SK Light Modified Driver Corey Larson Suspended For Brutal Assault On Track At Waterford Speedbowl

A vicious maneuver on the racetrack Saturday night at the Waterford Speedbowl by driver Corey Larson has been met with an equally vicious punishment by the track.

Waterford Speedbowl officials announced Tuesday that Larson, of Bolton, has been suspended indefinitely by the track. The suspension runs at minimum through the entire 2013 season at Waterford.

Larson also faces the possibility of a NASCAR suspension, which would bar him from competing in NASCAR sanctioned events at Stafford Motor Speedway and Thompson International Speedway.

The punishment stems from an incident that took place during the 25-lap SK Light Modified feature Saturday at Waterford in which Larson hit driver Paul French under caution.

Contact between and French and Larson under green sent Larson spinning to bring out a caution. While the race was under caution, Larson came from behind French and drove into the side of his car. Larson’s car drove up the driver’s side and partially onto the roof of French’s car, pushing French’s car to the wall in turn two on the track.

Larson was escorted from the track by the Waterford Police Department after the incident.

According to a release from the Speedbowl, Larson was suspended for:

-Reckless driving on the racetrack; improper use of a race vehicle, on the racetrack, with malicious intent.

-Contact under caution or after race completion (willful or negligent).

-Threatening or physical confrontations; endangering the safety of competitors and track officials on the racetrack following disqualification from event and under yellow flag conditions.

-Unsportsmanlike conduct; endangering the safety of others on the property that is the Waterford Speedbowl.
