Fast Facts: The Chilly Willy 150 will serve as the kickoff to the 2019 Super Late Model season on the west coast.  The 150-lap race will include a Lap 75 break where teams will be able to change two tires.  This will be the first race in the country where the new Five Star Gen 6 Body will be allowed.  Last year's winner Chris Eggleston has not yet filed an entry for the event.  In fact, no former winners are currently entered for the event, opening the door for a new winner in 2019.  Forty Super Late Models were on the most recent entry list for the race.  Brett Yackey, the 2018 Kulwicki Cup Champion, is entered and will look to begin his season with the biggest win of his career.  Mariah McGriff, the granddaughter of legend Hershel McGriff, will be competing in the race.  Kody Vanderwal, who won a NASCAR K&N Pro Series West race at Tucson last year, will be looking to secure another big victory at the track.  2018 track champion Brandon Farrington has also filed an entry and will be among the favorite to pocket $10,000.
