We got through parking, finished heats, completed the majority of alphabet soup, and ran some amazing qualifiers, so what now? Driller Day at the 36th annual Lucas Oil Tulsa Shootout.

A long, grinding week of hard work will culminate on Saturday night when seven Golden Drillers are handed out at the Tulsa Expo Center. Before tomorrow nightโ€™s main events, a set of 27 B-Mains and five Last Chance Qualifiers will hit the track to round of the feature fields.

After qualifiers, five drivers lead the way with three feature starts in the four primary classes. They include superstars like Alex Bright, Brian Carber, Tyler Courtney, Frank Flud and Kenny Miller III. Bright, Carber, Courtney and Flud all have a chance on Saturday to join the eliteโ€ quadruple dutyโ€ club with a position in every feature.

In the headlining 55-lap Winged Outlaw division, former Tulsa Shootout champions Joe B. Miller of Millersville, Mo. and Jonathan Beason of Broken Arrow, Okla. will lead the field to the green. Their front row battle of Hyper Racing vs. Ten-J Chassis is followed by a stout row two with USAC sensations Jason McDougal and Kevin Thomas Jr.

KTJ Locks Into Two A-Mains

KTJ is locked into two A-mains during Saturday's Driller Day.

The Okieโ€™s stepped up and defended their home turf in Outlaw Non-Wing qualifiers; resulting in an all Oklahoma front row with Claremoreโ€™s Kris Carroll and Muskogeeโ€™s Jake Nail in prime position. Theyโ€™re chased by a pair of PA Posse gassers in Alex Bright and Tommy Kunsman.

Saturdayโ€™s 30-lap A-Class affair is loaded at the front of the field. Pennsylvaniaโ€™s Brian Carber and Oklahomaโ€™s Jason McDougal lead the way, but behind them is an absurd group of Christopher Bell, Hank Davis, Jake Hagopian, Frank Flud, and Daison Pursley all in the first four rows.

Stock Non-Wing includes another ridiculous front few starters with Californiaโ€™s TJ Smith, All Stars Circuit of Champions racer Tyler Courtney, and soon-to-be Chili Bowl racer Brian Carber all starting 1-2-3.

FloRacingโ€™s full coverage of the 36th annual Lucas Oil Tulsa Shootout concludes tomorrow with an exciting finale set to crown the 2021 champions. You can watch it all on FloRacing beginning at 11:00am CT!
