Bart Hartman Competes in Chili Bowl, Florida Speedweeks Around Corner

ZANESVILLE, OHIO - January 18, 2006 - Bart Hartman recently returned home to the Buckeye State of Ohio after competing in the 20th Annual ‘O’Reilly Chili Bowl Midget Nationals’ at the Tulsa Expo Raceway in Tulsa Oklahoma last weekend. The Zanesville, Ohio native piloted a #75h entry, which sported a Stealth chassis and a Gaerte racing engine with sponsorship from Biscotti’s Restaurant & Winery, Scott Performance Wire, K&K Garage, Johnston Towing, and Johnston Realty. Bart’s run to make the starting grid for the prestigious Midget event was thwarted in his D-Main, when he could only muster a thirteenth place finish in the second D-Main. That finish was not good enough to advance Bart into the next event in the “alphabet soup”
racing format.

Bart’s weekend in Tulsa started out on Thursday when he took to the indoor track for his qualifying evening. He ran a solid fourth in his heat race, but finished tenth in the A-Main qualifier, which sent him to a B-Main event later on Thursday evening. The driver of the #75h finished eighth in his B-Main event, which qualified him for the D-Main on Saturday. It was Bart’s first time with the Walter Knepper owned team and Bart was very thankful to both him and the crew in a telephone conversation today.

“Everyone that came out to Tulsa with me, including myself, had a great time last week and I have to thank Walter and the entire team for giving me the opportunity to compete in the Chili Bowl,” commented Hartman. “It was a new team and it took a little time for me to get used to their car, but it was a strong car. We ran well in our heat race on Thursday, but dug ourselves into a hole by not finishing well in the Main events later that night.
Hopefully, I will get another opportunity to compete in next year’s Chili Bowl, as it is one of the great dirt races of the year.”

Fellow Dirt Late Model driver Tim McCreadie, of Watertown, New York shocked the open wheel racing world by winning the 20th annual ‘O’Reilly Chili Bowl Midget Nationals.’ T-Mac bested Jay Drake, Cory Kruseman, Brad Kuhn, and Josh Wise to bring home the biggest win of his career.

The next time Bart will hit the track will be behind the wheel of his familiar UrgentCash / Gress Oil / Imler’s Poultry #75 Rocket / Cornett Grand Prix on February 6-11. The Zanesville, Ohio native is scheduled to compete in all six nights of the annual 'Winternationals' at the East Bay Raceway Park in Gibsonton, Florida. All six races will be sanctioned by the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series. You can learn more about these events by visiting www.eastbayracewaypark.com and www.lucasdirt.com.

Following the six nights at East Bay, Bart is planning on competing February
13-18 at the famed Volusia Speedway Park in Barberville, Florida. The UMP Racing Series will sanction four of the events, while the other two races will be held under the World of Outlaws Late Model Series banner. Visit www.volusiaspeedwaypark.com and www.woolms.com to learn more about all of the action at VSP.
