Postcards From The Chili Bowl Day One: Travel Woes

When it comes to Dirt Midget racing in the United States the granddaddy of events is the annual Chili Bowl Nationals at the Tulsa Expo Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Pawcatuck driver Jacob Perry had originally planned to head to the event as a crew member for Kenney Johnson Motorsports, but then ended up landing a shot in the driver’s seat.

This week Perry takes RaceDayCT readers along for the full experience in his first foray into driving a Dirt Midget.

Perry will do a daily audio postcard from Tulsa to give a feel for what life is like on and off the track for a 20-year old taking in his first time at the Chili Bowl.

Perry will not only document what life is like trying to make into one of the biggest Dirt Midget races of all, but also everything else that goes into experiencing life as a driver running the Chili Bowl.

Click here to listen or click the postcard below. Access to the audio postcard is available to everyone for free through our RaceDayCT Patreon page.


  1. Not particularly interested in the Northeast’s gadabout flitting around a variety of racing series and venues in search of the next exciting opportunity. That however was impressive. Virtually nothing in the entry related to racing more like the account of an endurance test that he passed with flying colors. How do you remain cheery and upbeat or at the least fake it very well after an unexpected marathon of travel that would leave most of us apoplectic?
    So I wish the lad well in the far off land of Oklahoma where the wind comes sweeping down the plain.
