The Chili Bowl Nationals are set to start next week. Despite the name, the event has nothing to do with chefs and spice and everything to do with fast cars and talented drivers. The race is held every January in Tulsa, Oklahoma featuring drivers from across the nation.
There are dozens of drivers on the entry list from the Charlotte area. It includes Mooresville’s Gavan Boschele, who is among the youngest to complete in the race at just 14 years old. Race officials at the Chili Bowl tweaked the rules last year allowing drivers under the age of 16 to race.
