It took only three years for a repeat winner to surface in Monday’s preliminary program at the Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Midget Nationals.

Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday; they all have their present rulers, but Monday has been up for the taking since it debuted in 2019. Last night, that finally changed.

For the second straight year, Cannon McIntosh stepped up and seized control, giving him the keys to officially lay claim to the kingdom of Monday night.

Last year, it was a bit of a shocker. At 17-years-old, in his maiden run with Keith Kunz Motorsports, McIntosh swept the program and held off Tyler Courtney and Michael Pickens to win the feature and become the youngest preliminary winner in Chili Bowl history.

Fast forward 12 months later, and he backed it all up. This time, he had to come from behind and pass Ryan Bernal on the fourth circuit, and then outrun Courtney for the second year. Proving it was no fluke, and at 18-years-old, this kid is the real deal. See full results from Monday night.

Trailing McIntosh to the stripe and offering him a series of spirited challenges was Tyler Courtney in the second spot. He went high and low aboard his Clauson-Marshall Racing, NOS Energy Drink TURBO No. 7C, testing the treacherous cushion and methodical berm to find any advantage he could. Sunshine got close on a handful of occasions, but ultimately settled to clinch the final lock-in position.

For Courtney, it’s his fifth consecutive main event appearance at the Chili Bowl, tying him with Shane Golobic for the third-longest active streak.

Following McIntosh and Courtney to the checkered flag with B-Main tickets was Blake Hahn, Chris Windom, David Gravel, Jacob Denney, Chase Briscoe and Tim McCreadie.

Drivers heading for the C-Main include Trey Marcham, Carson Macedo, Alex Sewell, Gary Taylor, Stephen Schnapf and Kory Schudy.

D-Main racers make up spots 15th-20th with Roger Crockett, CJ Leary, Steven Russell, Kade Morton, Riley Kreisel and Mitchel Moles.

The final group of racers heading for the E-Main is Clinton Boyles, Jerry Coons Jr., Ryan Bernal and Kevin Bayer.

The 35th annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Midget Nationals continues Tuesday with more preliminary action broadcasted live on FloRacing.
