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 Late Model win at CLS in 2006. The 2018 season was Larson’s rookie year with the World of Outlaws Late Model series, and he looks to improve on his top 10 finish in points for the 2019 campaign which kick-off on February 8th at Screven Motor Speedway in Sylvania, GA.
I’m really thankful and excited about the exclusive partnership with Drydene Performance Products, they are such a great group of people with awesome products,” said Brent Larson. “We share the same values in our desire to win and perform at the highest levels and having Drydene onboard speaks to their commitment to us and to the sport.” Larson, who is represented by motorsports marketing agency Drive Motorsports International, who brokered the deal, continued, “I’m honored to be representing a brand like Drydene, the dyno results and performance testing is outstanding, their oil products will help us be the best that we can and chase that podium, we’re really positive about this season and can’t wait for the first race to start!”
