Two-time Chili Bowl king Rico Abreu made quick work of the competition on Wednesday night - leading all 25 laps to take the A Main and slot into Saturday night's main event.

Starting second in the Keith Kunz Spike/Toyota, Abreu pounced on polesitter Tyler Thomas on Lap 15 and never relinquished the top spot as he completed a ideal evening at the Tulsa Expo Raceway. Abreu had not raced since September because of injuries he suffered in a race at Eldora Speedway.

The NASCAR star drove to a commanding victory in Tuesday night's opening night of the Super Bowl of Midget Racing.

A put-back and ensuing free throw by Justin Robinson provided the Hokies with a 73-66 lead with just under two minutes remaining. That was the end of a long 16-8 run that spanned almost seven minutes, and it gave the home team life at the end of the game.

The top-three finishers in each of the four qualifying nights (the 357 drivers entered compete in one qualifying night) advance to the 55-lap championship race, with the remaining 12 spots filled by heat races throughout the day Saturday. Joining Abreu in advancing were Tyler Thomas and Kevin Thomas Jr.

Also advancing to the main event was, a World of Outlaws Sprint auto regular and the brother of Larson's fiancée, as well as Tyler Courtney. He won the Chili Bowl Nationals main event in 2015 and 2016. All three advanced to Saturday night's finale.
