It’s All About the Driller

Indoor midget racing dates back to the 1930s and for the most part has served as a fun wintertime diversion for fans and participants. While these races had a moment in the sun, they all pale in comparison to the widespread interest generated by the Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals. While it took a few years to catch on, there is no question the Chili Bowl is one of the crown jewels of short-track racing. It seems each year this race enters the consciousness of more casual fans. Grumblings about the payout for the Chili Bowl have been present for years. Some of that help may have lured a big name or two, and some has been offered to help a fledgling racer and team. What compounds this entire conversation are realities that expand beyond the Chili Bowl.
