla. (December 8, 2005) -- The Bowl season is nearly upon us and that can mean only one thing: it's time to take a look at the pre-entries for the upcoming 20th Annual O'Reilly Chili Bowl Midget Nationals, which will take place at Tulsa Expo Raceway on Wednesday through Saturday, January 11-14, 2006.

The complete list of entries is available at
www.chilibowl.com/2006cbentries.asp.

The entry list for the 20th edition of the Chili Bowl, which includes 229 entries from 26 different states, reads like a veritable "Who's Who" of auto racing with top drivers from all disciplines of racing. Among those headlining the list of entries are NASCAR Nextel Cup Champion Tony Stewart, NASCAR star Kasey Kahne, 20-time World of Outlaws champion Steve Kinser, four-time Chili Bowl winner Sammy Swindell, two-time Chili Bowl champions Cory Kruseman and Dan Boorse, and defending Chili Bowl winner Tracy Hines.

With 229 entries already submitted, it is expected that last year's record count of 249 competitors will be easily eclipsed.

One-third of the entrants will compete on Wednesday night, January 11, with the second-third on Thursday night and the final third on Friday night. Qualifying night results will determine the Saturday, January 14, Chili Bowl championship feature lineups.

Originally a two-day event that attracted 52 entries in 1987, the O'Reilly Chili Bowl Midget Nationals has evolved into a four-night extravaganza of indoor, dirt track midget racing, and ranks among the world's most prestigious auto racing events.

Reserved seating for all four nights of the event was depleted in mid-October. Pit passes for all four nights do remain however. Four-night pit pass vouchers are available by contacting the O'Reilly Chili Bowl Midget Nationals ticket office at 918-838-3777.

Those unable to attend the event can listen to all the action unfold live via the Internet at www.racinboys.com. Additional information regarding the O'Reilly Chili Bowl Midget Nationals is available at www.chilibowl.com or by calling 918-838-3777.
