COLUMBUS, Ind. – England’s Tom Harris has joined Keith Kunz-Curb Agajanian Motorsports to complete the team’s Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Midget Nationals roster.

Harris, from Manchester, England, will drive the J. Davidson Scrap/Toyota Racing No. 97K during the event in Tulsa, Okla., on Jan. 13-18.

“To receive the opportunity to join Keith Kunz Motorsports for the Chili Bowl is simply unbelievable,” said Harris. “I never thought I’d get the chance to compete alongside a top tier team like KKM. I’ll definitely be in the best equipment possible and I’ll be doing everything I can to put it in the show on Saturday night.”

Harris has attempted five straight events, with his most successful showing coming in 2018. A hard-charging 13th-to-fourth preliminary bid saw him only trail Kyle Larson, Brad Sweet and Tyler Courtney to the stripe. From there, a strong Saturday performance followed. He transferred out of the B-Main and qualified for his first Chili Bowl main event, finishing 16th.

“We’re excited to have Tom with us for Chili Bowl, he definitely adds a unique touch to our group,” said team owner Keith Kunz. “This deal kind of came together last minute, but we’ve seen his speed in Tulsa before and I know he’ll be a threat in our equipment next month.”

Harris will be part of an eight-car stable from the KKM squad during the Chili Bowl alongside two-time Chili Bowl champ Rico Abreu, Zeb Wise, Cannon McIntosh, Buddy Kofoid, Tucker Klaasmeyer, Holley Hollan and Presley Truedson.
