SANDUSKY, Ohio (January 5, 2018) – Returning to Tulsa, Oklahoma, for his 23rd time, Tracy Hines heads to this year’s 32nd Annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals Presented by General Tire in search of another Golden Driller trophy with Ride Television Network, Inc. by his side. Hines, ThorSport Racing’s Competition Director, and RIDE TV, a valued partner with the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series team, looks to repeat the USAC Triple Crown and Chili Bowl champion’s win from 2005.
RIDE TV, the first high definition American cable television network and website dedicated to horse culture and lifestyle, features shows such as “Swamp Donkey,” “Rock Star Vets,” “Southern Fried Skinnyfied,” along with several others. Formed in 2012 and based in Fort Worth, Texas, RIDE TV is carried by many major television communications companies including Dish Network, across North America and internationally.
With RIDE TV adorning the side of his No. 24 RIDE TV Toyota Spike midget, the New Castle, Indiana, native will first take to the track for practice Monday, January 8, before competing in the VIROC Race of Champions Tuesday, and qualifying Thursday at the River Spirit Expo during the John Christner Trucking Qualifying Night.
“Saddling up with RIDE TV and Toyota next week in Tulsa, I’m really looking forward to getting on the track,” expressed Hines. “Running my Carolina Nut Company winged sprint car this past year in multiple races really kept my racing fire burning, and I feel it’s going to help me next week in Tulsa. I’m grateful to have RIDE TV and Toyota both behind me for the ‘Super Bowl of Midget Racing,’ and after training for the last two months, my car and I are in ‘riding’ shape and ready to go!”
The 32nd Annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals Presented by General Tire kicks off Tuesday in Tulsa, available on pay-per-view throughout the week leading up to Saturday’s main event, with MAVTV broadcasting live starting at 8:30 p.m. ET Saturday, Jan. 13.
