Team Dover Ready For The Chili Bowl Nationals

SPRINGFIELD, Neb. (January 3, 2008) - With the 22nd edition of the Dodge Chili Bowl Nationals less than a week away, Team Dover Racing is ready to head to Tulsa. Trish Dover will be making her second Chili Bowl appearance and Jack Dover is set to make his first Chili Bowl start.

Though Jack is a Chili Bowl rookie, he is familiar with the Tulsa Expo Raceway. In 2004 he picked up a Golden Driller trophy as the Tulsa Shootout Restricted "A" Class Micro Sprint Champion. Jack is scheduled to qualify in Wednesday's Creek Nation Casino Qualifying Night.

Jack had a tough time finding a car that would accommodate his 6' 5" frame. A trip to Belleville, IL, on Thursday, December 27 landed him in the Anderson Motorsports No. 53, Dave Schmidt Truck Service, Bedrock Raceway, 3 D Auto Transport, RMS, Fontana Ford powered Spike chassis.

"I'm very excited to finally get to drive a Midget and to do it at the Chili Bowl makes it even better." Jack stated. "I can't wait to race at the Expo Center again." I'd like to thank Anderson Motorsports for the chance to drive their car and to all of their sponsors and mine for making this possible."

Trish will team with Scott Pierovich of Alamo, CA, in the Lance Pierovich No. 6p, Bob Wirth Mopar powered Good Guys Hot Rod Association, 3 D Auto Transport, RMS, Spike Chassis. Trish will qualify in Tuesday's Pre-Qualifying Night.

"I'm really looking forward to running the Chili Bowl again." Trish said. "I had a great time last year and met a lot of great people." This is the direction I want to go with my racing career and this experience is so very valuable."

Jack and Trish will become the second Brother-Sister team to compete in the history of the Chili Bowl Nationals, Zach and Stephanie Chappell were the first in 2002.

The 22nd Annual Dodge Chili Bowl Nationals takes place January 8-12, 2008 at the Tulsa Expo Raceway ¼-mile clay oval inside the newly renamed QuikTrip Center in Tulsa, OK.

To all the others that have made Team Dover's 2008 Chili Bowl possible, you know who you are and we thank you.
