Kyle Larson finally won the Chili Bowl and he did it in fitting style — by beating Christopher Bell.

 

In his 13th attempt and after being beaten on the last lap a year ago by Bell, Larson stalked his soon-to-be NASCAR rival for the first 38 laps before sliding into the lead coming off Turn 2. Then he held off the three-time Chili champion in a couple late restarts to earn his first Golden Driller trophy.

 

“Sorry NASCAR and Daytona but this is the biggest effing win I’ve ever had,” said the 27-year-old Californian who started third. “This is badass and I’ve spent almost half my life trying to win this thing. It’s an amazing feeling.”

 

Going for his fourth consecutive victory in the midget race that kicks off the racing season, Bell fell a couple car lengths short.

 

“Second at the Chili Bowl sucks but I want to thank my owner Chad Boat because this was a blast,” said the Oklahoma native who won three in a row for Keith Kunz operation but switched to Tucker-Boat Racing this year. Starting on the outside of Row 1 in the 24-car field, Bell powered past polesitter Tanner Thorson and into the lead in the first turn and immediately pulled away to a two-second advantage in his Spike/Toyota. It looked like game, set and match until they caught traffic and then a caution on Lap 35 changed everything. It closed up the field and Larson was able to hang with Bell on the restart before striking a few laps later.

 

“I don’t know if I had a tire going down or Kyle was better for those 10 laps,” said Bell, who moved into NASCAR’s top tier in 2020 after excelling in Xfinity and trucks. “The track was treacherous but he didn’t make any mistakes this year.”

Larson, who also left Kunz’s dominant operation to start his own team, bounced off the cushion (and the wall once) but managed to keep his Lucas Oil King/Toyota out in front. “I got sloppy a couple times at the end but Paul Silva gave me a great car.”

 

Sixteen-year-old Cannon McIntosh charged from eighth to finish third in only his second appearance in Tulsa.

 

“It was really cool to run with Chris and Rico (Abreu) and my car got better and better,” said McIntosh, who drives one of Kunz’s Bullet/Toyotas. “I learned a lot and it was a lot of fun.”

 

Former USAC midget champ Logan Seavey put in the charge of the night as he stormed from 11th to fourth for Kevin Swindell’s team.

 

IndyCar drivers Conor Daly, Santino Ferrucci and James Davison ran earlier in the day with Daly taking ninth in the H Main, Ferrucci finishing seventh in the K Main and Davison ninth in the M main.

Ryan Newman is serious condition with unspecified injuries at Halifax Medical Center in Daytona Beach and is undergoing further treatment and evaluation.

 

NASCAR executive vice president Steve O’Donnell read a statement to the media on Newman’s condition on behalf of Roush Fenway Racing just after 10 p.m. ET. Newman was transported directly to the hospital after being removed from his No. 6 Ford Mustang following an accident on the final lap of the Daytona 500.

 

The statement read: “Ryan Newman is being treated at Halifax Medical Center. He’s in serious condition, but doctors have indicated his injuries are non-life threatening. We appreciate your thoughts and prayers and ask that you respect the privacy of Ryan and his family during this time. We appreciate your patience and cooperation and will provide more information as it becomes available.”

 

O’Donnell said NASCAR would continue to work with Roush Fenway and Newman’s family to support them in any way.

 

“We ask that you respect their privacy, and going forward, we’ll provide updates as we can,” said O’Donnell. “But at this time, our thoughts are with Ryan and his family.”

 

The update on Newman’s condition was welcomed across the paddock, and prompted an immediate statement from Ford.

 

“We’re grateful for the news about Ryan,” said Mark Rushbrook, global director, Ford Performance Motorsports. “We had been waiting for information just like everyone else, so to hear some positive news tonight is a relief.  Ryan has been an important part of the Roush Fenway and Ford NASCAR program this past year, and he is so respected for being a great competitor by everyone in the sport. The entire Ford family is sending positive thoughts for his recovery, but our first thoughts remain with his family and his team.”

Audi will withdraw from the DTM at the end of 2020, leaving BMW as the sole manufacturer in the series.

 

I to bi bilo to sto se tice DTM.

Preskupa serija. Možda bi neka pravila koja vraćaju automobile originalu imala smisla. 

Struja za par godina?

Nesto su petljali prosle godine da se ujedinjuju sa japanskom SuperGT - ako ne u jednu seriju ono makar u istu specifikaciju pa da mogu isti auti i tamo i 'vamo. U svakom slucaju sa samo jednim proizvodjacem DTM nema nikakvog smisla.

Voleo bih da struja krene iz nekog od tih jakih nacionalnih šampionat.

FormulaE je za mene prevara i prodavanje magle.. tačnije zelene magle. Dovukli su gomilu poznatih imena i sve su vozači i ni jedan dizajner. Toliko o napretku. 

Nadam se da ću uskoro videti seriju u kojoj su konkurenti električni Mustang, BMW i5, E-Tron.. a, ne ovo sranje koje izgleda kao da je pobeglo iz teenage filma
