Chili Bowl 2018

The Midget National Championship located in Tulsa, Oklahoma gets its cleaver name Chili Bowl from the initial sponsor by the Chili Bowl Food Company. Since that initial sponsor the event has grown over the 30 years of existence to become known as the biggest midget race of the year every January. Instilled with tradition for years explains how the actions packed, clay flying experience has attracted the presence of many of the top drivers which elevates this midget competition to a level that is unmatched. Thousands of seats surround the oval indoor track that give the opportunity for spectators to be part of the action packed week of practice, qualifying, heat races, and multiple sub-main events that lead to the "A" main. The "A" main is where the highest competition from the full week of preparation, driving, tuning, overcoming battles, and multiple set ups let drivers compete to be known as the champ. 

Competing for the top spot in 2018 is local Standard Race Team driver Jake Morgan from Rancho Cordova, Ca located in Northern California. Jake travels around California to race both his 360 and 410 winged sprint cars, but known well at his home track in Placerville, Ca. This season Jake finished well through points in the winged class and also picked up a big win in his non-wing spec sprint that was featured at Placerville Speedway. Placerville Speedway is a fast 1/4 mile (3/8 Outside) track that Jake has raced for a long time and has become comfortable as a top finisher. While racing winged sprint cars this previous season, he recently added a USAC Midget that allowed him this opportunity to pack up the high functioning race trailer and make the trip to Tulsa for the Annual Chili Bowl Midget Nationals. 

Jake will be racing at The Chili Bowl January 9th - 13th in the 4Mx Midget, featured above, for his debut at this event. With huge sponsor support and even more from his family and friends, Jake will have a large team cheering him on through the week both in person and also online where all coverage is streamed live.
