Myrick Brothers Turn Heads at Outlaw Nationals

Prodigy Race Promotions on Sprint Car Insider. Driver Exclusive- TULARE, Calif. (March 13, 2020) -> Carson and Maverick Myrick made themselves at home on the podium last weekend at the Outlaw Nationals at Keller Auto Raceway.

After quietly finding their groove as the 2019 season came to a close both brothers dropped the hammer and came out firing in the 2020 opener at Plaza Park. Overall, the pair came away from the outlaw nationals with five top fives out of six main events with three podiums and an illustrious first victory.

While the entire weekend was exceptional for both Myrick brothers, perhaps the highlight of the 2020 Outlaw Nationals was the very first micro sprint victory for younger brother Maverick. He laid down the law Friday night and went wire to wire in the restricted 600 feature to capture his first win.

Friday night was a banner night for the Myrick’s as they kicked off their season with just about as much momentum as you could possibly seize. First up, Carson qualified second quick in Stock 600 and 4th quick in non wing. Brother Maverick was only able to churn up 9th quick but it would come to be his only finish outside of the top five the entire rest of the weekend.

Heat races played out in their favor as well. Carson earned a pair of second places in both of his heat races. He started second and finished second in stock while moving up a position to earn second in non wing. For Maverick, the heat race is perhaps where the entire vibe of the weekend shifted. His heat race victory turned the tide on where things were going following a 9th place qualifying effort. After winning the heat it was obvious that he was in the hunt.

The very first main event of the weekend saw Carson battle for the win and land on the podium. Remember, he closed out 2019 with some very strong runs in the stock class. While he’s normally considered a “non wing ringer” he has shown up and shown out with the tool shed up top. He was dicey in the first main event of the year. He put up a challenge for the win but ultimately slipped back to third as the second place finisher was actually the fastest car on the track late. Carson Myrick was not finished however.

In the non wing main event he held his own against some of the stiffest competition in all of Micro Sprint Racing. The night one main event was a five way battle for the win early. Carson was right in the thick of it. The field shuffled positions throughout the entire 30 lap bout. Carson was in podium position until the 11th hour. Right at the end he succumbed to the pressure of a three time Tulsa Shootout Champion, and USAC National Sprint Car winner charging to the front. He ended the night with a fourth place finish to round out night one with a pair of top fives. It was not a bad way to start the season.

Maverick on the other hand started his season the way every driver who rolled through the gates at Plaza Park had hoped to. When the green flag waved on the 25-lap Restricted feature he showed the field that he was the show. It was a wire to wire display of dominance. He was challenged briefly throughout but never once faltered to the pressure.

As the 54 rounded turn four to take the checkered flag his father clinched his fist in triumph. That victory was the culmination of many hours of sacrifice and dedication coming to fruition. It was evident that the Myrick’s had put a ton of effort into the 2020 opener and it was paying off.

However, the job wasn’t done yet. The team had to come back to Keller Auto Raceway the next night and defend their performances on night two of the outlaw nationals.

Things got off to a hot start for both of them. Carson qualifier a close second quick in stock once again and sixth in non wing. Maverick turned in an immense improvement in restricted qualifying with fifth quick.

In the heat races Carson once again earned a pair of second places, this time charging two spots forward in the stock heat and one spot in the non wing. Maverick picked up his second consecutive heat race win making him perfect in heat race competition so far this year.

When main events came rolling out Carson looked determined to match his brothers win from night one. Carson started the stock feature from the top spot and fought hard to keep it the entire race. He battled for the lead the entire 25-laps but eventually came up just short. Despite not getting the win, he did earn the runner up bid and second podium of the weekend, and third top five in three mains to that point to start the season. Unfortunately his non wing result of 17th prevented a perfect four for four top fives to start the year but he takes away many reasons to be confident moving forward.

Maverick was once again able to bring home a top five. Starting the feature from fourth with a host of heavy hitters in front of him he knew his work would be cut out if he wanted to sweep the weekend. He was able to hold his own however and start his season with a win and both finished inside the top five. As the season progresses Maverick Myrick has proven to himself that he will be a contender for wins and championships this season.

While the results on paper weren’t as flashy on night two the driving was. The level of confidence Maverick and Carson Myrick picked up from night one to night two was evident. Both brothers drove with a new sense of stature on night two. As the season moves forward Carson and Maverick Myrick now know where they fit into the running order of their respective classes and the expectation is to fit their way into the number one spot on a regular basis.

Following the season opening success of the Outlaw Nationals look for the Myrick brothers to earn their share of success on a regular basis in 2020.

It’s showtime and the Myrick Brothers are ready to show up.
