BAKERSFIELD, CALIFORNIA (February 13, 2018) – The fast-growing Open Outlaw Karts at Bakersfield Karting Experience continues this Friday night, with racing on the indoor 1/10th mile dirt oval. The 25-lap feature will pay $400 to win out of a $1000 purse for a series that has averaged 20 entries in its inaugural season.
Bakersfield Pro Stock champion Tim Randolph won the series debut in December before IMCA Modified standout Ethan Dotson claimed round two. The Bakersfield Indoor Kart Nationals in January say the preliminary $400 to win to Bakersfield Speedway Modified champion Brad Pounds. Bakersfield Kart Raceway veteran Tate Sanders won the $1000 finale of the nationals. Pounds currently enjoys a 22 point advantage in the standings.
With all four races swept by Bakersfield drivers and no repeat winners so far, the competition level will be intense heading into round five. Drivers such Larry Moody and Bryan Watson – 2ndand 3rd in points respectively – will be looking to get their shot on top of the podium on Friday.
