For the second consecutive year, the highest paying one-night event in Outlaw Kart racing is returning to Cycleland Speedway in Chico, Calif., on Tuesday, September 6. Kyle Larson's Outlaw Kart Showcase, presented by ParkerStore, will offer a $25,000 purse in the Outlaw Kart Open Division with $6,000 going to the winner.
"I'm excited to have ParkerStore back as the race sponsor. They've been with me since I was 12 years old and I can't thank them enough for all their support," said Larson.
The Outlaw Kart Showcase will also include the Box Stock and 250 Outlaw Karts, with prelims for those divisions to be held on Monday, September 5, and their feature races being held on Tuesday night. Also on Monday night and new this year, Kyle will host and participate in an additional Open Division standalone race with $1,000 going to the winner.
"Bringing the race back to Cycleland Speedway for 2016 was a no-brainer for me," said Larson, who spent the majority of his childhood racing career at this track before he made the jump to NASCAR. "As a kid, we used to run the Tuesday night at Cycleland before the Gold Cup at Silver Dollar Speedway. It was always the race I looked forward to running every year and continuing to be a part in bringing it back feels great."
Drivers from all over the country are expected to attend the event. More than 220 entries were received last year and Larson expects 2015 winner, Colby Copeland, to be first in line to enter. Also expected back is last year's 250 division feature winner Tanner Holmes and Box Stock feature event winner Evan Burrola.
