PETERSEN MEDIA- Aiden Larimer’s bid to open the season five for five in Red Bluff, CA came up just one spot short on Saturday night as the Merced, CA driver finished second in the Beginner Box Stock Division.
Timing the Cornaggia Farms/Stone Motorsports/Mark Sutton Construction No. 5 machine in seventh quickest in time trials, Larimer would see himself sitting outside of the Trophy Dash and looking in.
Picking up the heat race win in convincing fashion, Larimer would move to the feature event where he would find himself in early trouble aboard his Pro Vinyl Graphics/Van Lare Steering Repair/D&L Pump backed entry.
Getting into an opening lap tangle, Larimer would be forced to the back of the pack. From the tail end of the field, the young driver would put on a show as he was back up into fourth by the time the race completed the fourth lap.
Moving into a third a couple laps later, Larimer would hold down the final spot on the podium for a large majority of the race. A late restart bunched the field back up and Larimer was able to work into the second spot as the finish was setting up to be exciting as he would make a bid for his fifth consecutive win.
Getting to the leaders bumper, Larimer would look to be in position for a last lap pass, however a scoring mix up took place and the checkered flag would be displayed to the field one lap early. Though disappointed, Larimer would still have a great night that ended with a runner up finish.
Larimer would like to thank Cornaggia Farms, Stone Motorsports, Great Grandma and Grandpa Rocha, Mark Sutton Construction, Pro Vinyl Graphics, Van Lare Steering Repair, D&L Pump, Guthrie Racing, Uncle Ron, Larimer Family, Margie, Nana and Papa Motorsports, T&T Racing, Doug Lockwood, De Martini Bartending, Pugliese Family, Auntie Mary Motorsports, Nana and Papa, Orozco Gates, Grandma Estell, B’s Racing, Burris Tires, and Petersen Media for their support this season.
