TULSA, Okla. – It was history in the making when Kevin Swindell grabbed back-to-back Lucas Oil Chili Bowl National titles.

It is unprecedented to say that the Germantown, Tenn. drivers now holds four consecutive Golden Drillers.

In what will be remembered as one of the most memorable Chili Bowl National “A” Features, the “Bulldog” had to prove his worth to stand atop the podium, after challenges from his Father and finally California’s Kyle Larson.

From three wide to lap after lap of exchanging slide jobs, with every lap caught on tape by Lucas Oil Productions and now ready to be shown to the world.

Confirmed by Lucas Oil Productions, the 27th running of the Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire will be show on Sunday, Feb. 10, 2013 at 4pm, ET.

The NBC Sports Network broadcast is slated for a one-hour presentation and is listed under the title “Motorsports Hour.” For a list of providers, please go to to input your ZIP or Postal Code for a complete listing of providers.

    The only thing memorable about it was how rigged the race was. It certainly wasn’t because of the “racing” on the track, save for the first quarter of course, after that it was sheer boredom. I’ve been going there since 89′ and it was literally the worst race in memory. The last half was strictly one lane on the bottom. Go high and try to pass and it was like throwing out a parachute. Even if I had NBC Sports Network, I wouldn’t waste my time watching any part of it.
