TULSA, Okla. (January 8, 2005) -- 249 drivers from 27 different states as well as New Zealand and Australia are set to take to Tulsa Expo Raceway's quarter-mile clay oval on Saturday to vie for the coveted Golden Driller trophy in the Super Bowl of auto racing.

Thursday night's Love's Travel Stops & Country Stores qualifying race winner Tracy Hines has drawn the pole position for the 50-lap Chili Bowl championship feature, with Wednesday's Creek Nation Casino Qualifying Showdown winner Josh Ford drawing the front row outside. Friday night winner Cory Kruseman, shooting to become the first back-to-back winner in O'Reilly Chili Bowl Midget Nationals history, will grid Saturday night's 24-car feature field inside the second row.

Hot laps begin at 12:30 p.m. with the first "J" Feature in Chili Bowl history to follow soon after. Nineteen features will be contested over the course of the day, with the evening culminating with the crowning of the 19th Annual O'Reilly Chili Bowl Midget Nationals champion on Saturday night.
