Over 75 Outlaw Karts travelled from all over North America to Salisbury, North Carolina’s Millbridge Speedway for the QRC Speed51 Open, but it was a 14-year-old local driver who set fast time for the highest paying Outlaw Kart race ever.

 

With a lap of 10.045 seconds, Mooresville, North Carolina’s Ethan Mitchell beat out NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers Kyle Larson, and Ricky Stenhouse Jr., two-time Chili Bowl Nationals winner Rico Abreu, and multi-time Millbridge winner Tanner Thorson.

 

Mitchell’s lap was just three one-hundreths of a second faster than Larson’s lap, which was a time of 10.076 seconds.

 

graphic-speed51-purchase-two-dayDefending race winner Logan Seavey qualified sixth with a lap time of 10.157 seconds.  The 2014 winner of this race, Mike Wheeler, qualified ninth with a time of 10.197 seconds.

 

Nick Hoffman qualified 13th fastest, Buddy Wise qualified 22nd, Karsyn Elledge qualified 46th, and Kevin Thomas Jr. qualified 69th.

 

The slowest qualifier on the night was just 1.2 seconds slower than Mitchell’s lap.  Hannah Farrell qualified 79th with a time of 11.233 seconds.
