Christopher Bell took the 31st Annual Chili Bowl Midget Nationals Saturday night at the Tulsa Expo Center in Oklahoma. Bell held off World of Outlaw Regular Daryn Pittman for the win as the A-Main was marred by multiple restarts. Justin Grant completed the podium. Several well-known drivers were unable to make the A-Main due to not transferring out of their preliminary races on Saturday. Drivers like Donny Schatz, Jason Johnson, and Sammy Swindell failed to make the A-Main.
