The Chili Bowl Nationals is almost here, but before that can happen, there is still one event left. This event is called the Tulsa Shootout, and a few NASCAR drivers are eager to watch the race. Among them are Kevin Harvick, Justin Marks, and Chase Briscoe.
So far, Christopher Bell is the only NASCAR driver racing at Tulsa. However, he will have stiff competition from the other drivers who are quite experienced in the dirt arena.
It is also worth mentioning that this is the first time Harvick is watching the race, cheering for driver Brent Crews.
The winners of the various heats, qualifying mains, and last chance showdowns will have a psychological advantage. In the buildup to the Chili Bowl Nationals, there have been countless number of races across multiple divisions.
Admittedly, Christopher Bell could be one of the favorites to win the race. He will also be looking forward to the coming weekend’s Chili Bowl Nationals.
Bell may have won that race a few times, but there are other drivers who can give him a run for his money. Among them is Kyle Larson, who is well known for being a versatile racer. In 2020, Larson competed in various dirt races, which could give him a leg up on the competition.
However, the proof is in the pudding, and the Chili Bowl Nationals is a hugely prestigious event. Aside from Bell and Larson, there are a number of drivers who are just as capable of winning the race. Admittedly, Kevin Harvick is not in the roster for the Chili Bowl Nationals, but is content with watching it from the comfort of his home.
It is also worth noting that these races will also be good practice for the participating NASCAR drivers. It will keep them active in the off-season and sharpen their skills for the coming season.
