(April 24, 2017) The deadline for fans to renew their reserved seat tickets, or place a new order, for the 32nd annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire is this Friday, April 28, 2017 and again, the Chili Bowl ticket office has seen orders coming in at a record pace.
“Every year, I think there is no way this thing can get any bigger, and every year I am just amazed at how fast the ticket orders come in,” said Chili Bowl co-founder, Emmett Hahn, with a chuckle. “It’s really an honor to have so many fans and racers from all over the world wanting to come to Chili Bowl.”
Anyone wanting to renew can do so by phone by calling (918) 838-3777 between 9:00 A.M. and 5:00 P.M. (CDT), Monday-Friday. If submitting the ticket renewal form that was mailed out to current ticket holders, the form can be either faxed, mailed, or dropped off at the Chili Bowl office. When renewing tickets, orders can be paid with Visa, MasterCard, Check, Money Order, or Cash. All new orders must include a Visa or MasterCard number.

A note to all who have ordered tickets, all orders are processed by hand throughout the month of May. All renewals are processed first, then changes to those accounts, then new orders will be done in the order they were received until all tickets are sold. Tickets are mailed in the month of June.
Reserved Seat tickets for the 32nd Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire are sold in four day (Wednesday-Saturday) and five day (Tuesday-Saturday) packages only. Tuesday’s opening night is the only individual reserved seat that is sold as an individual day ticket.
Four day tickets are $227, plus shipping. Five day tickets are $282, plus shipping. If someone with a Reserved Seat would like to upgrade to a Combo Ticket/Pit Pass, the cost is $20 per day. Upgrading to a combo pass must be done at the event.
Cost of shipping varies on the number of ticket orders and the location we are shipping. All tickets purchased by fans outside of the United States will be held at will call.
If a Reserved Seat ticket cannot be procured, Pit Passes will be on sale at the event and never sell out. The Pit Pass allows fans access to the back straightaway on a first come, first served basis. Pit Passes are $45 per weekday, and $60 on Saturday. Buying concurrent days does save the buyer money.
