Larson Captures Inaugural Event at Stockton 99 Dirt Track

The NASCAR driver earns his first WoO STP Sprint Car Series win of season

STOCKTON, Calif. — March 22, 2013 — Not too bad for a part-timer.

After hitching a ride in NASCAR star Tony Stewart’s plane, Kyle Larson, the newest NASCAR sensation, picked up his first World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series victory of the season on Friday in front of a sold-out crowd during the inaugural event at Stockton 99 Dirt Track.

“I’ve got to start off by thanking Tony for letting my fly on his jet here to the races,” he said. “Without him, I wouldn’t be here.”

The win was Larson’s third in as many seasons as he heads back to Fontana, Calif., for Saturday’s NASCAR Nationwide Series event in Southern California.

With estimates of more than 10,000 spectators at Friday’s World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series event, a pair of California stars duked it out after outlasting the attrition. There were nearly a dozen flips on the new 3/8-mile track that was built inside the old horse racing track at the San Joaquin Fairgrounds.

Paul McMahan, who became the ninth different dash winner in as many features this season, led the first two laps of the 30-lap feature before Larson found the lead by winning the drag race into turn one.

Kaeding drove around Larson exiting turn two on a restart on Lap 10 – the third straight attempt after Willie Croft and Jonathan Allard both flipped during previous tries – to capture the lead. The duo entered traffic on Lap 16 before a caution two laps later for a spin by Jason Statler.

Because of track conditions, all restarts were single file during the main event and Kaeding took advantage with the clear track. As he closed in on traffic, however, Larson closed in on the lead. They entered traffic on Lap 25 and on the ensuing lap, Larson was stuck on the bottom behind Statler.

That allowed Kaeding to put several car lengths of distance, which was quickly erased. Two laps later, Kaeding nearly made contact while trying to lap Sam Hafertepe Jr. entering the bottom of turn three. As Kaeding was forced to dramatically slow his car, Larson sailed around the top groove. His momentum allowed him to slip by Kaeding for the lead as they crossed the start-finish line.

Seconds later, Austen Wheatley spun exiting turn four to set up a green-white-checkered finish. While Kaeding tried to throw a pair of slide jobs on Larson for the lead in the final two laps, neither was successful.

“I think the biggest thing was lapped traffic,” Kaeding said. “That kind of cost us the race I think. You’ve got guys that want to just keep racing and not go a lap down, (but) I’ll take a second any night.”

Larson claimed the previous two Gold Cup Race of Champions – held near the end of summer each year at Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico, Calif., where the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series wraps up this weekend on Saturday with the Mini Gold Cup.

“It’s cool to get to race with Tim because he’s by far the best out here in California and he can contend for Outlaws wins no matter where he goes in the country,” he said. “It’s a lot of fun to get to race with Tim and it’s fun to beat him for a win because he’s beat me so many times for wins. It’s good to steal some back from him.”

Donny Schatz charged from 13th to third, earning his third top-five finish of the season.

“We had a good car,” he said. “The thing would go around the top and the bottom in (turns) three and four and the top in (turns) one and two. I just had to go where other guys weren’t. It was pretty treacherous up there; the cushion would hook you and grab you. We made a lot of spots up, but would have liked to been there racing for the win.”

Championship points leader Daryn Pittman was fourth and McMahan ended fifth.

Chad Kemenah placed sixth and 24th-starter Kerry Madsen earned the KSE Hard Charger Award for the fourth time this season after finishing seventh. Steve Kinser was eighth, Stewart ninth and Sammy Swindell rounded out the top 10.
