Brownsburg, IN — (January 18, 2012) — Kyle Steffens, of St. Charles, Missouri, made his Nine Racing team debut in the #91X at last week’s 26th Annual Chili Bowl Midget Nationals at the QuikTrip Center’s Tulsa Expo Raceway, in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Kyle began the 2012 Chili Bowl event by winning his heat race on Thursday, January 12. He finished 8th in the A Qualifier 3, and then finished 6th in the B Main. Unfortunately, the top four transferred to the A Main, so he missed moving up to the A Main by two places.
On Saturday, January 14, Kyle drove the Nine Racing #91X in the E Main 2, but ended up finishing the event in 15th place as the top four transferred to the D Main.
After the conclusion of the Chili Bowl Nationals, Kyle said, “I’m bummed that the Chili Bowl is over, but happy to have new opportunities for 2012 in an open wheel car. Thanks to the entire Nine Racing team.”
Kyle is sponsored by Performance Plus Global Logisitics.
