With about 15 laps to go in the 32nd Annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals it looked as if 2018 was the year that Kyle Larson would finally score a Golden Driller of his own.

His friends like Rico Abreu and Christopher Bell had already won the Chili Bowl, but he hadn’t. But with 10 laps to go, fate decided it had other plans. Larson’s engine went up in smoke, and so too did his Chili Bowl dreams. Bell went by and went on to score the win in his favorite race for the second year in a row. Larson finished 19th due to the engine failure. Behind Bell by about a second and a half finished two-time Chili Bowl champion Rico Abreu.
