Cleveland, OH (September 9, 2004)-Parker Hannifin and the worldwide ParkerStores are pleased to announce the addition of Kyle Larson and MAJ1K Motorsports to the ParkerStore Racing family. Larson joins World of Outlaws star Donny Schatz and ASCA standout Bob Ream, Jr. in the open wheel ranks.
Larson is a 12 year old 'hot shoe' that competes 50 weeks per year on regional tracks in the Northern California area, as well as on the QRC All Stars Tour. He is currently leading the point's race in the 125cc class on what is billed as the World's Largest Outlaw Sprint Kart Tour. MAJ1K Motorsports also competes on the indoor circuit over the winter months.
"You do not find someone that stands out like this very often", said John Strand with ParkerStore Racing. "Watching this kid totally blew me away. He was so fast and so smooth it was unbelievable. When I went over to talk to the team, I was expecting an 18 year old to get out of the kart. I was in shock when a four foot tall kid with a huge smile climbed out. This kid has what it takes to make it to the upper levels in motorsports"
The young outlaw drew attention to himself while competing at the English Creek Speedway near Knoxville, IA. The Larson family was in the Knoxville area for the 2004 Knoxville Nationals as well as to support the new English Creek Speedway that is a few miles south of the famed half mile. The track owners have plans to some day hold the Outlaw Sprint Kart Nationals in conjunction with the Knoxville Nationals.
