TULSA, Okla. (June 7, 2010) – You haven’t forgotten to renew your Chili Bowl tickets have you?
If it has slipped your mind, you still have until Thursday to salvage that marriage and keep those life-long friendships in good standing. After that, you’re on your own.
Tickets for the 25th Anniversary of the Chili Bowl Nationals, set for January 11-15, 2011, at the QuikTrip Center’s Tulsa Expo Raceway, must be renewed by the close of business this Thursday, June 10.
After that, it’s a free-for-all for any unclaimed tickets among new ticket orders, filled on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Tickets for four nights (Wednesday through Saturday) are just $185 apiece, with tickets for all five nights of action available for $228. A $1 per ticket handling charge is applied if paying by credit card.
Tickets are available by calling the Chili Bowl ticket office at 918-838-3777 or online at www.chilibowl.com.
Earlier this year, Kevin Swindell became the youngest winner in Chili Bowl history by capturing the coveted Golden Driller trophy at just 20 years of age, adding to the family collection that already included the four Golden Drillers won at the Chili Bowl by his father, Sammy Swindell.
Sammy Swindell, who finished third behind his son and Cole Whitt, is one of just four drivers to earn multiple Chili Bowl triumphs, with Tony Stewart, Cory Kruseman and Don Boorse each posting two event wins. Another 13 drivers have claimed one Chili Bowl triumph including Kevin Swindell, Damion Gardner, Tim McCreadie, Tracy Hines, Jay Drake, Billy Boat, Donnie Beechler, Andy Hillenburg, Dave Blaney, Lealand McSpadden, Jon Heydenreich, Scott Hatton and Rich Vogler.
