Up Close with Micro Driver, Carson McCarl

At the age of 9, Carson decided that driving a racecar was what he needed to be doing. The McCarl family are racers, and Carson was going to follow the path set by his father, World of Outlaw driver Terry McCarl. He started out, like many other young racers do, in a go-kart and traveled with his older brother to the indoor events in Waterloo, IA. This worked out very well because the entire family was able to participate—throughout the summer months, his dad is out racing with the Outlaws. With many heat and feature wins behind the wheel of the go-kart, it was time to move up to something with a wing. In 2007, Carson jumped in the seat of a 600cc Micro Sprint and was teammates with his older brother, Austin. The two of them both raced at English Creek Speedway just outside of the legendary race city of Knoxville, IA. His Rookie season, he dominated 4 features and finished in the top five in points with a 4th.
This year, now at the age of 14, Carson started out with an indoor race in Kansas City and will be racing the 600cc Micro in Waverly, Nebraska, on Sunday nights at Wavelink Raceway Park. According to his father, if Carson’s grades stay up and he keeps doing well behind the seat of a micro, you might just see the young racer piloting a 305 Winged Sprint Car later in the year. Those are the steps a young racer needs to take, and so far, his dream of becoming a professional driver in the ranks of Indy Cars is getting closer and closer.
