Rico Abreu returns to form in his return to racing after recovering from the horrific crash at the Four Crown Nationals last summer. For the second night in a row, a car sponsored or partially sponsored by Keith Kunz Motorsports takes the top prize. Kyle Larson won night one in a car sponsored by his father and Keith Kunz. Tyler Thomas and Kevin Thomas Jr., also advance to Saturday’s A-feature with their podium finishes.

Other winners on the night included Brady Bacon, Sammy Swindell, and Chris Windom in their heat races. Tristan Guardino and Nick Drake topped the D-Features, fan favorite Harli White and Colten Cottle took wins in the C-Features. Tyler Thomas, Rico Abreu, David Prickett, and JJ Yeley won the qualifying races with Californians Jake Swanson and Austin Liggett winning the B-Features. Chili Bowl Publicist (and former OneDirt writer) Bryan Hulbert’s full recap of the A-Feature for qualifying night two can be found at www.chilibowl.com [1].
