The Eagles Have Landed; West Coast Nationals Draw Red Bluff Outlaws Season to a Close

By: Elijah Jones

 

                (March 23rd, 2018)……….In Outlaw Kart Racing there are a few prestigious races across the country, many of those races though focus solely on one or two classes. That is what sets the West Coast Nationals aside from every other race. The West Coast Nationals features all five classes that run on a weekly basis. The Beginner Box Stocks, Box Stocks, 250 Intermediates, Opens, and Sportsman Classes all compete in a full three day show that is unlike any other Outlaw Kart Race in the country. At the end of Sunday’s Main Events the Champions are each awarded their trophy; an Eagle. When you think of an Eagle you think power, strength, and courage. It takes all of those to become a West Coast Nationals Champion and five drivers did just that last weekend.

                The Beginner Box Stock Class saw a familiar face pick up the victory. Merced, CA youngster Aiden Larimer piloted his Cornaggia Farms #5 kart to his 10th win of the season with the Red Bluff Outlaws. Larimer was spectacular all season long and put himself into the record books. He now holds the second most wins in the Beginner Box Stock Class of any driver in the history of the Red Bluff Outlaws, behind only Cyle Allison who had 12 wins before moving into the next class. Larimer will make the move into the Box Stock Class next season where he will hope to continue his winning ways.

                In the Box Stock Class we saw somewhat of a surprise winner. Not only because of who won the race, but how he won the race. On Lap 8 of the Main Event the red flag came out as two cars got upside down in Turn 4. One of those cars was the Whitchurch & Sons #14 of Rowdy Gramps. Gramps would get turned back over and rejoin at the tail of the field. From there he would mount a charge to the front of the field that will not soon be forgotten. The young driver from Oroville, CA would get to the lead late in the Main Event and drive away to the West Coast Nationals Championship, his second win of the season in the Box Stock Class.

                Another surprise victor came in the 250 Intermediate Class. Anissa Curtice came into this weekend having never won a race at the Red Bluff Outlaws. In an eventful Main Event that saw many different leaders, Curtice would hang around in the top five until it was her turn to take over the top spot. Once out front, the Eureka, CA driver would power away to the West Coast Nationals Title. While it was announced during the event that she was the first female to win a West Coast Nationals Title, research proved that to be incorrect. She is actually just the second female to get it done as Lexi Raudman is actually a two-time West Coast Nationals Champion (Beg. Box & Box). Anissa Curtice has shown much improvement on the race track over the last two years, and her driving will only continue to improve. Look for this to be a breakthrough weekend for her as it will kick down the door to many more victories for this young lady.

                The Open Class was extremely competitive all weekend long. We saw many different drivers show a lot of speed. Once the Green Flag flew on the 30 Lap Main Event though, it was all one driver out front. Tyler Seavey started outside the front row for the Main Event. He jumped out front on the opening lap and never relinquished the top spot. In such a way as we have seen already this season Tyler Seavey looked unstoppable at the front of the field. Restarts were where he excelled the most. He would launch off the restart and take off to a big lead. That meant that even if someone strung together some laps and attempted to close in, they had a lot of work to do to get to his bumper let alone pass him. Jake Park tried early in the race, then Brandon LaChance, then even younger brother Logan Seavey. None were able to make anything happen as Tyler wheeled his Amber Norman Racing #91 kart to the victory leading all 30 Laps in the process. It was a very impressive run for a driver who had a very impressive season. A Red Bluff Outlaws Championship and West Coast Nationals Championship in one winter is no simple task, but Mr. Seavey made it look a lot easier than it was.

                The Sportsman Class was once again the Tyler Ritcheson vs. Kris Renaud show as it was all season long. I have personally never witnessed a Championship battle as good as the one these two put on. That resulted in Tyler Ritcheson winning the Track Championship by way of holding off a last lap charge in the last points race of the season. Fast forward to the West Coast Nationals Main Event. Same story as the week before. Tyler Ritcheson leads with Kris Renaud second, less than five laps to go and an eagle on the line. This time when Renaud reels in Ritcheson he is able to complete the pass in a tattered and torn race car with two laps remaining. Kris Renaud finally became a West Coast Nationals Champion as he piloted the Gary Perkins Racing Development #35 to the victory. The kart looked like it had been through World War Three, but the smile on Kris Renaud’s face in Victory Lane told the tale of someone who just flat out enjoys racing and that is why we show up each and every week.

                With the 2017/18 race season in the books at the Red Bluff Outlaws, the doors to the Pauline Davis Pavilion close for Outlaw Karts until October. The drivers and teams will go race elsewhere during the Spring and Summer months. The officials will go work at other racetracks, and the fans will watch other races. Come October though, we will all find ourselves together again as we begin yet another Red Bluff Outlaws Season. Until then, be safe, and be good people. We will see you next year at the Red Bluff Outlaws.

2017 /2018 RBO POINTS RACE 13

BEGINNER BOX STOCK POINTS RACE #13

BY: ELIJAH JONES

Heading into the final Points Race of the season, Aiden Larimer pretty much had the Beginner Box Stock Championship Wrapped up. Once heat races were completed, he had officially clinched the Championship title. It was a dream season for the young driver as he had won a total of 8 Main Events prior to the final race of the season. After Saturday night’s event, that total increased to 9 wins in 13 starts, with a worst finish of third in the Main Event.

                The Spiderman themed #3T of Tyler Carlson led much of the Main Event before Larimer was able to take over the top spot. With Larimer driving away to the win, Carlson scored his best finish of the season as he came across the line in the second position. The second place finish marked the youngster’s first top five finish of the season. Koen Irvin piloted his #4K kart to a third place effort. Irvin finishes the Points season with five top five finishes. Jaxon Coughlin was the closest driver to Larimer in the points standings heading into the night. He would finish fourth in the Main Event for his seventh top five finish of the year. The top five would be concluded with the #2 of Austin Anderson finishing in the fifth position. Anderson enjoyed a solid season as this marked his 6th top five of the season.

                Austin Anderson also enjoyed his first Fast Time of the season as he set the fastest lap in Time Trials to begin the night. Anderson turned a lap of 11.275 seconds to pace the field of 25 entries in his Party Dreams #2 kart.

                Heat Race competition saw the #04 of Braiden McKenzie pick up the victory in Heat Race #1 for his second heat win of the year. Heat Race #2 was claimed by the #84 of Jaxon Coughlin, bringing his total to five heat wins on the season. Heat Race #3 saw the #42C of Chayce Smith score his second heat win of the year. Smith debuted a new kart this week and we were disappointed to see that “The Hulk” was no longer on the kart. We have been assured though that “The Hulk” will make his return to the kart for the West Coast Nationals. The fourth and final heat race was claimed by the #57 of Jacob Nuxoll, his fifth win of the season in heat race competition.

                Worth noting, the win last Saturday night for Aiden Larimer put him alone in second on the All-Time Beginner Box Stock Win list with nine total victories. He will have the opportunity to make that ten wins this weekend at the West Coast Nationals. It was also rumored that he may run two classes during the Nationals as he looks to jump into the Box Stock Class as well as the Beginner Box Class.  

BOX STOCK POINTS RACE #13

 Yuba City, CA driver Seth Standley piloted his Evan’s Furniture Galleries #25 kart to the 2017/18 Red Bluff Outlaws Box Stock Championship. Standley came into the night just needing a solid qualifying effort to lock up the Championship and that is just what he did. Once qualifying was completed, Standley had locked up the Championship and was able to chase after the race win as well.

                Standley would go on to win the Main Event for his sixth win of the season. This stat is really impressive, considering he did not win his first Main Event of the year until Points Race #6. He won six of the last eight races of the season with Rylinn Renaud the only other driver to score a victory in the second half of the season as he won during Races #10 and #12. Second place last Saturday night went to the defending Box Stock Champion, Chance Grasty in his #1 kart. He only ran a few Box Stock races this season but made the most of it a he scored a top five in all three of his starts this season. Rylinn Renaud had an up and down season that concluded with a third place effort on Saturday night for his 11th top five of the season. Renaud scored more top fives than any other driver in the Box Stock Class this season. Connor Grasty piloted his Factory QRC #21 kart to a fourth place effort in last week’s Main Event. It was his sixth top five in a season that saw him also win one Main Event back during Points Race #5. The top five would be rounded out by the Ed Brown Trucking #49 of Tater Reich. Tater had a great season in the Box Stock Class, scoring a Main Event Victory during Points Race #2 along with five top five finishes.

In Time Trials it was the Grasty Brothers pacing the field of 16 entries. Chance Grasty set Fast Time with a lap time of 10.016 seconds. His younger brother Connor would time in second quickest. These two up and comers have had great starts to their careers and will look to carry that speed into the next year.

Heat Race competition saw the #10 kart of Jennifer Osborne score the win in Heat Race #1. The win was her third of the season in heat race competition. Heat Race #2 was claimed by the #7DJ of Dryver Dothage. This was the first time we saw Dothage with the Red Bluff Outlaws this season and he made a statement in the Heat Race, he would go on to finish 10th in the Main Event. The third and final Heat Race was claimed by the Phantom Racing Chassis #16 kart of Rylinn Renaud. The win was his fifth of the season in heat race competition. The six kart, six lap, Trophy Dash saw Seth Standley pull into Victory Lane for the fifth time this season. During his winner’s interview, when asked what he had to do to win the Main Event his response was “Spank Em”, and he did just that.

As I’m sure many of you noticed, the kart count in the Box Stock Class was a little light this year. No worries though as the Beginner Box Class was HUGE this season. Many of those drivers will be moving into the Box Stock Class next year, which will increase the kart count and level of competition even more. It’s all a part of the game, especially in the lower classes where drivers change classes once every couple of years until they reach the Open Class. We expect to see a solid kart count this weekend during the West Coast Nationals, as everyone wants to try their hand at taking home an Eagle.  

250 INTERMEDIATE POINTS RACE #13

 The 250 Intermediate Class had arguably the best Championship Points battle all season long. Heading into the season finale there were five drivers still with a mathematical shot at the Championship. Three of those drivers were separated by just 21 points. That would not be the case for long though. After Qualifying and Heat Races, Carsen Perkins had extended his lead by enough that all he needed to do was roll onto the racetrack for the Main Event to clinch the title. He would do just that, finishing 7th in the Main Event to secure his first 250 Intermediate Championship at the Red Bluff Outlaws and his fourth overall Championship at the track (1-Beg. Box, 2-Box).

                The Main Event would see Daniel Whitley jump out front at the drop of the Green Flag in his #57 kart in search of his sixth win of the season. The race would be slowed multiple times due to accident but Daniel Whitley was untouchable at the front of the field. Every restart he would just drive away from the field. The race would be for second, as Whitley dominated for his sixth Main Event triumph of the year. After starting outside the front row, Mason Smith had his best finish since winning the season opener as he came across the line in second for his third top five finish of the season. Max Mittry would finish in the third position in his #2X kart for just his second top five finish of the year. Anissa Curtice would cross the stripe in the fourth position in her #8C kart. While Tanner Pettit rounded out the top five with a fifth place finish in his #24P kart. His seventh top five of the season.

                Carsen Perkins helped solidify his Championship season by way of setting Fast Time in Time Trials with a lap time of 8.497 seconds. That lap was nearly three tenths of a second quicker than the second fastest driver. Perkins knew he had to have a solid qualifying effort to try and maintain his points lead, and he blew that out of the water.

                Heat race competition saw the #2X of Max Mittry score what was surprisingly his first heat race win of the season during Heat Race #1. Kaiden Butler piloted his #22K kart to the victory during Heat Race #2 for his sixth heat race triumph of the season. Anissa Curtice scored the win during Heat Race #3, her second of the season. The fourth and final heat race saw Carly Holmes pick up the victory, also her second of the season.

For this weekend’s West Coast Nationals it is hard to pick a favorite for the win. If I were to place a bet, it would be on the #57 of Daniel Whitley. He has been so strong this season with his six wins. You can’t count out “The Champ” Carsen Perkins though, as his consistency might be just what he needs to pick up the WCN victory. Last year’s West Coast Nationals Champion Tanner Pettit is also in the field again this year. He will look to defend his title against a full field of challengers. This class will feature a lot of drama and excitement this weekend. That is guaranteed.

OPEN POINTS RACE #13

 The 2017/18 Red Bluff Outlaws Open Championship battle was one for the ages. It came down to a late season duel between the Amber Norman Racing #91 of Tyler Seavey and the SALCO Better Energy #1C of Chase Hill. Both drivers have spent the majority of their lives racing around the little bullring inside the Pauline Davis Pavilion and it all came down to the final race of the season to determine a Champion. Heading into the Main Event all Tyler Seavey had to do was finish 14th or better to clinch the Championship. For Chase Hill that meant he had to win the race and hope that Seavey had some sort of mishap.  

                The Main Event would go green with the Ed Brown Trucking #35 of Casey Schmitz on the Pole, alongside Championship Points Leader Tyler Seavey in the #91. At the drop of the Green Flag it would be Seavey jumping out front early on. He would lead the opening set of laps before the yellow flag would slow the field as Amanda Moore and Ren Eberhart got together in turn one. On the restart Schmitz would show his strength as they completed one lap and then Schmitz threw the slider into turn one. He would take the lead over just as the yellow lights came on once again, this time for first time main event starter Dawson Hammes in the #55D who stopped on the back stretch. On the restart Chase Hill would come to life as he quickly took second from Tyler Seavey and then the war began between himself and Casey Schmitz. Hill would throw a hail mary slider into turn three. Schmitz though would drive back under him out of the corner and motor back into the lead. Hill would fall back into line and wait for another opportunity to pounce. The yellow flag would bunch the field up on Lap 11 as Landon Brooks got turned around and collected Amanda Moore. The race would go back green with 14 laps remaining, only to go yellow quickly for the #25S of Morgan Sandhagen who slowed on the front stretch. Casey Schmitz would get a great restart as he jumped back out front. Hill though knew he needed to get one more spot to have any shot at the Championship. He would pull the trigger with less than ten to go. Schmitz left the bottom open in turn three and Hill would dive to the inside from 5 kart lengths back to attempt the slider. He would slide up in front of Schmitz, who immediately turned back under him to drag race down the straightaway. The next lap in turn two Schmitz would lean back hard on the #1C of Hill sending him up into the cushion just as the yellow lights came on again. That would stack the field up once again with now just seven laps remaining. The battle would continue up front as Hill just would not go away. He leaned into Schmitz in turn two with 6 to go moved him up the racetrack to take the lead once and for all. In the final five laps Chase Hill drove away from the field to pick up his third win of the season. It would not be enough though to pick up the Championship, as Tyler Seavey crossed the line in the fourth position to claim his first career Open Track Championship with the Red Bluff Outlaws. It came down to ten points between the top two in points, a great Championship battle between two great drivers.

                The drama will continue this weekend as we see the West Coast Nationals unfold. Two-time and defending West Coast Nationals Champion Jesse Colwell is serving a suspension and will not be competing this weekend so we will see a different winner in the Open Class. Stay tuned to find out who that will be.

SPORTSMAN POINTS RACE #13

 The Sportsman Championship battle we saw this season was hands down the best championship battle I have ever witnessed. All season long Kris Renaud and Tyler Ritcheson duked it out for the top spot. They were never separated by more than ten points in the standings and heading into the finale Ritcheson held a one point advantage over Renaud. One single point with one race remaining in the season.

                By the time the Main Event rolled around, Ritcheson had added one point to that total and carried a 2-point lead into the main. For Kris Renaud that meant he had to finish ahead of Ritcheson by two positions unless they were both in the top three. If they both finished in the top three it only mattered who finished ahead of the other. Well that is just how this one would play out. With five to go Shawn Fogarty would crash out of the lead which would put Kris Renaud into the lead with Tyler Ritcheson behind him in second. Winner takes home the Championship. The green flag would go back in the air for the final time with five to go. Renaud got a good restart and blocked the slider into turn one. That slowed his back straightaway momentum though as Ritcheson threw a slider into turn three to take over the lead. Renaud would drive back under him and move him up the track in turn one to regain the top spot. Neither driver was giving the other an inch as there wasn’t an inch to give in the closing laps. Ritcheson would keep his foot in it on the top, he drove to the bottom in turn one with two to go and retook the race lead. The white flag would go in the air with the Championship on the line! Ritcheson lead it through turns one and two. Renaud went to the top to get a run down the back straight. They both dove for the bottom in turn three! Contact ensues and Renaud spins allowing Tyler Ritcheson to drive it home for the Main Event win and Championship!!!

As a race fan you can only dream of watching a race like that with so much on the line. Two drivers, battling for not only the race win but for a Championship. It coming down to the final corner on the final lap. The Sportsman Class sometimes gets a bad rap, but this season they put on the best shows each and every week. The talent level in this class was top notch this season.

With the finish to the Points Season for the Sportsman Class, we can only hope for more of the same during the West Coast Nationals this weekend. So many heavy hitters are expected to be in the field and I cannot wait to see what they bring to the table.

2017 /2018 RBO POINTS RACE 12

BEGINNER BOX STOCK POINTS RACE #12

BY: ELIJAH JONES

 The Beginner Box Stock Class continues to improve as a whole as we move into the final race of the 2017-18 race season. We saw yet another first time winner this past Saturday night as Chevy Schroer finally broke through for his first career win. Schroer has been so fast all season long, and was able to put it all together for the first time as he pulled his Panthera Motorsports #29 kart into Victory Lane.

                When the Green Flag dropped on the 20 Lap Beginner Box Stock A-Main Event it was the #04 of Braiden McKenzie who would jump out front early on. The yellow flag would quickly wave though as there was a pileup in turn two. Racing back to the yellow flag McKenzie spun around in turn four thus losing the race lead and handing it over to the #84 of Jaxon Coughlin. Coughlin would continue to show the way after the restart but he had the #5 of Aiden Larimer and the #57 of Jacob Nuxoll hot on his tracks in 2nd and 3rd. Eventually Coughlin would make a mistake in turn four and spin the kart to a stop, handing the race lead over to Larimer. A couple more yellows would halt the race and bring forth a great battle up front as Chevy Schroer had methodically been working his way to the front in his #29 kart. Schroer would restart second behind Larimer with not many laps remaining. On the restart Schroer would make his move. He got a great restart and pressured Larimer all the way down the back stretch. Entering turn three he dove to the bottom and slid up into the side of Larimer and gave him a nudge up the racetrack. That was all the #29 kart needed as he got up front and drove away from the field to score the victory; the first in his young career. Points Leader Aiden Larimer would come across the line in second, he is still yet to finish out of the top five this season. Corbin Seay had another good run in his #7C kart. Corbin has now finished in the top five on three occasions this season. Jack Kegg made his first appearance of the year a good one in his #7J kart. Kegg had a great night all around, capped off by a fourth place effort in the main event. The top five was rounded out by Points Race #11 winner Jacob Nuxoll in his #57 kart.

                As we head into the season finale the Championship is just about wrapped up for the #5 of Aiden Larimer. He heads into the final race of the season holding a 56-point advantage over new second place driver Chevy Schroer. To keep it simple, all Larimer has to do is have a 55-point or more advantage after qualifying to lock up the Championship. With a solid performance last Saturday night, Schroer put himself solidly into second in the standings. Third and Fourth in points are up for grabs right now though. Jaxon Coughlin is currently third in the standings, but Austin Anderson is a mere 7-points behind him for that position. Koen Irvin currently rounds out the top five in the standings.

                Despite where these young drivers finish in the Points or on the racetrack, it is important to note the improvement made by all in this class. Early in the year we had one driver that absolutely dominated the class, had some that showed flashes of speed but lack of experience, and some that were just logging laps. By the end of the season the whole field was competitive. Some drivers that were multiple laps down early in the year are now competing inside the top five. That’s what makes this class so great, is the visible improvement you can see out of these drivers. I look forward to seeing them continue to improve and grow into the next generation of Outlaw Kart drivers.

BOX STOCK POINTS RACE #12

 Over the past few races, the kart count in the Box Stock Class has gotten smaller. We have seen some drivers move up into the 250 Class and had others come and go. The one thing that has been consistent though has been the great competition at the front of the field. This week we saw Rylinn Renaud score his second win of the season but it did not come easy for him.

                When the Green Flag flew on the Main Event, Rylinn Renaud would make quick work of getting to the front of the field after starting in the fourth position. He would lead the opening lap before disaster would strike. Second place running Blake Martin got into the first turn too hot and climbed up on top of the back of Renaud’s kart causing both of them to come to a stop and draw the yellow flag. They would have to rejoin at the rear of the field. Renaud would quickly go to work trying to pass as many karts as possible and in no time was back up front contending for the race lead. He would eventually build up a big enough run on race leader Seth Standley to take over the top spot. He would go on to pick up his second win by just .383 seconds over second place finish Seth Standley. Chance Grasty subbed for the #17M of Evan Gularte on Saturday night and brought his kart home with a third place effort. Garin McNary let it all hang out throughout the 25 Lap Main Event and came away with a fourth place effort in his #22 kart. Luke Hayes would come across the line in the fifth position in his Hayes Farms #9L kart.

With just one race remaining, Seth Standley has virtually clinched the Championship. He currently holds a 66 marker advantage over second place driver Luke Hayes. If Standley can make it through Time Trials with at least a 55 point advantage he will clinch the Championship. He already picked up the Lakeport Winter Indoor Series Championship this season and is looking to add a Red Bluff Outlaws Championship to his resume as well. Connor Grasty sits solidly in the third position as he is 92-points behind Standley for the top spot. Rylinn Renaud and Tater Reich round out the current top five in the standings.

The Box Stock Class is probably the most continuously changing class we have in Outlaw Karts. We constantly have drivers moving up from the Beginner Box Class, and drivers moving out to the 250 Intermediate Class. That is part of what makes this class so competitive. You always have new faces and up and coming drivers trying to throw their names in the hat. This season has been great to watch even with the lower kart count, and we should see the kart count improve next season as we had more than 20 karts every race this season in the Beginner Box Class. Many of those drivers will be transitioning to the Box Stock Class next season and we will have a whole new batch of competitors to follow.  

250 INTERMEDIATE POINTS RACE #12

The 250 Intermediate Championship Chase is Wide Open as we head into the final race of the season. Heading into the season finale there are five drivers still in contention for the Championship. Carsen Perkins extended his points lead a little bit last Saturday night, while Daniel Whitley scored his class leading fifth Main Event win of the season in his #57 kart.

                The Main Event began with Trace Adams alongside Daniel Whitley on the front row. Adams would get a good start and looked like he might have the advantage but Whitley got it wound up on the top side of the racetrack to lead lap number one. He would actually go on to lead all 25 Laps of the Main Event while the rest of the field did all of the moving and shaking. The win marks five on the season for Whitley. Trace Adams had his best run of the season as he hung onto second for nearly the entire race before getting passed by the #22K of Kaiden Butler late in the running. Butler would cross the line in second for his fifth top five of the season. Trace Adams would finish third, his third top five of the year. Tyler Matheny scored another top five finish as well, as the Nevada City, CA driver crossed the line in the fourth position. The #24P of Tanner Pettit would round out the top five with his sixth top five effort of the season in fifth.

                As you can see, none of the top three in points finished in the top five, which opened the door for Daniel Whitley and Tanner Pettit to both have at least an outside shot at the Championship in the final race of the season. Carsen Perkins came into the night as the points leader, he would run as high as third in the Main Event before eventually fading to finish in the sixth position. Carson Sousa has struggled in the Main Events the last three races now. This week he just didn’t quite have the speed he needed to compete up front. He would cross the finish line in the 9th position. Preston Carr had a really fast kart early in the race but spun out while running third. That caused him to go to the rear of the field. He was unable to rebound as he crossed the line in the 11th position.

                A really cool moment that flew under the radar last weekend was between two of the Championship contenders. After heat races, Carson Sousa’s team realized they had blown an engine and did not have another to put on the kart. In stepped Chris Carr, father of championship contender Preston Carr. He not only loaned Sousa an engine but helped them to get it on the kart and fired off. Even in the moments leading up to the Main Event with Preston’s #46 in staging already, the #01 of Sousa could not get the kart to fire. Chris Carr worked with the #01 team to get the kart fired off and ready to roll onto the racetrack. This is a great example of the camaraderie that we have in the racing world. These two drivers are competing for a Championship against each other but they want to win or lose it on the track and not by mechanical failure. This is something we could use a whole lot more of in racing. Kudos to those involved in that great display of sportsmanship.

Heading into the season finale Carsen Perkins leads the way in his Gary Perkins Racing #35 kart. Perkins holds a 20-point advantage over second place driver Carson Sousa. Preston Carr is right there as well. He sits one point behind Sousa for second, and 21 back of Perkins for the top spot. Those three drivers have the best chance at coming away the Champion this year. There are two other drivers though that mathematically have a shot at it. Tanner Pettit is fourth in points and sits 50 markers back of Perkins for the lead. Daniel Whitley’s five Main Event wins have not been enough to propel him to the top of the standings. He heads into the finale fifth in points just 55 points out of the top spot. Those are the five Championship contenders as we head into Championship night. Pick out a favorite and cheer them on as they compete to become a Red Bluff Outlaws Champion.

OPEN POINTS RACE #12

One of the big topics of conversation in the Open Class this year has been an up and coming driver from Jacksonville, Oregon. This driver is no stranger to the Red Bluff Outlaws. He is already a Two-Time Champion (Box Stock & Intermediate) and owned 32 career wins at the Red Bluff Outlaws at just 15 years of age heading into last Saturday night’s Points Race #12. Tanner Holmes is that driver, and he improved his overall win total to 33 career Red Bluff Outlaws Victories by way of scoring his first career Open Main Event Win. Holmes has been behind the wheel of one of the Factory QRC house karts the last three races now and has made the most of it as his name is now forever etched into the record books.

                The night began with Time Trials for the 25 kart field. Casey McClain has begun to once again show the speed he had at the beginning of the season. He piloted the Factory QRC #51 kart to Fast Time this week with a lap time of 8.392 seconds. This was his third Fast Time of the season but his first since Points Race #2. He set Fast Time in each of the first two races before going on a dry spell through the middle of the season.

Heat Race competition had a little different look this week. Instead of the traditional five heat format we had four heat races taking the top three finishers to the Main Event. With only 25 karts signed in, it didn’t make sense to run with five heat races. Heat Race #1 was claimed by Chico, CA driver Casey Schmitz in his Ed Brown Trucking #35 entry. The victory was his fifth of the season in heat race competition. Heat Race #2 saw Jacksonville, OR driver Tanner Holmes wheel his way to his third Heat Race win of the season in the Factory QRC #18T kart. Heat Race #3 was claimed by the Truck Shop Motors #9B of Brandon LaChance. The win was Lachance’s fourth of the season in heat race competition. The fourth and final heat race saw Corning, CA driver Brian McGahan Jr. pick up the win in his #8JR kart. The win marked his fourth of the season in heat race competition.

With Qualifying and Heat Races completed, the stage was set for the Main Events. The 20-Lap B-Main Event was up first. This race would feature thirteen drivers vying for the final four positions in the upcoming A-Main Event. Despite setting Fast Time earlier in the evening, Casey McClain (51) found himself in the B-Main. He would score the victory, transferring himself into the Main Event along with Amanda Moore (63A), Nate Lynch (56), and Tyler Seavey (91).

The Trophy Dash featuring the top six qualifiers from earlier in the night, saw the SALCO Better Energy #1C of Chase Hill score the win. The win marked Hill’s third Trophy Dash triumph of the season. It also helped him to gain a couple of points in the Championship Chase.

When the Green Flag went in the air for the 25 Lap Main Event it was Tanner Holmes on the Pole with Casey Schmitz to his outside. Entering turn one, Holmes threw a slider on Schmitz and battled for the lead down the backstretch. Schmitz would return the favor in turn four as he slid up in front of Holmes to lead the opening lap of the race. Casey would protect the bottom in turn one which allowed the #18T of Holmes to get a run on the top side. He would edge ahead into turn three and cut to the bottom of the racetrack to slow the momentum of the #35 of Schmitz. Holmes would then show the way with ease until the race was slowed on Lap 9. On the ensuing restart, Holmes would choose the outside lane, giving the bottom to the #35 of Schmitz. A pileup would occur in turn one and the race to the yellow flag was on. Schmitz threw a slider into turn three but did not completely clear the #18T of Holmes. They got together just a bit in turn four but Schmitz would come away as the new race leader with 15 to go. The next restart, Holmes got an excellent restart on the bottom of the racetrack, he attempted a slider in turn one but could only get alongside the #35 of Schmitz. He would lean on him through the corner before racing side by side once again down the backstretch. He would take over the race lead just as Chase Hill showed his nose in the battle as well. Heading into turn one the next lap, Casey Schmitz would see his run at the front of the field come to an end and he over rotated in the corner and spun in front of the field also collecting the #9B of Brandon LaChance. That would now put the #77X of Jake Park alongside Holmes for the next restart. Park got a great restart and took the lead for a moment in turn two. Holmes was able to turn the kart on a dime and drive back to his inside to retain the top spot. Another yellow would bunch the field up with 11 to go. Park got another pretty good restart on the bottom but Holmes proved to be too strong on the top side and powered around him. After surviving that restart Holmes would show the way in the final ten laps. A great battle for second ensued between Chase Hill and Jake Park. That battle allowed Holmes to drive away from the field. With the white flag in the air it looked to be clear skies ahead for Holmes. That was not exactly the case though as about 6 karts had crashed in turn two. Holmes had to drop to the very bottom of the racetrack to sneak by. From there he worked the back straight and the final set of corners to perfection for his first career Open Main Event Victory. He had been so close on a couple of occasions early in the season, but he was finally able to seal the deal. The battle for second waged all the way to the Checkered Flag as Jake Park edged Chase Hill by just .001 seconds at the stripe. Klint Simpson made his first start of the year a good one behind the wheel of the #84DB as he came across the line in the fourth position. Brian McGahan Jr. would round out the top five with a fifth place effort in his #8JR kart.

Tyler Seavey continues to show the way in the Points Standings as he carries an 18 point advantage into the Season Finale. This Championship is far from decided, Chase Hill sits second in the standings and is as hungry as ever to score this Championship. Both drivers are in search of their first Open Championship with the Red Bluff Outlaws. While those are the two favorites heading into the finale, Casey McClain does still mathematically have a shot at the Championship as he sits 56-markers out of the top spot. He will need a lot of help in order to steal this one away though. Amanda Moore sits fourth in the standings but is 119 markers out of the lead. Jake Park rounds out the top five in the standings heading into the finale. Stay tuned to see how this one plays out.

SPORTSMAN POINTS RACE #12

The best Championship Battle we have had all season has been in the Sportsman Class. Heading into Points Race #12 Kris Renaud led Tyler Ritcheson by one point in the standings. Now heading into the finale the roles have been reversed as Ritcheson leads it by one point over Renaud. Neither driver had a great night during Race #12. Zachary Kavert had a great night though as he was victorious in the Trophy Dash and the Main Event.

                The Main Event would see Shawn Fogarty and Mallorie McGahan on the front row for the second straight week. Mcgahan would get the jump in her #17 kart. She would go on to lead the opening nine laps before the #45 of Tyler Ritcheson came roaring onto the scene. Ritcheson took over the race lead on Lap 10 and controlled the remainder of the race until a couple late race restarts. The final restart of the race came with one lap remaining. Ritcheson chose the bottom as he had been the whole race. He had the #2K of Zachary Kavert to his outside. A one lap dash would ensue to determine the winner. The green and white flag went in the air, and before they even go to the start/finish line the two were hitting door to door down the straightaway. In the first set of corners they continued to make contact before Kavert edged ahead and drove away to his second victory of the season in his #2K kart. Mallorie McGahan would be scored second for her 8th top five of the season. Kris Renaud rebounded from an absolutely awful night to finish third in the #35 kart. Tyler Ritcheson actually crossed the line in second but was docked two positions for multiple “rough driving” offenses on the restarts throughout the race. He would eventually be scored as the fourth place finisher. Wyatt Brown quietly wheeled his Ed Brown Trucking #2 kart to another top five finish, his seventh of the season.

Heading into the season finale it is a two horse race at the top of the standings. It is anyone’s guess as to which driver will come away as the Champion. Both of these drivers have called the Red Bluff Outlaws home during the winter for most of their lives. They grew up racing each other and now will battle it out for the Sportsman Championship. Just one point is the difference. One position on the racetrack is all the difference right now. This Championship will be extremely exciting to follow. Regardless of who comes out on top, both drivers have put together great seasons, and have excited the fans in the crowd on many occasions. I am looking forward to seeing how it all plays out.

2017 /2018 RBO POINTS RACE 11

BEGINNER BOX STOCK POINTS RACE #11

BY: ELIJAH JONES

As we have stated all year long, the Beginner Box Stock Class has been dominated by Points Leader Aiden Larimer. Ever since our six week break though, the rest of the field has showed some prowess as many drivers have stepped up their game. During Points Race #11 we saw one young driver break through for his first career Outlaw Kart Main Event Victory.

                When the Green Flag went in the air for the Main Event, it was Braiden McKenzie in the #04 kart that would lead the opening lap after starting from the Pole Position. After a yellow flag with just one lap complete, Jacob Nuxoll would make the move to try and take the lead away on the restart. McKenzie would not be denied that easily though as he held off the #57 kart of Nuxoll for the time being. The very next lap though McKenzie would spin around in turn four allowing Nuxoll and a few others to go racing by. That would prove to be the race winning move for Jacob Nuxoll as he would continue on to win the first race of his young career in just his 11th start. Koen Irvin and Chevy Schroer gave Nuxoll a run for his money though as they put on a great battle for the race lead. Schroer tried to make a late run at him on the final lap but came up just short and had to settle for a second place finish in his Panthera Motorsports #29 kart. Points Leader Aiden Larimer had his work cut out for him all night as he came home in the third position in his #5 kart. The #4K of Koen Irvin challenged for the lead early in the race but fell back to finish in the fourth position for his fourth top five of the season. The #18 of Mason Smith rim rode his way to a fifth place finish his second top five of the season.

                In Time Trials Chevy Schroer was finally unseated as Mason Smith paced the field. Smith turned a qualifying lap of 10.854 seconds and is the first driver to out qualify Schroer this season.

Heat Race competition saw four individual heat races take place. Heat Race #1 was claimed by the #2 kart of Austin Anderson. The win was his sixth Heat Race triumph of the year. Heat Race #2 saw the #29 of Chevy Schroer cross the line first. The win marked his fourth Heat Race win of the season. The #57 kart of Jacob Nuxoll scored his third Heat Race win of the year by way of winning Heat Race #3. The fourth and final Heat Race saw the #84 of Jaxon Coughlin score his fourth Heat Race triumph of the season.

Trophy Dash competition saw four year old Braxton Foster win the first Trophy Dash of his young career in his #21 kart. Braxton, the son of one of the Red Bluff Outlaws most decorated drivers, Ryan Foster is looking to follow in his dad’s footsteps. So far he is doing just that early in his young career.

                Through eleven of thirteen points races, Aiden Larimer continues to pull away in the Points Standings. Coming into the night he had a 56 point advantage, and when the Checkered Flag flew he added another 9 points to that total. That gives Larimer a 65 point advantage over Jaxon Coughlin who occupies the second spot in the standings. Chevy Schroer still sits in the third spot, 69 markers out of the lead. We should have a great battle between Coughlin and Schroer over the final two races for second in the standings. Austin Anderson and Koen Irvin currently round out the top five in the points standings.

BOX STOCK POINTS RACE #11

 The Box Stock Class in 2018 was wide open for the first few races of the season, then Seth Standley came charging to the front of the field. Standley had one off night during Perpetual Trophy night but was back to his true form once again during Points Race #11 as he picked up his fifth Main Event Victory of the season in the Evan’s Furniture Galleries #25 kart.

                When the Green Flag flew on the 25 Lap, 11 kart Main Event it was Luke Hayes and Connor Grasty on the front row. Hayes would get the jump in the #9L kart as he would lead the opening lap. Seth Standley quickly slotted himself into the second position early on. Hayes has been so fast the last few weeks but has just had no luck in the Main Events. On a restart mid race Hayes would get a bad restart and handed the race lead over to Seth Standley. The #9L kart though would recover from that miscue and on a restart with just four laps remaining he would take the race lead back away from Standley. The yellow would fly with just one lap remaining though which would bunch the field up for a Green, White, Checkered finish. Hayes would choose the bottom for the restart, putting Standley on the outside. Standley got a great restart on the top of the racetrack and stole the lead and the win away in the final laps. Standley would cross the line first for his fifth win of the season. Luke Hayes would cross the line a bittersweet second for his seventh top five of the season. Rylinn Renaud backed up his Perpetual Trophy Night Win with a third place effort during Points Race #11 for his ninth top five of the season. Chance Grasty returned to the Box Stock class and picked up a fourth place finish followed by his younger brother Connor Grasty rounding out the top five in fifth.

In total just 11 different drivers signed into the pit area for Points Race #11 in the Box Stock Class. In Time Trials it was the #2M of Blake Martin scoring his third Fast Time of the season and second in a row with a lap  time of 9.835 seconds.

Heat Race action saw two individual Heat Races take place. Heat Race #1 saw Evan Gularte pick up his third Heat Win of the season in his #17M kart. Heat Race #2 was claimed by the #9L of Luke Hayes, his fifth of the year.

Luke Hayes was triumphant in the Trophy Dash once again. He picked up his third consecutive Trophy Dash Victory and his fourth on the season in the Hayes Farms #9L kart.

Heading into Points Race #12, the Championship points battle in the Box Stock Class has a larger gap between first and second as Seth Standley added another five points to his lead over Luke Hayes. Standley now sits 54 markers ahead of Hayes in second. Connor Grasty in third in the standings, 77-points back. Followed by Rylinn Renaud and Tater Reich rounding out the top five in the standings.

250 INTERMEDIATE POINTS RACE #11

 Carson Sousa has been atop the Championship Points Standings in the Intermediate Class since the very first race of the season. After the first five Points Races of the season, he held a 59 point advantage over Carsen Perkins who at the time sat third in the standings. That lead shrank each and every week leading up to Points Race #11, and at the conclusion of the night it was gone all together as we came away with a new Points Leader for the first time this season. Perkins picked up his third win of the season while Sousa once again had troubles in the Main Event. The Points battle is now closer than ever with just two races remaining.

                The Main Event got started with Raymond Baldez and Tanner Pettit on the front row. The green flag flew and the field rocketed into turns one and two. The Baldez and Pettit were still side by side coming off of turn two when they got together, nearly causing the #24P of Pettit to spin to a stop. He continued on but lost about five positions in the process. That allowed Baldez to lead the opening lap in front of new second place runner Carsen Perkins in the #35 kart. The yellow flag would fly on Lap 4 as Tyler Matheny spun in turn four. That would bunch the field up and give the #35 of Perkins a chance to pounce on race leader Baldez. He would do just that as he used the momentum on the top of the racetrack to take the lead out of turn two. The red flag would fly a couple laps later as Skylar Cole turned over in turn four in his #49 kart. When the race went back to green it was all Carsen Perkins up front as the rest of the field worked to figure out the best line around the racetrack. The yellow would fly on Lap 13 bunching the field up once again. The field would quickly get strung out once again as no one was showing the #35 kart any pressure at all. Another yellow flag would fly with seven laps remaining. With Perkins still leading and Raymond Baldez in second it was now or never for the field as the laps were winding down. The yellow would fly once again with five to go for a big wreck on the back straight. Carly Holmes slowed, and as the field raced back to yellow she was hit by Points Leader Carson Sousa who had no chance to avoid her. About 6 karts would end up tangled in turn three. When the race restarted Daniel Whitley made a big time move into turn one to take over second from Baldez. Baldez tried to fight back to the inside but carried too much momentum and drifted up the racetrack allowing Whitley to complete the pass. Just as the white flag went in the air for Carsen Perkins, one kart went sailing into the turn three wall. Drake Standley lost steering down the back straight and slammed into the wall, which propelled him back into traffic where he got hit a couple more times before coming to rest on all fours. He would take his time getting out of the kart but was otherwise ok. Since the Red Flag came out on the final lap the race was called official and Carsen Perkins was declared the winner. Daniel Whitley came up one spot short of the four-peat as he finished second. Tyler Matheny rebounded from his Lap 4 spin to finish third. Raymond Baldez and Anissa Curtice would round out the top five.

Heading into the final two points races of the season, Carsen Perkins is the new Points Leader. He currently holds an 8-point advantage over second place driver Carson Sousa. Preston Carr is also within striking distance at 16-markers out of the top spot. Tanner Pettit and Daniel Whitley round out the top five in the standings but have quite a bit of ground to make up, with very little time left. We’ll see how the next chapter of this battle plays out during Points Race #12.

OPEN POINTS RACE #11

 

The Championship Points Battle closed up just a bit after Points Race #11. Points Leader Tyler Seavey had an off night, while his challenger Chase Hill had an eventful night of his own. Hill had an opportunity to really chop into the lead but his Main Event did not go to plan either. Brandon LaChance on the other hand had a great night, as he scored his second Main Event triumph of the season in his Truck Shop Motors #9B kart.

                The night kicked off with Time Trials for the 27-kart field. When it was all said and done it was once again the Mittry Construction #2X of Chase Majdic setting his sixth Fast Time of the season with a lap time of 8.183 seconds. Majdic was looking as though he would close the gap in the points standings even more, but after some extracurricular activity in the Main Event he was disqualified and suspended from racing this weekend. A tough way to end what was looking to be a promising finish to the season for our defending Track Champion.

Heat Race competition was exciting as always. Heat Race #1 saw the #9B of Brandon LaChance pick up the win, his third of the season. Heat Race #2 was claimed by Jacksonville, OR native Tanner Holmes in the Factory QRC #18T kart. The win was also his third of the season. Jesse Colwell returned from his suspension to win Heat Race #3 subbing for Amanda Moore in the #63A. Colwell’s return from suspension was short lived though as he was parked for the remainder of the season after the Main Event incident with the #2X of Majdic. Heat Race #4 saw Chase Hill continue his heat race domination as he picked up his 8th Heat Race victory of the season in the SALCO Better Energy #1C kart. He announced via his online Vlog this week that he will not be competing in the final two races of the season but will have a substitute driver instead. An interesting decision, as he is right there in the thick of a Championship battle. We will have to wait and see just how serious he was about not racing the rest of the season. The fifth and final Heat Race was claimed by the #6M of Shawn Milligan. Not only was it his first Heat Race win of the year but it locked him into his first Main Event of the season.

With Qualifying and Heat Races completed, the stage was set for the Main Events. The 20-Lap B-Main Event was up first. This race would feature seventeen drivers vying for the final six spots at the back of the A-Main Event. Chase Majdic would get the win, locking himself into the Main Event. Other transfer karts included Brian Mcgahan Jr. (8JR), Casey McClain (51), Ryan Foster (71W), Mike Wheeler (1W), and Kinden Peacock (31).

The Main Event would go green with Ren Eberhart and Brenna Johnson on the front row. Brenna would use the momentum on the top side of the race track to lead the opening lap. The red flag would come out on the second lap of the race after Chase Hill, Tanner Holmes, and Garrett Brown all got together in turn four. When the race got back underway Johnson would jump back out front and lead two more laps before Shawn Milligan slowed on the back straightaway.  On the restart it was still Brenna Johnson leading the race but she now had the #9B of Brandon LaChance to her inside. LaChance got a great restart and was able to look to the inside of Johnson a couple of times but was not able to complete the pass early on. Another yellow flag would slow the competition once again on Lap 6. This time it was Shawn Milligan and Ren Eberhart who tangled in turn four. On the restart the battle up front really began to heat up. LaChance looked for the lead out of the second turn but didn’t have enough room to complete the pass. That allowed the #2X of Chase Majdic to stick his nose into the battle. He would lose the handle coming off of turn four though and fall back into about the sixth position. Majdic’s near spin caused the field to stack up a bit. In the stack up, Tyler Seavey and Mike Wheeler got hooked up and had to come to a stop to be separated. The ensuing restart would be where the complexion of the race changed, as Brandon LaChance got an excellent restart and fought his way by Johnson and into the race lead in turns three and four.  The yellow flag would fly again this time for Brian McGahan Jr. who had spun around on the front straightaway. LaChance would hang on to the top spot on the restart but the battle for second waged on. Brenna Johnson was doing all she could to hold off Chase Majdic in the #2X kart. Majdic though would get nudged out of the racing groove by Jesse Colwell as Colwell moved into third. Another late race yellow would bring up another restart. Casey McClain finally showed some glimpses of what we saw out of him early in the season as he battled it out with Brenna Johnson for the second position. Johnson started to fade in the late stages of the race and the battle at the front of the field came down to Brandon LaChance and Casey McClain. McClain was doing all he could to close the gap between himself and LaChance but just could not get close enough to make something happen. The yellow flag would fly with four laps remaining for Ren Eberhart. On t he restart we had a side by side battle for the lead between LaChance and McClain. In turn four though the drivers running third and fourth Jesse Colwell and Chase Majdic would once again come together, causing both of them to spin and drawing yet another yellow flag. We would quickly have ANOTHER yellow flag which meant the following restart would be single file per the rulebook. The restart would come with two laps to go. LaChance was still up front, with Casey McClain in second and Ryan Foster lurking in the third position. LaChance would get a stellar restart and drive away for his second victory of the season in the Truck Shop Motors #9B kart. Casey McClain finally rebounded with a solid finish as he brought the Factory QRC #51 kart home in the second position. Garrett Brown scored his career best Red Bluff Outlaws Open Main Event finish, as he came across the line third in the Ed Brown Trucking #2 kart. Red Bluff Outlaws Legend, Ryan Foster made his first appearance of the year and came home with a fourth place finish. While Brian McGahan Jr. rebounded from a late race accident to finish in the fifth position.

Tyler Seavey continues to show the way in the Points Standings as he carries a 24 point advantage over Chase Hill into the final two points races of the season. Casey McClain is third in the standings but is 56 markers behind Seavey for the top spot. Chase Majdic sits fourth in the standings and is currently 77 points out of the lead, however with a suspension looming for Majdic, Amanda Moore has an opportunity to make some gains in the standings and possibly jump into the fourth position. Can Tyler Seavey hang on for the Open Championship or will we see someone else steal it away in the final couple of races? Stay tuned to find out.

SPORTSMAN POINTS RACE #11

 The closest Points Battle within the Red Bluff Outlaws this season belongs to the Sportsman Class. Tyler Ritcheson and Kris Renaud have been absolutely neck and neck all season long, and this Championship is coming down to the wire and more than likely wont be decided until the final lap of the season. Renaud however, did help his cause during Points Race #11 as he was able to pick up his second win of the season in the Gary Perkins Racing #35 kart.

                The Main Event would see an interesting front row as Mallorie McGahan lined up on the Pole alongside the #6 kart of Shawn Fogarty. If you remember during Points Race #9 these two crashed just short of the finish line while running first and second in the Main Event allowing Pete Johnston to take the win. Everyone’s eyes were on the front of the field as the Green Flag flew. As the field barreled into turn one, Brandon Williams spun mid pack causing two cars to take evasive action and come to a stop bringing out the yellow. That didn’t slow the race for the lead though as Fogarty powered around the outside in turn four to beat McGahan to the yellow flag and take control as the race leader with one lap complete. Fogarty would take control of the race as we went back to green. The yellow flag would fly again as Derek O’Bannon crashed in turn one. When the race went back to green, Demo Mittry moved into second before another yellow would fly, this time for Points contender Tyler Ritcheson in the #45 kart. He would rejoin at the tail of the field and we would restart once again. Fogarty jumped back out front while Demo Mittry and Kris Renaud battled it out for the second spot. Yet another yellow flag would slow the field and set up another restart for Fogarty. This time Demo Mittry timed the restart perfectly and took the race lead into turn number one. Things would go even more sour for Fogarty just one lap later as he slowed to a stop on the back straightaway, ending his run for the win and his race as well on Lap 13. The restart would put Demo Mittry and Kris Renaud together on the front row. Renaud got a great restart on the top of the track but Mittry leaned on him out of turn two and drove away down the back stretch. Again, the yellow would fly with 17 laps in the books. This time on the restart, Renaud would not be denied. He had a run into turn one again on the top side. This time though, instead of powering around the outside of the track he turned back to the bottom mid corner and got a huge run to the inside of Mittry down the back stretch. Mittry would hang on to the lead still though for the time being. The race would be slowed again with just a few laps remaining. This time Renaud would make the move work as he took the race lead away down the back stretch with four to go. Once out front, Renaud pulled away en route to his second win of the season. Demo Mittry would cross the line in second for just his second top five of the year. Tyler Ritcheson made something out of nothing as he had an awful Main Event but was able to survive and bring the Evan Sanders Racing #45 kart home in third. The top five would be rounded out by Mallorie McGahan in fourth and Wyatt Brown scoring another top five finish in fifth.

Heading into Points Race #12, Kris Renaud now holds a one point advantage over Tyler Ritcheson in the Points Standings. That is one position on the racetrack. Right now it is anybody’s guess as to which of the two will come out as the Champion but I for one am very excited to see how it plays out.

2017 /2018 RBO POINTS RACE 10

BEGINNER BOX STOCK POINTS RACE #10

RED BLUFF YAMAHA, POLARIS, KAWASAKI, CAN-AM PERPETUAL TROPHY NIGHT

BY: ELIJAH JONES

 Perpetual Trophy Night is always a big deal at any racetrack you go to, that is especially the case when young children have the opportunity to win one of these big trophies as well. Thanks to Red Bluff Yamaha, Polaris, Kawasaki, Can-Am we have been able to pass these trophies out every year for 30 years now. This year’s Beginner Box Stock Perpetual Trophy is headed back to Merced, CA for the year as series standout driver Aiden Larimer picked up his 8th win of what has been a dominating season thus far.

                The Main Event began with young Corbin Seay jumping out front in his #7C kart. Corbin has been really impressive since returning from the Christmas break and looks to continue improving his finishes each week. He would lose the race lead on a restart to the #2 of Austin Anderson. Officials however, determined that Anderson jumped the restart and would lose two positions at the next stoppage of the race. That came on Lap 11 and he was moved back multiple positions. Corbin Seay briefly got the lead back before relinquishing it to the #04 of Braiden McKenzie. McKenzie would only lead two laps though as Aiden Larimer hit his stride just in time to get to the lead with three laps remaining. He would cross the stripe nearly two seconds ahead of second place finisher Jaxon Coughlin in his #84. The #7P of Grant Proctor scored his best finish of the season picking up his first top five finish with a 3rd place effort. The #77C of Carson Stephens managed his fourth top five of the season by way of coming across the line in the fourth position. Despite leading with less than five to go, Braiden McKenzie would fall back to finish in the fifth spot in his #04 kart, still his best finish of the season.

                In Time Trials it was once again Chevy Schroer scoring Fast Time in his Panthera Motorsports #29 kart. This week with a lap time of 10.503 seconds. This marks the ninth Fast Time Award of the season for Schroer in just ten races.

Heat Race competition saw four individual heat races for the youngsters. Heat Race #1 was claimed by the #77C kart of Carson Stephens. The win was just his second Heat Race triumph of the year. Heat Race #2 saw the #2 of Austin Anderson cross the line first. The win marked his fifth Heat Race win of the season. The #18 kart of Mason Smith scored his first Heat Race win of the year by way of winning Heat Race #3. The fourth and final Heat Race saw the #7C of Corbin Seay score his fourth Heat Race triumph of the season, and second in as many races.

Trophy Dash competition saw Aiden Larimer park it on the infield in his #5 kart. The win was Larimer’s fourth of the season, although his most recent one was all the way back at the beginning of November during Points Race #4.

                Through ten points races, Aiden Larimer continues to pull away in the Points Standings. Coming into the night he had a 41 point advantage, and when the Checkered Flag flew he added another 15 points to that total. That gives Larimer a 56 point advantage over Jaxon Coughlin who occupies the second spot in the standings. Chevy Schroer still sits in the third spot, 76 markers out of the lead. With Austin Anderson and Koen Irvin rounding out the top five.

BOX STOCK POINTS RACE #10

Over the past four races it has looked as though Seth Standley was unbeatable. He had won four straight races and it hadn’t looked as though anyone had the speed to knock him off his streak. Oh but how quickly things can change though…. Rylinn Renaud surprised just about everyone when he broke out of his slump at the perfect time and took home the Perpetual Trophy Night Win. Just his second career Box Stock win with the Red Bluff Outlaws.

                The lead would change hands eight times throughout the 25 Lap Main Event between six different drivers in what was one of the most competitive races we have seen this year in the Box Stock Class. Luke Hayes led the opening lap before getting caught up in a wreck for the second straight week. That turned the lead over to Blake Martin for a lap before Rowdy Gramps found his was to the front. He would lead until Lap 12 when Seth Standley came into the picture. Standley would relinquish the lead back to Gramps again on Lap 14. Trouble would strike for those two as they collided in turn two racing for the lead and brought out the caution. That would  turn the lead over to the #77 of Brayden Williams with Rylinn Renaud in the second spot. Over the next four laps those two would exchange the race lead each time across the start/finish line. Renaud was finally able to get out front for good with two laps remaining and picked up his first win of the season in his Phantom Racing Chassis #16 kart. The #77 of Brayden Williams would settle for a second place effort. Evan Gularte picked up his second top five of the season with a third place finish. While Evan Gunderson and Seth Standley rounded out the top five finishers.

In total 16 different drivers signed into the pit area for Points Race #10 in the Box Stock Class. In Time Trials it was the #2M of Blake Martin scoring his second Fast Time of the season with a lap  time of 9.612 seconds.

Heat Race action saw three individual Heat Races take place. Heat Race #1 saw Seth Standley pick up his second Heat Win of the season in his #25. Heat Race #2 was claimed by the #9L of Luke Hayes, his fourth of the year. The third and final Heat Race was claimed by the #77 kart of Brayden Williams, his second of the season.

Heading into Points Race #11, the Championship points battle in the Box Stock Class held steady as the top two in points scored the same total during Points Race #10. Seth Standley shows the way atop the charts. He still holds a 49-point advantage over second place driver Luke Hayes. Connor Grasty sits third, 63 markers out of the top spot. With Standley’s winning streak officially broken, and Rylinn Renaud’s winless streak broken, we might just see even more great battles before the season comes to a close.

250 INTERMEDIATE POINTS RACE #10

The 250 Intermediate Class has a new Sheriff in town. He goes by the name of Daniel Whitley and he has emerged as the driver to beat over the last three races. Daniel now has three straight wins and has won four of the last six races in the Intermediate Class. He put his name on the Perpetual Trophy on Saturday night after yet another dominating performance in his #57 kart.

                Daniel jumped out front on the initial start of the race and would lead until Lap 9 when Landon Brooks came into the picture to mix things up. Brooks would take the race lead only to have a caution come out immediately. The restart though was immediately called back though as it was determined by the on track officials that Brooks got on the throttle before the restart zone and thus would be penalized two positions. That handed the lead back to Whitley in the #57 and he would never give it back as he lead the remaining laps to pick up the big win. Tanner Pettit made some moves late in the race but was unable to make the jump to the race lead. He would cross the stripe in second for his fifth top five finish of the season. Landon Brooks crossed the line a bittersweet third as he felt that if he could have stayed up front he had the kart to beat. Carsen Perkins had a great points night as he took over second in the standings and gained a lot of points on the Points Leader Carson Sousa who finished last with mechanical woes. Raymond Baldez would round out the top five with a fifth place effort in his #68B.

In total 29 different drivers signed into the pit area for Points Race #10 in the 250 Intermediate Class. In Time Trials it was the #8C of Anissa Curtice setting Fast Time with a lap time of 8.456 seconds. That was the first Fast Time of the season for the driver from Eureka, CA.

Heat Race competition saw Carly Holmes score her first Heat Race Win of the season in her #22C kart during Heat Race #1. Heat Race #2 was claimed by the #57 of Daniel Whitley, his fourth of the season. Nevada City, CA driver Tyler Matheny piloted his #27T kart to the victory in Heat Race #3, for his second win of the season in heat race competition. The fourth and final Heat Race saw Landon Brooks pilot the Gary Perkins Racing #60L to his second Heat Race win of the year.

Trophy Dash action saw the #57 kart of Daniel Whitley pull into victory lane for his second straight Trophy Dash Win.

Heading into Points Race #11, the Championship points race still shows the RFC Karts #01 of Carson Sousa atop the charts. But things are much tighter now. There are now six drivers within 100 points of the lead. Carsen Perkins climbed over Preston Carr and now sits second in the standings just 24 markers out of the lead. Carr sits third one point behind Perkins for second. Tanner Pettit is fourth in the standings just 58 points back. Despite four Main Event victories, Daniel Whitley is still fifth in the standings and is 84 points out of the top spot. Anything can happen and with just three Points Races left, this Championship Battle is wide open.

OPEN POINTS RACE #10

 The Open Class is shaping up to have a great Championship Points battle as we head into the final three Points Races of the season. That is unless Tyler Seavey continues to dominate the Main Events. Seavey led every lap of last Saturday night’s Main Event en route to his third win of the season and the fourth win of his career in the Open Class at the Red Bluff Outlaws.

                The night kicked off with Time Trials for the 29 kart field. When it was all said and done it was the Mittry Construction #2X of Chase Majdic setting his fifth Fast Time of the season with a lap time of 8.346 seconds. The Fast Time’s have helped out immensely with Majdic’s attempt to close the points gap.

Heat Race competition was exciting as always. Heat Race #1 saw the #31 of Kinden Peacock pick up the win, his second of the season. Peacock has been extremely impressive this season and is one of the upcoming drivers that has flown under the radar but might be on the verge of breaking out in a big way. Heat Race #2 was claimed by Vacaville, CA driver Amanda Moore in the #63A. Surprisingly the win was her first of the season, we’ll see if she is able to pick up a couple more before the season ends. Points Race #9 Main Event winner Brandon LaChance picked up the win in Heat Race #3. LaChance now has two Heat Race wins to his credit this season. Heat Race #4 was very competitive and saw Tristan Spiers and Ren Eberhart race side by side nearly the entire race. In the end Spiers would pick up the win by a nose over Eberhart, his first of the season. The fifth and final Heat Race was claimed by none other than the #1C of Chase Hill. Hill has been nearly lights out in Heat Race competition this year as the win marked his 7th in ten races.

With Qualifying and Heat Races completed, the stage was set for the Main Events. The 15-Lap C-Main Event was up first. This race would feature eight drivers vying for the final six spots at the back of the B-Main Event. Casey Schmitz would get the victory in his Ed Brown Trucking #35 kart. Also transferring to the B-Main were Brenna Johnson (99X), Morgan Sandhagen (25S), Nate Jones (85), Richard Westestyn (3W), and Frankie Guerrini (T2G).

Casey McClain would jump out front at the drop of the Green Flag in the B-Main Event. McClain started the year off hot as the Championship points leader. He looked to be a major contender for the Championship but the last two weeks have severely hurt his chances. He will have to turn it around in the final three races if he wants a shot at this Championship. The B-Main would be relatively uneventful for him as he led every lap to win and transfer to the A-Main Event. McClain and Chase Hill are the only two drivers that have made every Main Event so far this season. Other drivers transferring to the Main Event included Michael Call (89), Tanner Holmes (18T), Michael Tarter (22), Casey Schmitz (35) even after getting upside down early in the race. The final transfer spot went to the #T2G of Frankie Guerrini in his first career start at the Red Bluff Outlaws and I believe his first Outlaw Kart start ever. It didn’t come without incident though as Guerrini got into the #56 of Brian Hubert in the closing laps of the race battling for the transfer spot. Hubert would spin taking out Aiden Spiers as well. The field would race back to the Checkered Flag with Guerrini transferring and Hubert’s night coming to an end.

The Trophy Dash would follow the B-Main. Chase Hill would jump out front on the opening lap and didn’t look back. Chase has really turned over a new leaf not only with his race program but with life in general this year. He has a new vlog on Youtube that he has recently started that chronicles his life and the hard work it takes to succeed. You can check that out by typing his username “1ChaseHill” into the search bar on Youtube. Things really seem to be falling into place for the driver of the #1C kart. He is knocking on the door of his first Open Championship, and would like nothing more than to be on the top step of the podium when the final Checkered Flag falls at the end of the season.

With preliminary action completed it was now time for the 25 Lap Red Bluff Yamaha, Polaris, Kawasaki, Can-Am Perpetual Trophy Night Open A-Main Event. The Main Event would see Points Leader Tyler Seavey start on the Pole in the Amber Norman Racing #91 kart. Ren Eberhart started outside the front row. When the Green Flag flew it was Seavey who would get the jump and lead the opening lap. Ren Eberhart’s night would take a turn on Lap 2 as he spun out of the second place but was able to continue on after dropping near the rear of the field. Seavey quickly drove away from the field and it was evident that he was far and away the class of the field. Brandon Lachance ran second early on with Chase Hill running third. The yellow flag would fly and bunch the field up with just five laps complete. On the Restart it was Chase Majdic who got a great restart propelling himself into the second spot. After yet another restart problems would arise for both Majdic and Chase Hill. Going into turn one a few laps after the restart Chase Hill drove into the back of Majdic entering turn one. Causing both karts to crash and go to the rear of the field. The were a lot of yellow flag’s in the Main Event as all of the drivers on the race track were eager to get to the front of the field. One driver that had nothing to worry about for nearly the entire race was Tyler Seavey. He would lead all 25 Laps to pick up the big win, his third of the season. Brandon LaChance came across the line in the second spot, his fourth top five finish of the year. Despite having a broken wing tree for much of the race causing her wing to be at the completely wrong angle, Amanda Moore was able to wheel her #63A machine to a third place finish. Amanda has quietly had a solid season as this marks her sixth top five of the year. Fourth place went the the #2X of Chase Majdic who had an up and down Main Event. He was the only kart that showed any possibility of keeping up with Seavey. A late race mistake cost him his shot at racing for the win. The final position in the top five went to the #77X of Jake Park as he avoided a last lap crash to pick up a few spots and score his third top five finish of the season.

As we now head into the final three Points Races of the season Tyler Seavey continues to show the way in the Points Standings. Each of the last two races Chase Hill has gained ground early in the night only to give all of those points back in the Main Event. If Hill can put together a complete night he might be able to catch Seavey but so far Seavey’s consistency is what has him up front (three wins to his credit helps out a bit as well). Heading into Points Race #11 the gap is now 29 points between first and second. Casey McClain is still third in the standings but is now 51 markers out of the lead. Chase Majdic might be running out of time but he continues to slowly close in on the leader as he is now 58 points behind Seavey for the top spot. Amanda Moore currently rounds out the top five in the Points Standings but she sits 113 points behind Tyler Seavey.

With the final three races upcoming, it is sure to be a great battle for this Championship between some of the best in the business. Who will come out on top? Stay tuned to find out…..

SPORTSMAN POINTS RACE #10

The Sportsman Class had a different look and feel about it this week. Two of the top drivers in the class were absent due to suspension and we had some different faces emerge at the front of the field along with the usual suspects. At the conclusion of the night it was Zachary Kavert’s turn to pull into the infield as the Main Event winner. The win marked his first Sportsman Win with the Red Bluff Outlaws and his sixth win overall. Interestingly enough, his most recent win was exactly 17 years prior to the day, when he won the Box Stock Main Event on February 10th, 2001.

                The Main Event got underway with the Red, White, and Blue #1 of Chad Duprey on the Pole alongside the #2X of Demo Mittry. Mittry had the advantage down the back straight but going into turn three Duprey made the move to the inside. As he slid up the racetrack the two made slight contact as Duprey drove away to lead the opening lap. Things would get worse for Mittry as he and Pete Johnston tangled in the very next set of corners causing both drivers to come to a stop along with about six others.  When the race restarted it was once again Duprey up front with Tyler Ritcheson now in tow. After yet another restart though it was Zachary Kavert moving into second behind Duprey. Kavert would set his sights on the #1 kart as he had his first career win in his sights. As the race continued on a red flag would come out for Pete Johnston who flipped down the back straight. In typical “Pistol” fashion he kept the kart running and drove away from the accident scene. Unluckily though the impact had bent the rear axle and he would have to take his kart to the trailer. The race went back to Green and Kavert got an excellent restart taking the lead in turn one. Duprey would return the favor in turn three as he tried all he could to hang on to the top spot. Yet another yellow flag would slow the field. On the restart it was the same story as before. Kavert would get another great restart and edged ahead in turn one. He would lead the field down the back straight. Duprey made a desperation move to the inside in turn three. He and Kavert got together resulting in Duprey facing the wrong way in oncoming traffic, Kavert drove away unscathed as the race leader. That was the final challenge that Kavert had to hold off as he drove away over the final eight laps of the race. Zachary Kavert crossed the line as the Main Event Winner and would take home the Perpetual Night Trophy. Brandon Williams had his best run of the year in his #91 kart as he came across the line in second. We haven’t mentioned our top two in Points yet as they both kind of flew under the radar but ended up where they needed to at the end of 25 Laps. Kris Renaud would finish third with Tyler Ritcheson in the fourth position. Derek Matthews rounded out the top five with a fifth place finish, his first of the year.

Heading into Points Race #11, Tyler Ritcheson still holds the Points Lead. Kris Renaud is second in the standings as he inched one point closer this week and sits 11 points out of the top spot. The rest of the top five now looks a lot different as Shawn Fogarty and Mallorie McGahan served their one race suspension and dropped out of the top five. Demo Mittry is now third in the standings, 75 points out of the lead. Zachary Kavert and Darrin Spencer round out the top five in the points standings as they are 123 and 157 points back respectively.
