Landon Simon to Represent Mt Baker Vapor at 2017 Chili Bowl Nationals
Sprint Car driver Landon Simon, 27, will pilot the Mount Baker Vapor-sponsored, Esslinger-powered XXX chassis at the Chili Bowl Nationals, January 7–15. This year, the midget team is owned by Simon and operated out of the Landon Simon Racing stable in Brownsburg, Indiana. The current Indianapolis-based driver will represent his home state of Ohio for the sixth Chili Bowl Nationals to date; his third with Mount Baker Vapor on board and his first as a midget-car owner. This is the 31st annual running of the Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire and held at the River Spirit Expo Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The Chili Bowl is one of the largest indoor racing events in the world; the list of entries currently stands at a record-breaking 363. Along with primary sponsor Mount Baker Vapor, the team is partnering with Dave and Buster’s Tulsa for the five-day event, located a short drive from the Tulsa Expo Center where the Chili Bowl will take place. Practice will be held Monday, January 9, with preliminary events January 10–13, followed by the $10,000 to win main event Saturday, January 14.
