Kyle Larson joined the ranks of Midget Racing’s elite, and continued to rehab his reputation, with a repeat victory in the 35th annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals Saturday night in Tulsa, Okla.

Larson led the 55-lap A-Feature wire-to-wire en route to a green-white-checkered flag victory and second consecutive Golden Driller Award. Despite leading every lap, a combination of caution flags and challenges from Justin Grant and fellow-NASCAR rival Christopher Bell tested Larson around River Spirit Expo Center’s ever-changing, quarter-mile clay oval.

“To get two of these (trophies) feels awesome,” said Larson as his son, Owen, hand-delivered the Golden Driller post-race. “It was a different race than last year, but just thankful to get the chance to even come race here. I think a lot of us thought maybe we wouldn’t get to come run the Chili Bowl with the (COVID-19) pandemic going on, so hats off to Emmett Hahn and everyone else with this event. It’s the greatest event in the world, and very lucky to be a part of it.”

Last January, Larson found redemption from a last-lap loss to Bell in 2019, emerging from their one-on-one battle as champ of the 34th edition of “The Super Bowl of Midget Racing.” Competing in his 13th Chili Bowl and ninth A-Feature, Larson prevented Bell from securing a record-tying fourth consecutive Golden Driller Award.

A 28-year-old native of Elk Grove, Calif., Larson launched defense of his 2020 title to headline Day 2 of the week-long event. Larson’s fourth Warren CAT Qualifying Night victory in as many years punched his ticket into Saturday’s A-Feature for the 10th time since 2010. Larson posted his seventh prelim night win in the MAVTV No. 01/JV1 Group King-Toyota he also owns.

Grant, the 2020 USAC Silver Crown National Champion and winner of Friday night’s 30-lap A-Feature, posed an early threat in his NOS Energy Drink No. 2J. Diamonding off Turn 4 on Lap 15, caution lights greeted the field as Kyle Cummins slowed with a flat tire. Pulling away from Grant on the restart, Larson found traffic on Lap 26. Larson managed to put a trio of slower cars between himself and Grant, who was about to have his hands full with Bell _ just as the caution again waved.

Rolling back to green with 37 laps to run, Larson put time on the field. Taking second from Grant on Lap 46, Bell began to close rapidly. On the back bumper of Larson with five laps to go, Bell turned under Larson off Turn 4 after Larson ‘biked’ his car on the cushion. Keeping Bell’s iRacing No. 84X to his rear, the field went back to single-file when Blake Hahn spun on Lap 51.

The ensuing restart saw Bell up on the wheel and looking for a spot to pass. That bid ended when Bell, a native of Norman, Okla., slammed the cushion in Turn 3 and flipped violently into the fence. Bell, 26, exited the wreckage uninjured. Bell, who will drive Joe Gibbs Racing’s No. 20 Toyota Camry fulltime in NASCAR’s Cup Series in 2021, finished 14th.

Grant advanced into second and took a shot at Larson on the restart but was unable to clear, instead slamming the cushion and forcing the field to hit the brakes. Tyler Courtney got crossed-up in the slowdown and went over.

Larson’s margin of victory over Grant under the GWC condition was 1.246-seconds. Tanner Thorson moved up eight spots in the 24-car field for third, with Oklahoma teen-ager Cannon McIntosh fourth. Owasso’s Daryn Pittman emerged as the night’s Hard Charger with a run from 20th to fifth.

Chris Windom moved from 14th to sixth with Cup Series regular Ricky Stenhouse Jr. placing seventh. Advancing 11 spots, Brad Sweet made it to eighth. Spencer Bayston made up six positions to ninth, with Logan Seavey wheeling 17th to 10th.

“I had to work way harder for that one (victory) than last year’s,” Larson said during an interview on MAVTV. “I could feel Grant pressuring me pretty much the whole race. There in the middle portion, the track really ‘curbed-up.’ It wasn’t bad then. But at the end it built up a massive curb and I was trying to run hard…but when I would run hard I’d slam it (the cushion). If I ran easy, I’d get right against it. Once I saw Bell had gotten to second, I knew I had to be smarter and not make massive mistakes or I’d let him get by. I made a lot of massive mistakes during that race.”

Larson’s 2020 season was marked by one huge personal mistake and eventually a second chance at competing in NASCAR. Larson lost his fulltime Cup Series ride in the No. 42 Chevrolet Camaro with Chip Ganassi Racing after uttering a racial slur during an iRacing event while the Cup schedule was shut down by the pandemic. Larson spent the summer barnstorming and dominating the nation’s dirt track scene before signing last fall with team-owner Rick Hendrick and Hendrick Motorsports for a return to Cup as driver of the No. 5 Camaro in 2021.

Chase Elliott, the reigning Cup Series champion and Larson’s HMS teammate-to-be in 2021, finished seventh in Saturday’s F-Main and did not advance as a Chili Bowl rookie. Elliott was one of 309 drivers on hand for the 35th annual winter event. Saturday’s schedule included 25 Features starting with twin M-Features. The Pole Dash added four rounds to the count. The night’s overall Hard Charger was Jason McDougal, who advanced position 54 times through six rounds (I-Feature through the D-Feature) during the famed “Alphabet Soup” program.

Five-time Chili Bowl champion Sammy Swindell, 65, was eliminated by a four-car crash in the opening laps of his C-Feature. At the other end of the age scale, 16-year-old Oklahoman Daison Pursley was crowned 2021 Chili Bowl Rookie of the Year after a 10th-place finish in the first Dave.com B-Feature. The WorldWide Technology Raceway Flip Count made it to 69, with all drivers emerging uninjured.

The 36th annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire is scheduled for Jan. 10-15, 2022 at Tulsa Expo Raceway, located inside the River Spirit Expo Center. Ticket renewals, and new orders, will begin on Wednesday, March 3, 2021. More information on prices will be posted soon.
