PETERSEN MEDIA- Carson Macedo would end his Spring Swing with the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series by finishing ninth at Perris Auto Speedway on Saturday night.
“Paul Baines did an awesome job with the car on Saturday night,” Carson Macedo said. “We had a tough swing at times, but it is nice to end it with a good finish at a place we only get to once a year.”
Saturday night in Perris, CA, Macedo would get the night underway by timing his Tachi Palace Hotel and Casino/Executive Auto Sales/Elite Landscape Construction machine in 18th fastest during qualifying time trials.
Lining up in the third row of his heat race, the Lemoore, CA wheelman would score a fifth place finish, which would place him in the eighth row for the 30-lap feature event.
From his 15th starting spot, the former King of the West Champion would get to work on the ½ mile speedway as he worked toward the Top-10. The Paul Baines prepared entry was to Macedo’s liking, as he would work up into the ninth spot just before the track started taking rubber.
Battling with Paul McMahan, and Jason Sides late in the race, Macedo opted to stay hooked to the rubber, and end his night with his first Top-10 of the season.
The Tarlton Motorsports team was also in action on Friday night at Macedo’s home track, Keller Auto Speedway located in Hanford, CA.
Timing in 22nd quickest in qualifying time trials, Macedo would advance from sixth to finish fourth in his heat race and punch his ticket into the 35-lap A main event.
From his 14th starting spot, Macedo admittedly felt like it was the bad luck spot as issues seemed to happen directly in front of him.
Early in the feature event, a car would spin in front of him forcing him to take evasive action off of the racing surface. With the car able to keep going and not causing a yellow, Macedo would fall to the tail end of the field.
Working his way back forward as best as he could, a car would get out of shape in front of him on a restart and cause issues to his front end. Able to weather the storm, Macedo would still manage to get back to a 14th place finish.
“I have to thank Paul Baines and the guys for all of their hard work this past month, and my Uncle Tom Tarlton for this opportunity to run at home again,” Carson Macedo added. “With the Outlaw swing over, I am looking forward to running some KWS events.”
Tarlton Racing would like to thank Elite Landscape Construction, Tarlton and Son, Inc., Executive Auto Sales, Tachi Palace Hotel and Casino, Pabco Gypsum, Bandy and Associates, All Star Performance, and BG Lubricants for their support through the 2017 season.
BY THE NUMBERS: Races: 8, Wins: 0, Top 5’s: 0, Top 10’s: 1.
ON TAP: Macedo and the Tarlton Motorsports team will head to Kern County Raceway Park on Saturday nigh to take part in the season opening King of the West event.
