Sprint Car driver Justin Grant was the latest driver to win a feature at the Chili Bowl Nationals before the main event on Saturday night at the Tulsa Expo Raceway in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Grant has received a bid into the feature in the “World Series of Sprint Cars.”

The Ione, California native was able to win the race after starting second in the A-Feature. He won the 30-lap feature.
