Berryhill Recovers to Finish Strong at 30th Annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl National’s Championship Night

Indianapolis, IN, January 21, 2016 – 2016’s 30th annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals saw Manic Racing’s Travis Berryhill recovering from a tough qualifying night to claim 20 positions in 20 laps, ending his Championship Night on a high note. Advancing from G Feature to F, then to E, Berryhill finished his 2016 Chili Bowl run in 7th position of E Feature.

Wednesday’s River Spirit Qualifying night saw Travis starting in pole position for his qualifier race, after advancing from 8th to 4th in Heat 9. Finishing 5th in the qualifier, Berryhill then moved to the night’s B Feature. Ultimately finishing 11th in B, Berryhill noted some frustration, saying “you have to be perfect here every lap and I wasn’t tonight.”

With significant adjustments made to Berryhill’s 11B between Wednesday and Saturday’s Championship Night, Travis set his sights on bouncing back to finish the week strong, preparing to start in 4th position of G Feature. Giving the team an unexpected new challenge, hot laps were cancelled due to an on track incident during Berryhill’s session, forcing the driver to adapt to prior changes made under green flag conditions.

Lining up for G Feature, Travis started and finished the race 4th, enough to claim a transfer spot and move on to F Feature. As the team hastily made minor repairs to the car, Berryhill had a brief moment to prepare for the next event. Using caution flags and adjusting his driving line to his advantage, Berryhill fought from 16th position in F Feature to claim 3rd. The top 4 transferred to E Feature, Travis included.

Again, minor adjustments were made to the car as Berryhill prepared for E Feature. Starting the race in 14th position, Travis then fought his way up to as high as 5th, eventually settling for a 7th position finish.

In all, Berryhill claimed 20 positions in two 10 lap features.

Travis noted, “I was pretty bummed about Wednesday, but feel like Saturday turned things around. The cars were fast Saturday and we proved that.”

Even though Berryhill’s Chili Bowl run ended in E Feature, his teammate David Budres, began his climb shortly thereafter. Starting 5th in D Feature after a decent Vacuworx Global Qualifying Night run Friday, Budres finished 4th, transferring to C, to start his next race in 18th. As he advanced through C Feature, David and another competitor were collected while racing hard out of Turn 4, causing Budres to flip. The team brought the car in to fix minor damage, however were unable to repair the car in time for green flag. This forced David’s run to end early, finishing 19th in C Feature.

Travis would like to thank, his crew, teammate David Budres and Manic Racing for their support in this year’s event, in addition to his sponsors, fans, family and friends for their continued backing in his pursuit of the Golden Driller.

Berryhill Returns to Tulsa in 2016 Pursuing Desired Driller

Indianapolis, IN, January 10, 2016 – Continuing his long-standing stretch of Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals appearances, American Canyon, California native Travis Berryhill returns to Tulsa, Oklahoma looking to capitalize on past performance in search of claiming the highly-coveted Golden Driller. For 2016’s event, Berryhill returns with Beloit, Wisconsin-based Manic Racing, his fourth appearance with the team at the renowned race. Berryhill first hits the track during practice Monday night, then again Wednesday evening for River Spirit Qualifying Night at Tulsa State Fairground’s QuikTrip Center ahead of Saturday’s Championship Night.

Since inception in 1987, the Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals have grown into an internationally-known event as the popularity of racing on dirt continues to soar. Considered the “Superbowl” of midget racing, top talent from 236 cities, 24 states and five countries make up the 343 entries for this year’s event, surpassing 2015’s record-setting 335 entries. Additionally, at-home viewership has reached an all-time high, including 2,000,000 during MAVTV’s broadcast peak in 2013, with all 50 US States and 70 countries represented.

Piloting the Stealth / Fontana / Racing2Cure.org / Hinchman Indy Racewear / Justice Brothers / Keizer Wheels 11B, Travis travels to Tulsa with one main goal in mind: run the A-Main Saturday night:
“To make the A-Main Saturday night and stay on the lead lap puts us in a good position at the end of the race, and to me that’s the ultimate goal. There’s a lot of talent and experience in the A, and track time here is important. You don’t want any DNFs. To get there, we have to complete every lap,” said Berryhill.
Berryhill will join Manic Racing teammate David Budres, Badger Midget Auto Racing Association’s latest crowned point’s champion. Driving the Stealth / Fontana / Racing2Cure.org / Simpson / Justice Brothers / Keizer Wheels 31B, Budres will also practice Monday evening, but qualifies Friday during Vacuworx Global Qualifying Night.

Berryhill noted, “I’m excited to be back with Manic Racing, teaming up with David again here in Tulsa. I certainly want to thank the team and my sponsors for supporting us and such a great opportunity, and look forward to getting on the track Monday night.”

'Spirit of American Canyon’ Comes Home to Victory Lane

Travis Berryhill, the Spirit of American Canyon, returned home for a weekend, and wound up in victory circle, at Lakeport Speedway Oct. 15. 

This reporter named Travis the “Spirit of American Canyon” several years ago when pitting with him on his race team. It was obvious he had a lifelong dedication to becoming a professional racecar driver as he grew up in American Canyon.
The visit was a planned event, as the Bay Cities Racing Association, (BCRA) hosted its last pavement race of the year. Driving the Bob Rosen No. 4 Mr. Espresso Special out of Oakland, Travis was third quick in time trials, won the dash, his heat race, and the main event. That was a successful night of racing.

Travis moved to Indianapolis three years ago to follow his dream of being a professional racecar driver.  Like Jeff Gordon, Travis grew up racing quarter midgets, and spent his early life racing instead of playing all the normal sports that other kids were playing as he grew up.  Many of his competitors had the same life.

Berryhill currently is a Race Shock Tech, at Advance Racing Suspensions, and races sprint cars on weekends. Indianapolis is still the center of racing, with many racetracks to compete at each weekend of the year. Wintertime in Indianapolis racing moves indoors.

Moving to Indianapolis also brought a weather change and living in snow country for the winter. Snow also brought the thrill of snow mobile riding and racing with friends.

In a post-race interview Travis dedicated the win to his grandfather Ed, who passed away last year. Ed supported Travis’s racing from the very beginning and attended every race, as a proud Grandpa.

Any racers, future racers, or race fans can contact Travis on his Facebook page, as well as TravisBerryhill.com  He will be glad to hear from you.
