NITTANY SHOWDOWN: The stage is set for the final battle of the season between the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series and the Pennsylvania Posse in this weekend’s Nittany Showdown. Carson Macedo and his Kyle Larson Racing team are ready to head back to the steel state for back-to-back nights at Port Royal (Penn.) Speedway.

PORT ROYAL HISTORY: Macedo has one previous start at the Speed Palace, coming last year for the Tuscarora 50 piloting the Jason Johnson Racing No. 41. He was the quickest qualifier of the opening flight of time trials and advanced two spots in his heat race to finish second. After starting seventh in the 50-lap feature event, Macedo ran as high as fifth before slipping back to a 14th-place finish.

MACEDO ON PORT: “I’m excited to get to Port Royal,” said Macedo. “Pretty much every video that you see from there is always a good race. It seems like the track gets really wide and everyone can move around, which creates great racing. The KLR guys have been working hard all week to give me a great racecar, so hopefully we can go there and put some good results on the board.”
