Can A Coil-Bound Car Win The Chili Bowl?

TULSA, Okla. – Leaving the River Spirit Expo Center on Friday night, the unasked question swirling around the Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals pit area was if a coil-bound midget could win the event. 25 to finish out the schedule, Thorson brought his coil knowledge with him, and the results were the same – if not better. He took the coils off his car and returned to the torsion bar setup that won him the Friday preliminary night feature last January, promptly driving through both the C and B Mains to make the 30-lap A Main. “Bars and coils react differently; you run coils up front in these cars, so when you’re running them it’s somewhat of a no-brainer to run coils in the back, just so you can keep the reaction of the car the same,” explained Thorson.
