Say What!

"Once in a lifetime. This week was once in a lifetime, "It's special to win the Chili Bowl. With over 300 something cars, it's always going to be special, but I'm disappointed. I feel like Kyle got robbed, I got robbed, and the fans got robbed. I wanted to race it out, and I know the fans wanted us to race it out too so I'm disappointed we didn't get to do that, but I'd rather be lucky than good any day,"Christopher Bell 2018 Lucas Oil Chili Bowl winner

 I'm always thinking about going high,I knew the bottom would be slowing down. It was getting pretty thin there so I figured I could just bail off to the top and make up some ground on them."Justin Grant Friday night Lucas Oil Chili Bowl winner

"It's just good racecars. That's what it really boils down to. All my teammates have been really fast all week long. Keith just brings really, really good cars here." Christopher Bell Thursday night Lucas Oil Chili Bowl winner

“That’s some intense shit, I don’t think it gets any better or intense than that, especially because you are racing for the lead. On these slide jobs, people come up short and run into each other and that’s when you see wrecks, but I feel like it goes both ways in these situations where if you’re the leader getting slid, you let out of the gas and let them slide across, then turn down and drive right back by him. That’s the way it was done tonight.” Wednesday night Lucas Oil Chili Bowl winner Rico Abreu.

“It’s great to get a win for my Dad. I haven’t been in a car he’s owned since I was in Karts,” said Tuesday night winner Kyle Larson who will take the green in his sixth Lucas Oil Chili Bowl championship event on Saturday night.

We believe that this is the perfect time for us to reevaluate and do some things that we have always talked about but could never find the time to do. That does not mean that you wont see us at a race track supporting the sport that we love. We want to thank Tim Kaeding for honoring us by driving our car the last three years. We want to thank everyone that has worked on our car, especially Craig Boll, Gage Bader and Nate Gardner for all their hard work and dedication. We could not have been as successful as we were with out the support of our many amazing sponsors, you are truly appreciated. A special thank you to our friends, family and fans for supporting us throughout the years. We have made many great friends on this journey. The sprint car world is truly an unbelievable place.
