INDIANAPOLIS – Carson Macedo has reunited with Tarlton Motorsports and will drive the No. 21x winged sprint car in select events on the West Coast this year.
Macedo will begin the year in competition with the King of the West Sprint Car Series, and will also race with the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series during the World of Outlaws West Coast tour in March.
“I’m glad I get the opportunity to continue to race in the Tarlton No. 21x,” Macedo said. “I’ve been with them for five years and it’s really fun getting to race closer to home with family. I’m so grateful Tom and Tommy have given me this opportunity again, along with so many other breaks in my racing career.“It should be an eventful year racing with the two teams and I’m looking forward to hopefully getting both of them some wins.”
With the addition of the Tarlton ride, Macedo will add approximately 25 events to his growing race schedule. He is slated to enter more than 40 races throughout the Midwest with Joe Gaerte Racing this year.
This is Carson’s fifth year piloting the Tarlton Motorsports machine. He won the 2015 King of the West Sprint Car Series championship driving for the team.
“We all like working with Carson. He’s a great kid,” said team owner Tommy Tarlton. “He shows improvement every time he gets in the car. Tom and I are fortunate to be able to help him with these opportunities. It should be a fun year. We know Carson will give one hundred percent.”
Macedo will kick off his 2017 season with the King of the West Sprint Car Series opener at Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico, California on March 4.
