Kyle Larson returns for annual kart showcase at Cycleland Speedway

This is a cool event that seems to get covered outside of karting, come to think of it, I haven’t seen it covered in karting at all!

Larson, a two-time Gold Cup champion at Silver Dollar Speedway, can still find time for two days of kart racing at Cycleland Speedway south of Chico.

“It’s just a lot of fun. It’s cool to come back here and see so many cars and drivers and families,” Larson said. “This is where I grew up racing and I still love it to this day.”

Outlaw karts are…well they are karts, but only just. They’re ridiculous! Pulling wheelies down the whole straightaway. I wasn’t really aware of them until a few years ago, they’ve gathered a huge cult following in the NorthWest and the South as some NASCAR drivers put on showcases like these.

Yeah I’ve seen some running CR500’s. Absolute, beautiful madness.
