FONTANA, Calif. — What does Nationwide Series rookie phenom Kyle Larson do when he’s not competing in a NASCAR race?
That’s easy. He races something else.
After track activity concluded Friday at Auto Club Speedway, Larson and his mentor, Tony Stewart, flew north to Stockton, Calif., (75 miles east of San Francisco) for the inaugural World of Outlaws winged sprint car event at the Stockton 99 dirt track.
According to track co-owner and promoter Ken Clapp, the event drew the largest crowd in the history of Stockton racing — a paid attendance of 10, 614.
After qualifying third, Larson won the “A” Main feature, earning $10,000 and the trophy. Stewart was fourth in time trials and finished ninth.
