Bryan Hulbert – TULSA, Okla. (January 12, 2024) A race for the ages Friday night at the 38th annual Chili Bowl Nationals powered by NOS Energy as Logan Seavey threw dice, sliders, and everything else he could possibly think of to claim Friday’s Hard Rock Hotel Casino, Tulsa, Qualifying Night.

Despite not feeling well, Friday is the third time Seavey has topped a prelim night feature, and second, in as many years, on Friday in the Kevin and Jordan Swindell owned No. 39, with the win coming down to a mad dash throughout the top five over the final 13 laps.

Diving into the battle late, the start was a race between Ryan Timms and Steven Snyder, Jr., with the pair banked off berm and cushion multiple times in pursuit of each other, with Timms leading the opening seven rotations. Falling to sliver as Snyder raced by, the No. 40x held point through Lap 15 with the top five in a frenzy as Timms reclaimed the lead.

Having chased to this point after starting seventh, Logan Seavey threw a three-for-one slide to crack the podium on Lap 19. Reeling in Timms as the pair worked traffic, the race paused working Lap 26 as Justin Grant flipped on the front stretch.

Two tries at a restart with five to go, both times Timms was able to fend off the Victory Fuel No. 39 as Andrew Felker grabbed second with three laps to go. Racing back around the No. 11A, and set sights on Timms, Logan railed the cushion in pursuit of the JBL No. 67 before breaking rank to the bottom for the slide through the third and fourth turns as the white flag flew.

Protecting against the slide at both ends, Seavy held on to win by 0.608-seconds. Ryan Timms in second will start in his second championship feature event on Saturday. Andrew Felker crossed third with Steven Snyder, Jr. in fourth. From the B-Feature, Amerson Axsom rolled forward 13 positions to complete the top five.

Five nights of preliminary qualifying and a total of 365 drivers drew in for the 38th annual Chili Bowl Nationals powered by NOS Energy; matching the overall number in 2023. The Flip Count has grown to 45 with all drivers ok. Special thanks to Simpson Race Products for giving out new equipment during this year’s flip count.

Saturday’s Soup begins to boil at 9:00 A.M. with P-Features up first. Opener Ceremonies is set for 6:30 P.M. (CT). The evening program will start with the C-Features. Saturday lineups are posted at
