TULSA, Okla. (March 30, 2020) In light of the COVID-19 epidemic and the uncertainty of employment for many around the world, the deadline to renew seats for the 35th annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire has been extended to Friday, June 5, 2020.
“There is so much unknown right now, and we don’t want someone to lose their seats over this deal because their job was affected. That would just be adding insult to injury,” stated Chili Bowl co-founder, Emmett Hahn.”Hopefully this all starts to calm down and we can get back to racing. Right now, we hope everyone stays safe and healthy.”
If you’ve already renewed your seats with a VISA or MasterCard, the charge will not be applied until the end of June through July when tickets are pulled. If you send a check, the check is deposited within 30 days of us receiving it.
Reserved Seats for the 35th annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire will continue to be sold in six, five, and four-day packages. Prices for the 2021 affair will be broken down with four-day tickets at $227, five-day tickets at $282, and tickets for the full event at $337, plus tax (8.517%) and shipping, which is $7 for orders up to 15 tickets and $10 from 16 ticket orders and up.
Domestic orders, not held in Will Call, will be sent via USPS Certified Mail to ensure each order sent will require a signature. All international orders will be kept in Will Call.
Tickets will go out in September.
The office of the Chili Bowl Nationals is open Monday-Friday from 9:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. (CT). New orders, as well as renewals, are being taken at the same time.
If ordering with the renewal form that was mailed at the end of March, those can be returned to 1140 S. 83rd East Ave. Tulsa, OK 74112 or by fax to (918) 836-5517. Tickets can be purchased with Visa. MasterCard, Cash, Check, or Money Order.
Orders will not be taken via email or social media.
If a Reserved Seat ticket cannot be acquired, Pit Passes will be on sale at the event and never sell out. The Pit Pass double as a General Admission pass and allows fans access to the back straightaway on a first-come, first-served basis. Pit Passes are $45 per weekday and $60 on Saturday. Passes can be purchased for multiple consecutive days. Pit Passes are not sold in advance.
All orders are processed by hand. 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. Times and other event information will be published as the event draws closer.
