Kinda surprised to not see TMAC on the entry list yet

The list just came out today & it's very early. There are 2 T-Mac's missing from the list still. And there's about 175-200 others that aren't on this list yet. Also, assuming McCreadie is driving for Andy Bondio again, I believe the entry's will be sent in by the car owner, not the drivers.

Rico says he and CJ Bell got the axe.

You're reading too much into that lol. It was a joke, sort of. Keith Kunz tweeted his new driver roster for the 2016 season a couple days ago, not counting the CB. Rico responded with a tweet of his own, stating that he & Christopher Bell got the axe, in a jokingly manner. Abreu & Bell will be competing in a lot more NASCAR events next year, they can't commit to the KKM Midget program full time, like they were this year.

Here is a pic of the Midgets that JJ Yeley & Austin Brown will run this Saturday during the Inaugural Bad Boy Buggies Indy Invitational @ Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Can't wait to check this show out this weekend! This is NOT the car that JJ Yeley will pilot @ the CB, but I'm positive that Austin Brown's car in this pic is his CB ride.

With last years CB setting a record for Pre-Entries of 330, smashing the previous record of 286 or 287, here is a little perspective of where things are at this year. Last year, the Entry List debuted at 94 on 12/5. This year the Entry List was unveiled on 12/4 with 144 Entrants, up 50 Entries in one less day than last year. This years list currently sits at 165 as of 12/7. Last year the list grew to 206 by 12/15, 285 on 12/20 & by 12/27 was sitting at 316.

So, this year the list is higher than last years at this point in time, could we see another record at this years CB? I am thinking it will be broken, if not, it will be very close to last years #. If the record is broken, then how many Entries could we actually see? I really believe that 350 is a legitimate amount, time will tell.

On a side note, if the Entry List continues this trend of remaining in the 325-350 range for years to come, I see the event becoming a 6 day deal. They are going to be forced, just like in past years, to add another Qualifying Day. As the CB has grown over the years, they have extended the week of racing. I think Monday will be added at some point as another Qualifying Night, should this continue to be 325+ in Entrants. Ideally, they would like to have 60-70 cars for each nights program. With last years car count, they had 80+ cars on each Qualifying Night. Should they get more cars for this years, this # clearly goes up each night, which in turn makes for each night to become a longer show. With the Tulsa Expo Center having a curfew, this makes that challenge much harder each night. When I went to my first CB in 2004, the event was Wed-Sat. There was no Tuesday Qualifying Night or a Monday Practice Day. These were added as the race grew larger. Time will tell whether this would ever happen, these are just my own thoughts on how this has played out in the past.

I saw that Tim Bertrand (NEMA midget multi-car team owner and former racer) sent a motor down South that may be fit into a car for Kevin Swindell to run with a great deal of custom work to get him back in a car...
