Fast Facts: Owen Riddle was the winner last year before going on to win the Montana 200 for the second time in his career. He will look to start off 2018 with his second Chilly Willy win. Tayler Riddle won the race in 2015 and then won the Summer Showdown at Evergreen in 2016.  Chris Eggleston was second in 2014 at the Chilly Willy 150 and now the former NASCAR West Series champion looks to finish the deal. Mike Langton has had top-five runs in the Summer Showdown and the Montana 200 and now he hopes for a strong run in the Chilly Willy race. Preston Peltier has done some big things out west like winning the Coors Light Summer Showdown at Evergreen Speedway and the Colorado Challenge Cup.  Peltier then came back east and sat on the pole for the 50th Annual Snowball Derby. Darrell Midgley is a two-time Northern Provincial Pipelines Late Model Series and he gets set to run his fourth Chilly Willy race. Las Vegas, NV native Noah Gragson, who drives for Kyle Busch Motorsports in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, will get a head start on his 2018 season by making the Chilly Willy 150 his first race of the year. Teams are allotted 16 tires for this event. They must start the race on their four qualifying tires and tires can only be changed during the race if they’re deemed to be flat.
