MOORESVILLE, N.C. (October 22, 2019) – The Kyle Larson Racing team and Carson Macedo wrapped up a weekend in the Midwest this past Saturday night with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Sprint Car Series. Friday night at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan., Macedo was running inside the top 10 before suffering some damage resulting in a 12th-place finish. The following night, he was running inside the top 10 when he was spun by another competitor but was able to rebound for a 14th-place finish.
Friday night at Lakeside Speedway, the Lemoore, Calif., native qualified 14th and advanced to finish third in the second heat race of the night. After starting 10th in the 30-lap feature event, Macedo worked his way up to the seventh spot before contacting the wall while trying to pass on another competitor. Unfortunately, the contact resulted in damage to the Chevrolet Accessories/ Tarlton and Son, Inc./ Complete Parts and Equipment Solutions No. 2, but Macedo was able to hang on for a 12th-place finish.
The following night, Macedo qualified 13th at Lake Ozark Speedway for the Jason Johnson Classic and finished fifth in the opening heat race. He started 14th in the 41-lap feature event and was running eighth before getting spun by another competitor with less than 10 laps remaining. Despite having to go to the rear of the field, Macedo was able to work his way back up to a 14th-place finish.
“This weekend was just not our weekend,” said Macedo. “I felt like we had the chance to put together a couple of solid runs and it just didn’t work out that way in the end. My team did a great job both nights of giving me a great car for the feature after a pretty average qualifying effort. We got up just outside the top 5 the first night and I just got into the fence. It caused a ton of damage, so I just limped around to finish 12th. As for the next night, it was kind of the same. Running inside the top 10 and just got spun out by another car. I feel bad for my team because I know we were better than our results show both nights.”
The Kyle Larson Racing team will be back in action this Friday and Saturday at Port Royal Speedway for the Nittany Showdown.
