Paul Nienhiser Set for Chili Bowl with Jim Neuman


PETERSEN MEDIA: Competing for a couple different teams at Chili Bowls gone by, Paul Nienhiser will compete for Jim Neuman during the 2020 edition of the event as he will join a team made up of Mike Hess, Jake Neuman, and Tim McCreadie.

“It will be great to get another shot to work with the Neuman’s, and get back to the Chili Bowl,” Paul Nienhiser said. “I raced with them at Belleville in 2018, and I grew up racing with Quarter Midgets and Micros with Jake Neuman, so it’s been a pretty long-standing friendship.”

Looking like he would be on the sidelines at this year’s Chili Bowl one year removed from his best showing at the event, a deal Jim Neuman came together last minute and the Chapin, IL driver couldn’t be more excited.

“After Charlotte, I really didn’t think I was going to have anything to run in at Chili Bowl, but this whole deal came together pretty late, and I am excited to get back in some really good equipment,” Nienhiser explained. “I had some great people step up and make this all possible, and I have to thank CAM2, Mike and Caleb Wankel with AB&C Mini Storage and American Rentals, Renaissance Hotel, Premier Powder Coating, Tim Hughes with Big T’s Video Poker and Slots, and the Auringer Family with Innovative Designs.”

In what will be his first Midget start since last year’s Chili Bowl Midget Nationals, Nienhiser will look to keep his trend up of bettering his previous Chili Bowl. During the 2019 event, a part failure while leading the Saturday night ‘C’ would bring his week to an end.

“I am really looking forward to getting underway in Tulsa, OK,’ Nienhiser said. “The Neuman’s have built a great team, and I am looking forward to working with everyone involved.”

Nienhiser would like to thank CAM2 Blue Blood Racing Oil, Mason Sound, Innovative Design, Bradshaw Custom Pumping, Wessler Bros. Agency, Bob Hawks Auto Body, Littleton Storm & Timber, Fierce Herbicide, Sunstoppers Window Tinting, Engler Machine and Tool, FK Indy, Rider Racing Engines, Kaeding Performance, Smith Titanium Products, Vortex Wings,  Signature Signs and Design, and Team Simpson for their continued support.

2019 BY THE NUMBERS: Races-48, Wins-12, Top 5’s-21, Top 10’s-28

ON TAP: Nienhiser will be in action at the Gateway Dirt Nationals in St. Louis, MO December 19-21.
