    Default Night #2 Is In The Record Books

    Kyle Larson and Thomas Meseraull are locked into the Saturday night A-main. Larson won his heat, his qualifier and the A-main. That's a good night's work at The Chili Bowl. Christopher Bell won the Race of Champions and looked quite dominant doing it.

    The track was a rubbered up piece of crap during the final 2/3's of the A-main. I've been going to Tulsa for a long time and never have seen the track lock down as it did tonight. Tony Stewart is an A-hole but he knows how to prepare the track and I wish he was doing the prep again this year.

    Oh well, they can't all be great races so we'll hope for the best tomorrow night!!

    Here's the Tuesday night results.

    Larson started on the front row outside and got the lead just as the track locked down. Had the track not locked down I'm not confident that Larson would have stayed in front of Meseraull. Jonathon Beason appeared to be faster prior to the track lock down, as well. Kevin Swindell said after the race was over that the biggest drawback for Larson winning the way the track was is he learned nothing in regards to the Saturday night A-main setup. I'm sure Paul will figure it out. Larson said this is only the 2nd time since he's been coming to Tulsa that he remembers the track rubbering up like it did last night.

    Meseraull could have dumped Larson anytime he wanted to but cheap shots have never been Meseraull's style. There were a couple of heat races that were brutal in reference to yellow's and lack of continuity. Swindell said the way some of the guys were driving it looked like there was a full moon.

    Just for the record Kevin Swindell is doing a great job with color commentary on the prelim night broadcasts. We watch the Flo replay the morning after and Kevin is the best of the three in the booth.

    Thanks for letting us know that Kevin was doing the broadcast. I did not know that.

    The understanding we have from speaking to some of Chili Bowl officials is that Stewart will not be in Tulsa for The Chili Bowl. I'm relatively sure that his girlfriend of the week, if that's Leah, won't be with him. We spend a lot of time in the pits and we'll keep an eye out for Stewart and his squeeze. I don't know if I'd know Leah if she got within 2 feet of me. Plus, we're usually a bit busy during our time in the pit area but I promise if I see Stewart with a chick I'll try to get a photo.

    That means Stewart wonít be there to screw up the track. Thatís a very good thing. I see you are no drag racing fan. Check it out sometime. Itís actually pretty good 👍

    Young Conner Wade is very impressive too.

    Well, I don't know how much worse anyone could have screwed up the racetrack like it was on Tuesday night. I don't ever remember a Stewart prepared Chili Bowl track ever locking down like it did Tuesday night and I attended every year that Stewart was the track prep guy!

    I am a drag racing fan. I was a participant in drag racing for a decade or more before marital bliss and family changed my priorities. The drag racing I follow is not the fuel classes (top fuel and funny car). The fuel classes are extremely impressive but my love is for the door slammer classes that are a bit closer to stock. I've even lost interest in the pro-stock's. I simply can't relate to the technology involved with the fuel classes and pro-stock division. Doesn't make them bad or unentertaining but just not stuff I can relate to and fully understand.

    I agree with CIRF on his opinions on Drag Racing. Pro Stock , Funny Cars, and Top Fuel Cars are exciting for the newcomers to be awed and thrilled by, but I too find race cars I can relate to are the less expensive and more stock type cars. I used to follow Pro Stock , but the Pro Stock cars are just another form of a Funny Car today.

    Gotcha. We share that same enjoyment of drag racing. Leah actually still does some grassroots drag racing as well.

    My sentiments exactly, Mod. Top fuel and funny car engines and drive train's are some of the most impressive examples of engineering you'll find but they're way over the ability of my simple mind to understand and appreciate.
