TWO TIMING IN TULARE: The World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series heads to the Golden State for the first of four straight weekends of competition, with the first stop coming at Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare, Calif. The Kyle Larson Racing team and Carson Macedo are set to be in action at the high-banked 1/3-mile circuit Friday and Saturday.
THUNDERBOWL HISTORY: Growing up in nearby Lemoore, Calif., Macedo considers Thunderbowl Raceway to be one of his home tracks, along with King’s Speedway in Hanford, Calif. He has eight starts at Thunderbowl Raceway with the World of Outlaws under his belt, including three top-10 scores. The 22-year-old earned his best finish with the Outlaws last year when he advanced seven positions to earn a top-five result. He also has two runner-up scores at the Peter Murphy Classic with the King of the West Sprint Car Series coming in 2017 and 2014, along with a runner-up finish in overall Trophy Cup points in 2015.
CALIFORNIA COMFORT: “I’m really excited to get back to my home track,” said Macedo. “It’s nice to be back in California and racing at some places that are familiar to me and where I feel I have a good chance at being comfortable right from the start. Hopefully I can get this KLR team our first win of 2019 and my first win at one of my favorite tracks.”
