Turkey Night Notes: Larson Gets Trophy & Day Dazzles

VENTURA, Calif. — Kyle Larson’s victory in the 82nd running of the Turkey Night Grand Prix was his third USAC national midget victory in three starts over the last two weeks in California. “All the Turkey Night trophies I have from Ventura are probably some of the coolest trophies I have in my collection,” Larson stated. “They get better and better every year and it’s probably the main reason why I come and do this race – just to come and win these awesome trophies. The runner-up result for Day was the best finish by a Turkey Night Rookie since Cannon McIntosh in 2019. “It’s so cool to run it for the first time and then to run second and be Rookie of the Race. • Emerson Axsom started 23rd and finished sixth to earn his best career Turkey Night result, which came on the heels of a 24th to eighth run in the same race a year ago.
