BAKERSFIELD, CALIFORNIA (February 27, 2018) – Brad Pounds will try to add another championship to his dirt resume, when the Bakersfield Karting Experience hosts the Open Outlaw Karts for their 2017-18 Winter Series finale on Friday night. Pounds scored the opening night of the Bakersfield Indoor Kart Nationals in January then added a third place finish last Friday as part of his efforts to lead the points.
The Bakersfield Karting Experience 1/10th mile indoor dirt oval has thrilled fans with a great winter season of racing for Mini Dwarfs, Outlaw Karts, and flat karts. The Outlaw Kart series has averaged 20 entries per event in its inaugural season. Friday’s conclusion is expected to attract another strong field of competitors, with last Friday’s victor Tate Sanders the only repeat winner in the series. Sanders’ two wins leads Pounds, Ethan Dotson, and Tim Randolph as other winners this season.
The 25-lap feature for the Open Outlaws will pay $400 to win out of a $1000 purse.
General admission tickets will be $10 on Friday night. Pit gates open at 2 p.m. with drivers meeting at 6:30 p.m. and racing at 7 p.m. Pit passes are $20.
