Macedo Has Near Perfect Night At The Tom Tarlton Classic

Carson Macedo owned the Tom Tarlton Classic at Handford’s Kings Fairgrounds in Lemoore, California. Driving the Tom Tarlton Sr. owned #21 Tarlton and Son Inc. / BG Chemicals entry, the WoO Sprint Car driver had something to prove.

Macedo opened up by setting the fast time in the USAC Western States Midget portion of the evening’s program. He went on to win his heat race in the midgets, the dash and led all 25 laps of the feature to round out the Western States Midget event.

Robby Josett went from eleventh to fifth in the feature to earn the “Hard Charger” award.

As for the 410 Sprint Car portion of the program, with a field of 15 cars, Macedo set the quick time in the Woodland Auto Display Qualifying. He went on to win his heat race and as he did earlier in the evening, Macedo took the dash win.

The only bobble preventing perfection in the night for the talented driver was finishing third in his heat in the Sprint Cars. However, finishing behind Brad Sweet and Daryn Pittman can hardly be considered a bobble. 

Macedo finished the evening by winning the Feature race over two of the favorites; Kyle Larson and Brad Sweet. Most would consider this a career night, but Macedo is likely eyeing a return for a full sweep next year.
