McQueen Racing Chili Bowl Nationals Midget Rental Opportunity

By Robert Haugh

Competing against the World’s best racers over five days in early January, with approximately 250 racers competing, including reigning and three-time NASCAR Sprint Cup champion and two-time Chili Bowl winner Tony Stewart and a plethora of the most talented racers from an array of racing backgrounds and disciplines, McQueen Racing is excited to announce they will be renting one of their potent 2012 Spike/Esslinger for the 2013 Chili Bowl Midget Nationals in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

“I am very excited to again have a three car team for the 2013 Chili Bowl and we are currently looking for a third driver. Due to the fact that we are a small team, we cannot afford to put someone in the car without a fee. I really wish that I could give someone that opportunity, as I know there are many deserving drivers out there, but that is just not in the budget, as I finance a large portion of this on my own,” says McQueen.

McQueen Racing is currently accepting resumes/applications for the 2013 Chili Bowl. Those interested will need to send an E-mail with racing resume and background information to team owner Shannon McQueen at Rental fees and deposit are dependent on racing experience and will be discussed within receipt of application.

The McQueen Racing team will consist of Bakersfield, California’s Shannon McQueen and Guthrie, Oklahoma’s Michelle Decker.

McQueen has amassed three Heat race wins, seven Top 5 runs and eight Top 10s thus far in 2012 and leads the USAC-Western States Midget points. McQueen Racing also boasts a feature win with Decker at Bakersfield Speedway in April.

In 2011, McQueen clinched a highly competitive Bay Cities Racing Association Dirt championship prior to the final BCRA Dirt race, becoming the first female to win a major Midget championship. In addition, McQueen claimed the BCRA Dirt driver and Dirt car owner’s titles, while also claiming fourth overall in driver’s points on a limited schedule, and sixth overall in owner’s points, as well as receiving the best appearing car award.

In 2011, McQueen finished in the Top 10 every race, with 12 Top five runs, including a feature victory at Marysville Raceway Park, five Heat race wins, Trophy Dash win and two fast time awards, including a new track record at Silver Dollar Speedway (August 5). McQueen amassed six second-place finishes and nine Top 3 runs.
