Nine Racing Returns to Night Before 500 Race with Chili Bowl Champion Kevin Swindell

Laguna Beach, California — Fresh off winning the coveted 2010 Chili Bowl, Kevin Swindell has his sights on another major event in midget racing—the 65th Annual Night Before the 500 midget race at O'Reilly Raceway Park, on Saturday, May 29. Kevin will run this prestigious event in the #9 Esslinger-powered Nine Racing BEAST midget.

Kevin has already found success at the Indianapolis .686-mile oval by winning the 62nd Annual Night Before the 500 in a convincing fashion. "I am pleased and excited to be a part of the Nine Racing program for this race," said Kevin. "I am looking forward to a good run at ORP and working with Glenn Martin, Dave Steele, and Rusty Kunz on putting together a winning package."

"The annual Night Before 500 midget race is a truly important event on the USAC schedule and our team is pleased to have Kevin as a driver for this race," added team owner Steve Lewis.

The Night Before the 500 event has brought the Nine Racing team a number of trophies throughout the years, with wins by drivers Kasey Kahne, Dave Steele, Stevie Reeves, and Mike Fedorcak.
