Kyle Larson Takes Down Night One Of 2018 Chili Bowl Nationals

Tuesday marked the beginning of the most anticipated week for many dirt track fans: The 32nd Lucas Oil Chili Bowl National presented by General Tire. With over 300 entries, four qualifying nights kicked off Tuesday night with the Warren Cat Qualifying Night. When it came time to race, 86 midgets took to the tiny bull ring in hopes of making a 24 car field A-main, which only guaranteed three transfer spots for Saturdays main event.

Zach Daum and Kyle Larson were the class of the field the entire night, both of which made impressive runs in their heat race and qualifiers to rack up enough passing points to land the duo on the front row. On the initial Green flag, Daum jumped out to an early lead. However, Larson who was also quickest out of the 86 entrants in hot laps, once again showed he had the machine to beat and used momentum to his advantage on lap 8 to clear Daum for the lead out of two. “I knew if I could get some momentum built up, I could get by [Zach] Daum on the top and I was just hoping he didn’t move up, but he left me a lane and I was able to get the lead.” Larson told the media after the race.  “After that, I just ran a decent pace, but I knew I could run harder.”

The win for Larson was extra special as he did it behind the wheel of his father’s owned midget. “It’s great to get a win for my Dad. I haven’t been in a car he’s owned since I was in Karts,” said Larson. Also transferring into the main event on Saturday was Brad Sweet and Tyler Courtney.
