Sammy Swindell Reaches Championship Race

Posted: Updated:

The Expo Center was packed Wednesday for the second night of the Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals.

Five-time champion Sammy Swindell put himself in position to win number six.  He won the number-four qualifying race and then went on to take the checkered flag in the A-Main.

That locks him in to Saturday's Championship race for the fifth straight year.  He's finished second to his son Kevin Swindell the last two years.

Kevin has been the three-time Chili Bowl Champion.

Races continue Thursday at the Expo Center.  Hot laps begin at 5:00pm.  The races start at 6:00pm.
