After months of waiting, the first of five days of racing rolled off for the 31st Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals in Tulsa, Oklahoma Tuesday night. It was the first of four preliminary nights of racing that will help to set the many feature lineups that will run all day Saturday.


When it was all said and done, Tyler Courtney was the big winner on the night, while Larry Wight and Alex Bright also locked into the 55-Lap A-Main on Saturday night. Earlier in the night, Kyle Larson took home $6,363 by winning the VIROC Race of Champions.
