Chili Bowl

January 11, 2009.  When the 23rd Annual Chili Bowl Midget Nationals kicks off in Tulsa, Oklahoma on Tuesday, Triple X Race Co. will have at least three cars in the pit area in pursuit of the famed Golden Driller trophy.

A year ago, Washington state native Gary Taylor piloted the new Triple X midget prototype and finished eighth in the first B-Main event. It was a good start for Triple X as Taylor was well into the top half of the field that was a staggering 273 cars strong (there were a pair of K-Mains). Taylor then picked up a couple of midget victories in that car last season.

Taylor has already won for Triple X in Tulsa this year at the famed Tulsa Expo Raceway. Just after the first of the year Taylor won the winged 600 mini-sprint "A-Class" main event in the Tulsa Shootout. Taylor will be back in Tulsa again for the Chili Bowl this week, racing his familiar No. 5* for Tel-Star Communications - Mike Eubanks Racing in Tuesday's preliminary event, but he will have company on the Triple X front this year.

Broken Arrow, Oklahoma's Brady Bacon will be piloting another Triple X, the No. 99 car, in Wednesday's program. Bacon is already an accomplished non-wing sprint car racer, having won on both the dirt and pavement. In August last year he won three Sprint Bandit "Tour ‘n Topless" tour main events in as many nights driving a Triple X wingless sprint car.

In the past the 18-year-old Bacon has driven sprint cars and midgets owned by NASCAR star Kasey Kahne. Bacon finished seventh in last year's Chili Bowl main event driving one of Kahne's cars. This week, Bacon will drive for Eubanks also and will look to make Triple X present in the Chili Bowl main event on Saturday.

Thursday will see one another Eubanks-owned Triple X car in the field as Tulsa's own Donnie Ray Crawford will pilot the No. 55 as a teammate to both Taylor and Bacon. Despite 200+ plus midgets on hand, Crawford made the Chili Bowl feature race in his rookie appearance in 2007 and had a very strong fifth place finish.

Stay tuned to see updates on how the Triple X teams do in their pursuit of the coveted Golden Driller trophy.
