Brent Larson set out to tackle his first national tour with the World of Outlaws in 2018, competing for the Rookie of the Year title alongside longtime sponsor Arnie Ranta.
A 10th-place effort with 8 top-10 finishes in 2018 set the owner-driver combo up with a great sponsorship deal for 2019 with Drydene Performance Products.
Swapping their signature black-and-highlighter color scheme for the iconic Drydene red-and-white, the “B1 Bomber” came back for his second full-time season in 2019, notching a ninth-place finish in the overall points standings.
With 100+ career wins under his belt, going back to his days in the Modified ranks, Brent won the 2007 DTRA Late Model regional championship and is a 5-time Cedar Lake Speedway track champion.
Brent has also won track championships at both the Superior Speedway (Gondik Law Speedway) and Red Cedar Speedway, in addition to the KRA Speedway points title he earned in 1995. He currently sits seventh on the all-time Late Model win list at Cedar Lake Speedway with 28 victories in the division dating back to his first win at the facility in 2006.
