Tuesday Night’s Main Event:

Kyle Larson and Brady Bacon battle for the race lead.

Pole sitter Kyle Larson jumped to the early lead in the Warren Cat Qualifying main event at the Tulsa Expo Center. Behind him Broken Arrow, Oklahoma’s Brady Bacon began his move forward passing Casey Shuman for second place on the third lap. The following lap Bacon made the pass for the lead rolling the high side of three and four, securing the spot down the front stretch.

Race leaders moved into heavy traffic mid-race allowing Tony Stewart to get around Shuman for the third and final transfer spot to Saturday’s feature event. Larson closed in on Bacon and made a move for the lead until a caution came out with seven laps to go. On the restart Larson took the lead in the first turn and went on to win the qualifying night.

Bacon held off Stewart for a second place finish with Shuman and Chris Windom completing the top five.
