Fairfield, IL (12/11/2020)... MSW Motorsports is bringing a young but competitive lineup to the 35th Annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals. The Collinsville, Oklahoma based team will be featuring Red Bluff Outlaws stand out Casey Schmitz, USAC and POWRi Midget driver Karter Sarff, and USAC National Sprint Car winner Aaron Farney. A fourth driver will be announced soon.
Only two of MSW's drivers have Chili Bowl experience. One of them is Aaron Farney, who made his only appearance back in 2016. The 2015 USAC National Sprint Car Rookie of the Year has raced part-time over the last few years. In 2020, Farney had some impressive performances at Kokomo Speedway. One of them gaining 12 spots in the feature to earn a top 10.
Karter Sarff is the other driver with MSW that has experience inside the Tulsa Expo Center. Sarff made his Chili Bowl debut in 2020 with AJ Felker, where he made it to the E-Main. The 17-year-old from Mason City, Illinois ran select POWRi Midget races with Felker and Jay Mounce in 2020. Sarff was able to pick up 2 Top 5's and 4 Top 10's with his efforts. Karter had a nice year despite the COVID-19 pandemic and is ready to go for an experience he says is hard to describe. "The Chili Bowl is something you can't describe to someone. You have to be there to get the full experience. It gives me goosebumps just thinking about it and the atmosphere surrounding it."
The third driver for MSW may not have Tulsa experience, but that does not mean he is a slouch when it comes to wheeling a race car. Casey Schmitz comes from Chico, California, the land of Outlaw Karts. Casey is the 2018 Cycleland Speedway track champion for the Open class. After taking 2019 off, Schmitz placed second in the Cycleland points this year and currently sits 9th in the 500 Open class with the Red Bluff Outlaws. Before the USAC National Midget season ended, Casey was able to take part in the Western World Championships at Arizona Speedway. He adjusted well and improved throughout the weekend. Schmitz will look to use his bullring expertise when navigating the tight Chili Bowl traffic.
The fourth and final driver entry for MSW Motorsports is Jeremy Hill. The Connellsville, Pennsylvania native is making his first Chili Bowl Nationals appearance this year, driving the #4. Hill began racing in 2008 and has raced everything from four cylinders to ARCA Trucks to currently his own 410 Wing Sprint Car.
MSW Motorsports's driver lineup is set and ready to battle it out at the 35th Annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
