Although driving a midget or sprint car is nothing new to Larson, he primarily drives the cars on dirt tracks across the country. His last cobblestone USAC midget start was in 2013 when he finished second in the Rich Vogler Classic at IRP. It will make its series debut with the new 500 Sprint Car Tour which kicked off its inaugural season in June.
Larson has eight career starts at Lucas Oil Indianapolis Raceway Park, including a USAC Pavement Midget victory in 2011.
Monday night’s action will begin with qualifying for the 500 Sprint Car Tour starting at 6:15 p.m. ET, followed by qualifying for the USAC Pavement Midgets. Opening ceremonies at 7 p.m. ET will lead into the 30-lap 500 Sprint Car Tour feature, followed by the 30-lap USAC sidewalk midget feature.
Area fans can attend the event for free with general admission tickets courtesy of Bald Spot Sports. Those unable to attend in person will be able to watch both features live on FloRacing. If you are not already a FloRacing subscriber, Click here join today.
