ATLANTIC CITY, NJ January 20, 2020 . . . Just months after formally announcing his retirement from racing, Ransomville, NY asphalt Modified ace Chuck Hossfeld has become the latest TQ (Three Quarter) Midget entrant in the NAPA Know How Indoor Auto Racing Series events inside Atlantic City, NJ’s famed Boardwalk Hall.

“When I made the announcement to retire I could not believe the attention I got,” said Hossfeld, “It has been very flattering and it is something that I will never forget.”

He won’t have to.

When the Indoor Auto Racing VP Series storms into Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Hall, Hossfeld will buckle up behind the wheel of Joe Brainard’s No. 98 Tim Nye-built TQ Midget.

It will be the first ever Indoor Auto Racing Series start for Hossfeld, whose racing legacy includes four Race Of Champions Modified Touring Series titles achieved 21 years apart (1997, 2011, 2014, and 2018), His last RoC Series win came this past summer, in July, at Lancaster, NY Speedway.

Hossfeld finished second once and third twice in the points on the on NASCAR Whelen Modified Touring Series on the strength of seven career wins.

He also has made ten career NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck starts between 2000 and 2001 driving for Jack Roush with one top ten finish.

Andy Jankowiak, Ryan Flores and Erick Rudolph, the last three winners of the headline Gambler’s Classic TQ Midget races in the building come to Atlantic City are pre-race favorites.

‘Andy J’ of Buffalo, N.Y. still savors his 2019 Gambler’s Classic win as the highlight of his driving career and he wants nothing more to do it again.

After two rounds of Indoor Auto Racing Series action fueled by VP Racing Fuels, Matt Janisch is the current leader in the Championship standings. Janisch, of Nazareth, PA, had Allentown finishes of third and seventh.

Janisch leads upstate New York dirt Modified driver Ryan Bartlett in the TQ points heading into Atlantic City by ten points. Bartlett made his first start behind the wheel of a new-to-him Lafler built TQ Midget.

Allentown, Pa. opener winner Erick Rudolph is third, 17 markers out of first and Briggs Danner is fourth, 20 points out of the lead. Jankiowiak completes the top five, 24 points out of first.

Jeremy Haudricourt, Shawn Nye, Tim Buckwalter, Ryan Flores, who also won in Allentown, and Anthony Payne are sixth through tenth.

The wild and crazy Slingshots and darty Champ Karts will make up the tripleheader program as they have in the past.

Dylan Hoch and Tyler Brown, winners of the Allentown Indoor opening races in Slingshot and Champ Kart action, are atop their point standings heading into Atlantic City.

Danny Buccafusca is the reigning Atlantic City Indoor Slingshot race winner and Doug Stearly was the 2019 Champ Kart Atlantic City race winner. Both are entered in this year’s races.

Racing action begins on Friday at 7:30 p.m. with Saturday action getting the green flag at 7 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 on Friday night. On Saturday doors open at 5 p.m. with fans holding reserved tickets given the opportunity to attend Fan Fest on the speedway.

Kyle Larson Wins The 34th annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire(Brendon Bauman Photo)


Kyle Larson Wins The 34th annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire

Bryan Hulbert - TULSA, Okla. (January 18, 2020) "I'm sorry NASCAR, I'm sorry Daytona, but this is the biggest effing race I've ever won. I hope to win Daytona in a few weeks, but this is badass!"
That said it all as Kyle Larson found redemption from a last-lap loss one year ago as the Elk Grove, California native finally captured the Golden Driller in the 34th annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire.

Larson, in his 13th Chili Bowl attempt, and ninth A-Feature appearance, trailed the opening 38 laps as Christopher Bell took the lead from the pole.

Chasing into traffic early, the Lucas Oil No. 01 would close to just under a second before being gapped by over two seconds as the pair sliced through the back of the field.

Caution on Lap 34, the restart saw Larson keeping pace with Bell. Throwing the slide job into the first turn, Kyle wasn't quick enough as Bell raced by on the cushion. Slowed again three laps later, Larson again kept pace with the pair battling back and forth for the lead.

With momentum to his advantage, Larson dove the bottom of the first and second turn on Lap 39. Sliding across the nose of the Tucker-Boat No. 84x, Bell tried to turn under Kyle, but the drag race into the third turn saw Larson slam the door on Bell to take the race lead.

Holding off the charge through two more cautions, the final laps saw Bell close in, but would not have enough time as Larson crossed 0.801 seconds ahead of the 2019 race winner. Making his first championship feature event, Monday prelim winner Cannon McIntosh put the Keith Kunz Motorsports No. 71k on the podium in his first full weekend with the team.

Working the hub of the Tulsa Expo Raceway, Logan Seavey wheeled the Kevin Swindell Motorsports No. 39 forward seventh positions to fourth with Rick Abreu completing the top five. Jonathan Beason crossed sixth with 2020 Chili Bowl Rookie of the Year, Michael "Buddy" Kofoid finishing seventh. Having to charge from the back of the field twice, Blake Hahn fought to eighth to become the night's Hard Charger. Ryan Bernal and Tucker Klaasmeyer completed the top five.

Saturday's races began with double O-Features. Several drivers made impressive runs through the Alphabet with Chris Cochran advancing six times from the N-Feature to the I-Feature. Cale Conley, Casey Shuman, Brayton Lynch, and Alex Sewell all advanced through five events. Overall, it was the Boost Oxygen No. 11 who advance the most positions with a net gain of 43.

The 2020 Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire saw an overall field of 343 drivers from 40 states and six countries. The Worldwide Technologies Raceway Flip Count ended at 77, setting a new record for the Chili Bowl Nationals. All drivers were unharmed.

The 35th annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire will take place January 11-16, 2021. Information about tickets will be posted as the information is finalized.

Tanner Thorson Delivers A Thriller On Vacuworx Qualifying Night(DB3 Photo)


Thorson Delivers A Thriller On Vacuworx Qualifying Night

Bryan Hulbert - TULSA, Okla. (January 17, 2020) Four leaders, seven official lead changes, and at the end of Friday's Vacuworx Qualifying Night; a drag race to the checkered flag that saw Tanner Thorson holding off Ryan Bernal at the line for his first career preliminary A-Feature victory in the 34th running of the Lucas Oil Chili Bowl National presented by General Tire.

Making the win sweeter for Thorson is the fact that 10 months ago, the outlook on his career was grim following a crash that nearly ended his career.

"This means a lot. I didn't know if I was ever going to be able to race again. My parents didn't tell me until about two months after the fact that on one of my last appointments that the surgeon said I may never be able to use my left arm again.," stated, Tanner. "It was definitely one of the hardest times of my life and hopefully I don' have to do anything harder."

Chasing from fifth as Chris Windom took the lead from the pole, the race early was for second as Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. battling with Klaasmeyer who took the position as the caution flew.

Race for the lead on the restart, Stenhouse stuck the NOS Energy Drink No. 17s to the hub to overtake Windom off the second turn on Lap 4. Opening his advantage to nearly a second in two laps, the Whelen caution shown working Lap 7.

Back to the last fully completed lap, Stenhouse led Tanner Thorson to the green with the Oil Fire Whiskey No. 19 keeping step with the Mississippi shoe. Working the low side until Lap 8, Thorson shot to the cushion with the lead in sight. Adjusting up the track on Lap 10, Stenhouse held off the charge as Tucker Klaasmeyer rolled into the picture to battle for second.

In traffic on Lap 14, the point changed hands working Lap 15 as Ricky slipped off the bottom and opened the door by Thorson, however, the caution negated the pass as a pair of cars tangled in the third turn.

Moving Stenhouse back to the point as the field reverted to Lap 14, the lead was short-lived as Ricky slammed through the cushion and into the wall, in turn, three on the restart. Thorson to the lead, Windom took over second with Klaasmeyer also taking a spot away from Stenhouse.

Stalked by fifth running Justin Grant, the No. 4a threw a massive slide job for third, but the caution would put him back to fifth on the restart which saw Stenhouse suddenly at the mercy of a failed part on the left rear as the car shot into the wall.

To the final 13 laps, Windom wasted no time going after the lead. Slide for slide, Windom and Thorson traded the top spot with the pair nearly tangling in turn four on Lap 20, opening the bottom to Ryan Bernal who shot from fourth the first in an instant.

Caution bringing the battle to rest with 10 laps to run as Andrew Layser added his name to the Worldwide Technologies Raceway Flip Count, Bernal protected the bottom on the restart. Keeping to the hub, Thorson retook the runner-up spot on the cushion.

With momentum on Lap 24, the slide jobs were on again. Swapping top to bottom on Lap 25, Thorson took the lead with Windom making it a three-car battle on the final lap. Fighting around a lapped car, the run to the win came down to the final turn with Tanner Thorson hustling the high side to the line 0.166 seconds ahead of Ryan Bernal.

Chris Windom ended up third with Tucker Klaasmeyer fourth. Gridding the field 16th, Justin Allgaier charged forward 11 positions to complete the top five.

For the week, a field of 343 drivers drew in for the 34th annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire.

Friday's field of 70 competitors took on nine OERB Heat Races with wins going to Ace McCarthy, Ethan Mitchell, Justin Allgaier, AJ Hopkins, Chris Windom, Tucker Klaasmeyer, Justin Grant, Ricky Stenhouse, Jr., and Chad Boespflug. C-Feature scores went to Dustin Morgan and Alex Schutte.

Team Toyota Qualifier wins went to Sam Hafertepe, Jr., Donny Schatz, Justin Grant, and Chris Windom. Dave.com B-Features were topped by Sam Johnson and Jody Rosenboom.

Christopher Bell Charges To Victory On John Christner Trucking Qualifying Night (DB3 Photo)


Christopher Bell Charges To Victory On John Christner Trucking Qualifying Night

Bryan Hulbert - TULSA, Okla. (January 16, 2020) Christopher Bell's fifth preliminary night victory in as many years, and sixth overall prelim triumph, the driver of the Tucker-Boat No. 84x was the class of the field in Thursday's John Christner Trucking Qualifying Night.

"Man, this race...I say it time, and time again, this race literally is what motorsports means to me. This is the pinnacle for me growing up in Oklahoma. I hope that this is the race I can run the rest of my life until I can come back here owning a racecar and have another Buddy Kofoid drive for me," commented Bell, who is locked into his seventh championship A-Feature in as many years.

Gridding the field sixth, Bell worked into the top three following a Lap 5 restart.
Led by Thomas Meseraull, the RMS entry took off with Logan Seavey, Buddy Kofoid, and Christopher Bell in tow. Three-wide for second, Kofoid worked past the pair on the bottom of turn four with Bell adjusting his line the following lap take the position away.

Running down the No. 7x in a matter of laps, Bell used high side momentum off the fourth turn on Lap 10; throwing the slide job deep into turn one to clear Meseraull for the point on Lap 11. Into traffic on Lap 17, Bell's run stalled for a moment with Meseraull closing while trying to fend off Buddy Kofoid. Picking through the backmarkers, Bell three-wide in traffic at times kept his advantage just over a second.

With the white flag waving, Bell's night nearly ended as contact with a slower car all but parked the No. 84x. Able to recover with the field bearing down, Bell was still able to capture the win by 1.114 seconds.

Asked how he balanced being patient while aggressive, Bell replied, "Lapped traffic was thick and they were just two by two, so honestly I just got to the point where I started riding behind them because I've taken myself out a lot here running over lapped cars and I still almost did it coming to the white flag."

Thomas Meseraull picked up the final transfer to Saturday's A-Feature with Buddy Kofoid third in his first career Chili Bowl appearance. Logan Seavey crossed fourth with Shane Golobic holding on to complete the top five.

With a field of 73 on hand for Thursday's John Christner Trucking Qualifying Night, the week's total car count stands at 273 with another 76 slated for Friday's Vacuworx Qualifying Night.

Split into nine OERB Heat Races, the wins went to CJ Leary, Shane Golobic, Thomas Meseraull, Cory Kruseman, Tanner Berryhill, Logan Seavey, Christopher Bell, Shane Cottle, and Chance Morton. C-Features went to Cale Conley and Michelle Decker with Dave.com B-Features topped by Shane Cottle and Kyle Cummins. Team Toyota Qualifiers number four with Jason McDougal, Buddy Kofoid, Shane Golobic, and Christopher Bell earning wins.

The Worldwide Technologies Raceway Flip Count jumped Thursday from 39 to 49 with all drivers able to walk away.

Rico Abreu Is Five For Five On Hard Rock Casino Tulsa Qualifying Night

Bryan Hulbert - TULSA, Okla. (January 15, 2020) Chasing early, then having to hold off numerous charges over the course of late-race restarts, California's Rico Abreu captured his fifth consecutive Hard Rock Casino Tulsa preliminary night victory during the Wednesday portion of the 34th annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire.

Asked about winning his preliminary night for the fifth time, Rico replied, "It's pretty impressive. I've always come here really prepared and my team has brought really prepared race cars, but it all starts with our Heat Race; getting through that and then getting through your Qualifier."

Trailing Brad Sweet early, the California drivers ran varying lines around the Tulsa Expo Raceway with Sweet low as Abreu stepped to the top. Working through early cautions, Sweet was able to fend off the Safelite AutoGlass No. 97, but as the neared the half-way point, Rico got the better of the battle and bolted into the lead on Lap 15 with a slide job off the second turn.

Caution on Lap 17, the restart began a wild scramble for the runner-up spot with second through sixth trading hands in nearly every corner with Sweet getting shuffled as far down as sixth, Hahn advancing to fourth, Copeland taking second, Gravel knocked out of the top five, and all the while Rico steadily pulled away before caution lights shown again on Lap 21.
Red on Lap 24 with a five-car pileup in the first two turns, all drivers escaped uninjured.

Keeping Abreu in sight, Copeland worked the low side of the speedway in a bid for the lead as Blake Hahn and Brad Sweet trade sliders for the show position. Working top to bottom at either end of the track, the battle came to a head on Lap 26 as the pair collided in the fourth turn with Sweet helicoptering off the wall. Able to keep rolling, Hahn restarted third.

Getting a run on the restart, Copeland pulled alongside Rico, but could not advance to the point. To the final lap, Rico kept the right rear humming on the cushion with the checkered flag dropping on a 1.104-second advantage.

Letting the car drift off the bottom exiting the final turn, Colby Copeland held off Hahn by 0.141 seconds for the automatic transfer into Saturday A-Feature. Settling for third, Hahn was trailed by Chase Johnson with Sammy Swindell navigating the hub from 13th to complete the top five.

With a field of 66 bringing the weekend to 200 competitors taking to the Tulsa Expo Raceway, the night's lineup was split into eight OERB Heat Races with wins going to Daniel Robinson, David Camfield, Chase Johnson, Jesse Colwell, Sammy Swindell, Rico Abreu, and Clinton Boyles.

C-Features were topped by Robert Dalby and Mike Griffiths with Team Toyota Qualifiers won by Blake Hahn, Brad Sweet, Colby Copeland, and Jake Swanson. A pair of Dave.com B-Features went to Jesse Colwell and Tyler Thomas.

The Worldwide Technologies Raceway Flip Count grew only slightly on Wednesday from 32 to 39 with all drivers able to walk away.
The 34th annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire continues Thursday, January 16, 2020, with John Christner Trucking Qualifying Night.

Kyle Larson Unstoppable On Warren CAT Qualifying Night

Kyle Larson Unstoppable On Warren CAT Qualifying Night; Bell Tops The VIROC

Bryan Hulbert - TULSA, Okla. (January 14, 2020) Picking up his sixth career preliminary night victory, and third straight since 2018, Kyle Larson battled through a myriad of cautions to win Tuesday's Warren CAT Qualifying Night during the 34th annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire.
Locking into his ninth championship A-Feature since 2010, the race to that ticket became a question of fuel.

"I think me and Jonathan (Beason) both were running out of fuel there at the end," explained Larson. "Mine was stumbling a lot the last five laps, so I was thankful we didn't have another caution because I don't know if I could have made it."

To the lead on the cushion over the No. 8j of Jonathan Beason, the start was short-lived as Derek Hagar came to a stop in turn three. Following Larson's lead to the top of the Tulsa Expo Raceway, Kyle got away by three-tenths of a second before the Whelen Caution lights switched on again.

Battle for second on the restart, Mike Hess set sights on Beason with no luck as the Broken Arrow native drove away. Railing the cushion in the tire tracks of Kyle Larson, the top two daylighted the field by 3.122 seconds before the caution displayed for Jeremy Webb who spun in the third turn.

Challenged again by Hess on the restart, Beason eluded the No. 51 but was again unable to keep pace with Larson's iRacing No. 01.
Continuing to be plagued by cautions, two more as the field reached lap 10 saw similar restarts with Larson keep the field at bay. Getting a run on a Lap 14 restart, Jonathan Beason looked for a hole but the charge for the lead was for not as Larson slowly pulled away.

Seeing slower traffic for the first time on Lap 21, Beason was on the back bumper of Larson for the lead, but Kyle wasted little time sliding the slower machines to keep the BA Lawn and Garden No. 8j chasing. Slowed with six laps to run as Jake Bubak slammed the cushion battling for third and going over, Larson picked up right where he left off as Beason, Wight, and Faccinto battled for second with Beason holding the position.

Taking the final six laps without delay, Kyle Larson crossed 2.822 seconds ahead of Jonathan Beason, who secured his sixth trip to Saturday's big dance with Michael Faccinto holding off the torrid advance of Dillon Welch, who advanced 12 positions to finish fourth. Larry Wight ended up completing the top five.

Not the only feature event on the night, the VIROC saw a new winner with Christopher Bell charging from seventh in the closing laps to collect a convincing victory. Mired mid-pack early on, cautions around the race's mid-point provided the springboard for Bell to begin making moves.

Going after race-long leader Sam Hafertepe, Jr. on a restart with nine laps to go, Bell's slide went unanswered as the Tucker-Boat Racing No. 84x pulled away to a 4.089 second lead at the checkered flag. Getting upside down during his qualifying run, Rico Abreu tore through the field from 14th to finish second with Sam Hafertepe, Jr. slipping to third. Kyle Larson made up four positions with C.J. Leary making up the top five.

With 77 drivers checking in for Warren CAT Qualifying Night, the weekend count stands at 134.
Nine Heat OERB Heat Races were won by Michael Faccinto, Kyle Larson, Jonathan Beason, Hank Davis, Hunter Schuerenberg, Larry Wight, Mike Hess, Tyler Thompson, and TJ Smith. D-Features went to Kenney Johnson and Austin Brown with C-Features topped by Kyle Hammer and Wyatt Burks. Dave.com B-Features went to Jake Bubak and Mitchel Moles. Team Toyota Qualifiers were captured by TJ Smith, Kyle Larson, Larry Wight, and Mike Hess.

The Worldwide Technologies Raceway Flip Counted swelled drastically from nine to 32 with all drivers able to walk away.
