The West Coast Super Late Model racing season will kick off January 24-26 with the Chilly Willy 150 at Tucson Speedway (AZ). Entries are already coming in for the 7th Annual Chilly Willy, including some stout West Coast racers from six states as well as British Columbia.
Headlining the initial entry list is the 2018 winner of the event, Chris Eggleston. Six different drivers have won the six prior Chilly Willy 150s, so Eggleston will be looking to become the first two-time winner of the event.
A pair of Colorado drivers join Eggleston on the entry list. Mark Neff and Darrell J. Stewart are both entered in this year’s Chilly Willy.
Naturally, Arizona boasts the most drivers on the first entry list, with five home state competitors included. Brandon Schilling, Dane Jorgenson, Paul Banghart, Brandon Farrington and Curtis Lansing will all be fighting to keep the Chilly Willy crown in the Grand Canyon State.
Washington is already well-represented as well, with four drivers on the first entry list. Bryce Bezanson, Andy Sole, Robb Touchette and Stephen Blankenship will be carrying the banner for that state.
Surprisingly, a California driver has never won the Chilly Willy. Dustin Walters and Dennis DelBaggio will be among those hoping to change that in 2020.
Also included in the entry list are Wyoming’s Lance Elliott, Oregon’s Austin Thom and Kole Raz and British Columbia’s Brandon Carlson and Darrell Midgley.
The Chilly Willy begins on Friday, January 24, with racing all weekend long before concluding on Sunday, January 26. The Chilly Willy 150 will pay $10,000 to the winner as the highlight of the weekend.
