Larry was forced to retire after he got into a wreck and realized he may not be young enough to take the bumps. He has been known to browse the racing websites and always accuse the website operator (Chris) of writing novels. Larry is still one of Matt’s kart part suppliers even after retirement from racing, and he is always in our prayers having gone through a few health issues.
