CONCORD, N.C. – Brent Larson returns to the World of Outlaws CASE Construction Equipment Late Model Series for his seventh season this year with new goals in mind. 

The Lake Elmo, Minn., native is laying a path for improvement after finishing 12th in the series point standings last year, highlighted by a top-five finish at Atomic Speedway and eight top 10s. 

Confident in the speed his No. B1 machine produces every feature, Larson is targeting a better pace in his qualifying and heat race performances. 

“I think we (raced) well (in 2023),” Larson said. “We just have to work on qualifying and the early part of the night. We did good at adapting and getting better through the year, we just need to come out stronger earlier in the night because we are usually [among] the top three fastest cars late in the night, so we don’t start so far back.

“I know we’ve got something to build on, but something to work towards [as well].”

He’s already circled several tracks on this year’s schedule he’s excited to get to, including Cedar Lake Speedway – where he’s a five-time track champion – and even several new tracks. 

“I’m looking most forward to Deer Creek Speedway, Atomic Speedway, and all the tracks around my home,” Larson said. “I’m looking forward to some of the tracks that the Outlaws haven’t been to either in a long time, or never before, so I think there’s a handful of tracks that I would say the traveling guys haven’t been to and the new tracks level the playing field.

“I think it’ll be a fun time.” 

With six years of World of Outlaws racing under his belt, Larson said his week to week and pre-race routines of having everything he needs in place are the biggest key to being successful on the grueling 54-race schedule. 

“I think the biggest thing it takes is preparation,” Larson said. “You have to be set for whatever could happen ahead of time. I make sure we have two of everything, stay well rested, and have enough of a margin for things when go wrong. Making sure you have people who you can draw from places in the country where I can catch a break or regroup.

“It’s a little bit of everything, but preparation is the biggest thing to me.” 

Larson begins the chase for a World of Outlaws CASE Late Model Series title and his first series win when the season begins during the DIRTcar Sunshine Nationals at Volusia Speedway Park, Jan. 17-20.
