Larson Doesn't Let Tires Get Gobbled Up Drives
To Turkey Night GP Win At Perris

2012-11-12 TurkeyNGP-Perris.JPG (72168 bytes)

Albert Wong, a photographer taking pictures in victory lane, did something that will surely become a Turkey Night Tradition. Albert asked at the end of the photo shoot of the winners, "Can we put the "Aggie" on the winning car so the driver could "Kiss The Trophy." By then the guard that was in charge of keeping the trophy safe (which included keeping it out of the line of fire of the winner's Champagne Ceremony) had walked away with the trophy to protect it from the large gathering crowd. Albert went running down the hill after the guard and asked him to bring the trophy back. The guard consented, but the best that he would allow was to place the trophy on the stage instead of the car. Therefore, a new tradition was begun at Perris Auto Speedway on November 22, 2012, and Albert Wong will forever be tied to it. Starting with Kyle’s win in 2012, the winner of Turkey Night will "Kiss The Aggie" in celebration of his historic accomplishment.

2012-03-16Bristol-.JPG (327928 bytes)
March 17, 2012 - Larson qualifed 6th of 34 cars on hand.  In the early going of the race Larson proved to be one of the fastest cars on the track as he moved up to third behind Formula 1 vet Nelson Piquet, Jr., and Casey Elliott, son of NASCAR great Bill Elliott. Near the mid point of the 125 lap race Larson started falling back with what was thought to be a tight condition on his car.  
 
When the race was halted on lap 69 for a scheduled pit stop break, adjustments were made to loosen up the car.  However, after adjustments were completed and Larson was back out on the track, it was determined the removed right front tire was going down.  Larson restarted 10th, and while struggling with a loose setup, held on to finish ninth.

Dodge City, Kansas. April 22 and 23, 2011. Looking to start the quest for a run at the United States Auto Club Mopar Midget National Championship on a positive note, Elk Grove, California’s Kyle Larson appeared to be doing just that as he ran second to defending titlist Bryan Clauson in the season opener at Dodge City Raceway Park on Friday night. However, with just a handful of laps left a flat right rear tire ended any hopes for a top finish. Appearing to rebound in the second night of the Duel at Dodge City doubleheader, Larson drove from 14th starting to battle for fourth when contact with a lapped car sent the 18 year old into a spin and resulting lazy tipover.
