Rico Abreu’s description of the 30th annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals?

“That was pretty bad-ass!”

And those five words were a fitting description of the night for the 23-year old, St. Helena, Calif. native, who rocketed past polesitter and late-race leader Bryan Clauson coming to the 10-to-go mark and proceeded to drive off into the Oklahoma night.

In doing so, Abreu led the final 11 laps of Saturday night’s Lucas Oil championship A-main en route to his second-straight Chili Bowl crown.

The young superstar announced on Friday morning that he would be piloting a NASCAR Camping World Truck full-time in 2016, but said immediately after the checkered flag on Saturday night that nothing in the moment was going to top the feeling of climbing the fence and then hoisting his second Golden Driller trophy.

“These guys — Keith Kunz and Pete Willoughby — it’s just phenomenal to be able to race with them,” an emotional Abreu smiled. “This is another one of those moments that you cherish. It’s so cool to win this race two years in a row. That doesn’t happen too often at all, but especially here. It’s unbelievable.”

Clauson led the field to the green flag after winning the pole position during Friday night’s Pizza Express Pole Shuffle, but quickly fell back on the bottom as Christopher Bell surged to the early lead from the outside pole. Bell would lead the first nine laps before making contact with C.J. Leary and spinning in turn four, which drew the night’s opening caution flag.

That handed the lead to Clauson, who drove off the front of the field and at times head a nearly two-second lead before encountering traffic on lap 20 that allowed Zach Daum to close in. Just before Daum could make a move to challenge Clauson for the race lead, the caution flew for the second time when Justin Grant flipped two laps before halfway. He was uninjured and walked away from the accident scene, but his night was over.

Once the restart flew and the race hit halfway, reigning event champion Rico Abreu began to make his charge to the front. He passed Tim McCreadie and Alex Bright for fourth and third, respectively, on lap 32 and began to chase down Daum for the runner-up role.

Before he could do that, the caution flew on lap 33 for a flip by Alex Bright that re-stacked the deck and set the stage for a dicey finish. Clauson pulled out to a second and a half lead during the ensuing run that went for six laps as Abreu and Daum scrapped for second, but the fourth caution of the night with 16 circuits remaining drew the field back together yet again.

Then came the restart and red flag that set the stage for Abreu’s pass for the win.

The reigning Chili Bowl winner made a gutsy pass for second to Daum’s inside just before the red flag flew for a medical emergency in the grandstands. At first, race officials placed Daum back ahead of Abreu, but after review the pass was ruled to count and put Abreu on Clauson’s tail tank with 15 to go and a Golden Driller on the line.

The sixth and final yellow flag with 12 trips around to go, caused by a crash that swept up NASCAR star Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and five-time Chili Bowl champion Sammy Swindell, allowed Abreu the chance he needed and on the restart, he pounced. While Clauson led the first trip around after the green, Abreu dove to the bottom entering turn one and made the slide job stick — marking the pass for the win as Abreu topped the field by 0.937 seconds at the twin checkers.

“The red flag helped because I was able to calm down after I got worked up racing with Zach. Once we got going again, I knew I needed to get going,” Abreu said. “It was time, and when Keith told me to ‘Get going,’ I knew I had to do just that. It was all about not making mistakes and we were perfect when it counted.”

Clauson was also looking for his second Chili Bowl win, but was forced to settle for second after Abreu’s late race pass. While it was a bitter pill to swallow for the 2014 winner, he lauded the winner for his thrilling late race performance.

“The late cautions were enough to get [Rico] to our bumper there,” Clauson lamented. “I was talking to (car owner) Rusty [Kunz] before the race and said it wasn’t so great to start out front because you can’t maneuver and you’re in protect mode all night trying not to make mistakes. Once he got around us I could start to see what I needed to do, and I got close to him coming back to the white, but didn’t put the corner together that I needed to in one and two to throw the slider.”

“Rico did a great job though. You hate to lose one like that, but it’s been a lot of fun racing with him the last couple of years. He went from a driver who couldn’t put 10 laps together to a premier race car driver that’s one of the best in the country. It’s fun to be a part of and we’ll be back to try and get another one next year.”

Daum rounded out the podium with a career-best effort inside the River Spirit Expo Center, finishing third after running among the leaders all night long.

“We’re gonna have to get a little better to win this thing — as long as Keith and Rusty are here we’re going to have to do our homework — but ovderall I can’t complain a bit. It’s an honor to run third …run top five … even make the show here, honestly. I’m thrilled. We needed a little bit more in three and four, but I can’t complain. Rico’s a wild-man though, congrats to him on getting it done.”

Jerry Coons Jr. finished fourth in his 13th consecutive Chili Bowl A-main and 17th overall, with Kyle Larson coming out of the B-main and garnering Hard Charger honors on finale night after he moved from 22nd to round out the top five.

While Abreu took home the big trophy, the day’s alphabet soup saw numerous drivers shine in their respective quests to try and make the prestigious 55-lap A-main.

Mark Chisholm and J.D. Black kicked off their “runs through the alphabet” in style, winning their respective N-Mains and moving through three races in total — all the way up to the L-Mains. Travis Young and Chris Sheil claimed victory in the M-Mains, with Isaac Schreurs and Mitchell Faccinto taking the L-Mains as the Saunders brothers, Eric and Garrett, both saw their nights come to an end in those races.

Ashley Hazelton and Marcus Thomas grabbed the checkers in the two K-Mains, as Randi Pankratz and Evan Pardo stormed to J-Main wins. Evan Sewell and Riley Kreisel split the I-Main checkers and were followed in victory lane by Shawn Jackson and John Hunt, who each took a win in the two H-Mains.

Chris Urish and Dean Drake Jr. were winners in the G-Main features, with Jake Neuman and Kevin Ramey scoring in the pair of F-Mains. Tyler Edwards and Trey Marcham shared the glory in the night’s E-Mains as big names including Tim Crawley and Alex Bowman were knocked out of competition in that pair of races.

Nick Knepper and “Sunshine” Tyler Courtney took their respective D-main wins before the action moved over to MAVTV for the live television broadcast, which first saw Cory Kruseman and Tony Bruce Jr. top their respective fields to claim the 15-lap scores and tag the tail of the two B-mains.

In the first of those 20-lap “last chance” contests, reigning USAC National Midget Champion Tracy Hines took the win after race leader Jonathan Beason lost a right-rear tire and had to pit with five laps remaining. That event also saw a four-car melee on the race’s second-to-last restart where Justin Peck — who was running in the final transfer spot at the time — and Chad Boat flipped in the middle of a four-car crash on the frontstretch that shuffled the top six and ended their nights just shy of the coveted A-main.

The second B-main saw Stenhouse Jr. grab the lead from polesitter CJ Leary on lap five of 20 and roll on to lead the second set of six transfers into the championship bout. The big incident in that event came on lap eight, when teenage star Parker Price-Miller nearly flipped while running second after contact with Shane Golobic, but the dash to the A-main also saw Larson move from 12th on the grid to fifth, transferring to the championship feature after a crash with a lapped car kept him from the win during his preliminary night on Tuesday.

Sammy Swindell received the “Promoter’s Provisional” after he failed to transfer out of the second D-main, and as such became the 25th and final starter for the 30th anniversary event.

An event-record 335 drivers competed in this year’s Chili Bowl Nationals, surpassing the 2015 mark of 326 and reaffirming the Chili Bowl’s status as the biggest open-wheel midget event in the world.

The 31st annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals will be held Jan. 10-14, 2017. For more information, visit www.chilibowl.com.
