While the card is subject to change, the qualifying night lineups for the 35th Chili Bowl Midget Nationals have been released.

To make the main event next Saturday night, drivers will have to finish inside the top two from each A-Main during their qualifying night effort. The 10 who qualify into the main event via their respective A-Main will also be entered into the pole dash races that takes place on Saturday evening.

Preliminary night winners will redraw for positions one through five with the second-place finishers of the preliminary features redrawing for positions six to 10.

The first pole dash will be the drivers who draw six to 10 lined up in that order with the top two advancing into the second pole dash. Those two drivers will line up behind the drivers who drew fifth and sixth with the top-two drivers again moving on to face the drivers who drew three and four. The top two will again advance to those who drew one-two with that race determining the first four starting positions in the main event.

The rest of the main event top-10 starting spots will be determined based on order of pole dash eliminations.

The higher a driver finishes in his qualifying night, the fewer number of races he or she will have to race in to advance throughout the Alphabet Soup of eliminations throughout Saturday.

The qualifying night lineups can be found below.
