Among the earlier round of entries received is reigning Chili Bowl champion, Logan Seavey. One of 32 former A-Feature starters, the 2023 USAC Midget and Silver Crown Champion spent his year driving for Abacus Racing; Seavey will be defending his title behind the wheel of the Kevin and Jordan Swindell owned Victory Fuel No. 39, while Tyler Courtney jumps behind the wheel of the No. 57. The team recently posted the addition of David Gravel and Michael Pickens to their lineup of drivers as well.

Among the entries still on the way, teams are up against the early registration deadline, with the discounted rate expiring after this Friday, December 8, 2023.

Seven states are sending double-digit drivers so far. Oklahoma currently has 32 drivers entered, followed by Texas (19), Indiana (18), Missouri (18), Illinois (15), California (12), and Pennsylvania (10).
