Hot Shoes of HoJo at the 2017 Chili Bowl Nationals

The Howard Johnson Lima is excited to announce that 3 of the top driver in the world will be sporting the Howard Johnson-Lima logo at the 2017 running of the Chili Bowl Midget Nationals.  The perfect trifecta of Sheldon Haudenschild, Kyle Larson and Rico Abreu will all be driving cars sponsored in part by Ron Gorby’s Howard Johnson.  All three entries will be competing out of the Keith Coons stables for the event.

The Howard Johnson of Lima will be the primary sponsor for the Mike Larson owned Sheldon Haudenschild entry.  Haudenschild is one of the best young stars in the world of dirt track racing today.  He is coming off a great season in which he won 9 All Star Circuit of champion features, more than any other driver in the circuit.   He looks to continue his momentum into a Chili Bowl Midget National title.

Full time NASCAR Sprint Cup driver Kyle Larson will return to the dirt track of the Chili Bowl.  Larson was NASCAR’s 2014 Rookie of the year and qualified for this year’s Case for the Cup.  He is looking to improve on last year’s strong Chili Bowl feature performance where he started in at the number 22 position but managed to work his way up to a 5th place finish.

Rico Abreu is the reigning two time defending champion of the Chili Bowl event.  He is coming of an amazing year of racing and looks to make it 3 in a row in Tulsa.

With 3 great drivers and Keith Coons setting up the cars, Ron Gorby’s Howard Johnson of Lima looks to be a part of a 2017 Chili Bowl Midget Nationals Title.
