Macedo Fourth at Ocean Before Huge Wreck At Thunderbowl


PETERSEN MEDIA- Spending his weekend wrapping up a second place run in the Taco Bravo Series Standings, and competing with the King of the West Series, Carson Macedo put on quite a charge at the Ocean Speedway before his night came to an early end after a big-time wreck at the Thunderbowl on Saturday night.

“Paul Baines gave me a great car on Friday night, and on Saturday we were pretty good too, but I got up into the wall and went flipping pretty good,” Carson Macedo added.

23 cars checked into the Ocean Speedway on Friday night for the season finale, and a 13th quick effort in time trials, put Macedo behind the inversion for the night.

Finishing fifth in his heat race, the Lemoore, CA driver lined up 13th for the 30-lap feature event.

Following a caution on the initial start, the 30-laps would click off with no stoppages, which Macedo admitted would hurt him a little, but he was still able to make some moves.

Under extended green flag run, Macedo was able to put his Elite Landscape Construction/Tarlton and Son, Inc./WFO Apparel backed No. 21x machine all over the speedway, as he had some great car speed in his charge to the front.

Needing a caution to bunch the field back up, Macedo would get into the fourth spot, but simply ran out of time, as he chased after the lead trio, and ended up with a fourth place finish, putting him second in the final Taco Bravo Series standings.

“Overall we had a really strong Taco Bravo campaign,” Macedo said. “We were really fast, and in contention every night. I have to thank this entire team for all of their help, and congratulate Shane Golobic and his team on their championship.”

Saturday night saw Macedo and company check in at the Thunderbowl in Tulare, CA for the Cotton Classic.

Lining up 16th in the feature event, Macedo again began working his way forward in the early stages, until trouble broke out at the halfway point.

With a car spinning in Turn one in front of Macedo, Macedo got into the corner a little too hot, and the end result was his machine flipping down the fence line, ultimately ending his night.

“We got okay in the feature event, and then there was a car spinning in one, and I got out of shape, and flipped, and ended our night,” he added. “I’m okay. Just feel bad for tearing up some equipment, but I know Paul Baines and everyone will work hard and have us ready to go for the Trophy Cup.”

Tarlton Racing would like to thank Elite Landscape Construction, Tarlton and Son, Inc., WFO Apparel, Tachi Palace Hotel and Casino, Pabco Gypsum, Bandy and Associates, All Star Performance, Corporate America Investments, and BG Lubricants for their support through the 2014 season.

ON TAP: Macedo and his Tarlton Racing team will stay close to home the new few weekends, as they will be at the Thunderbowl in Tulare, CA this Saturday night in what kicks off three consecutive weekends of racing at the Thunderbowl.
