Red Bluff, CA --
Four drivers repeated their opening night wins as the Red Bluff Indoor Winter Season ran leg 2 of a 14 race schedule on Saturday night. Only the dash eluded 12 year old Kyle Larson as he posted quick time for a second straight week and won both his heat and the feature in his Parker Store 125 Intermediate outlaw kart. He ran third in the dash. He was four seconds in front of heat winner Derek Copeland at the checkered flag in the 20 lapper with 12th starter Josh Keheley from Mariposa finishing third. All three of the QRC All Star Tour point leaders got feature wins as T McCain won his second straight Open Outlaw kart A Main and Keith Bloom Jr was victorious in the Open Intermediate A Main (see separate story). Tyler Reddick won two championships at Cycleland this summer and also was the Lakeport champion on Friday nights. He has remained red hot here at Red Bluff as the Corning 8 year old won his second straight 20 lap Box Stock A Main by 2.5 seconds over Jason Mittry. Casey McClain ran third. Cyle Allison pulled off a rare clean sweep in the Beginner Box Stock action as he turned quick time, won the dash, his heat and the feature. On opening night, only fast time had eluded him. Second quick David Lee was second this week to the Yuba City racer and third quick Chase Majdic ran third. After timing in fourth quick, Kevin Acosta raced to wins in both the dash and the feature for the F200 class. Defending champion Clarence Marshall ran second ahead of Mike Larson, the father of 125 star Kyle.
K Larson was quickest of the 20 125s with his 9.323, but that just nipped the 9.355 posted by David Chaves. Dillon Silverman ran a 9.442 and Brian Southers had a 9.511. Sixth quick Brad Patchen won the dash over Silverman and K Larson. K Larson won the opening heat race over Riley Gomes and Southers.

Rounding out the dash field were R J Johnson, Tyler Seavey and Reddick. Reddick won the dash from the pole with Mittry second ahead of Bell.

McClain won heat 3 ahead of Nevada’s Jay Primm and it was Johnson taking heat 4 over Shane Hopkins.

Reddick’s best feature lap was a 10.468, but McClain was a tick quicker at 10.464.
Allison has a lot of experience in the faster box stocks at Cycleland, but wanted to race one more season in the Beginner Box Stock class at Red Bluff to chase the track title. He was quickest of the 24 entries with a 12.228 lap and previous week fast timer David Lee had a 12.317. Majdic turned in a 12.437 and rookie Richie Carrel was fourth quick at 12.486 Logan Seavey and Devin Lee also made the dash. Allison came from last to win the dash over L Seavey and Majdic.
