  • Carson Macedo is a fourth-generation driver from Lemoore, Calif. He started racing at five years of age in a 100cc junior sprint. He continued climbing through the micro sprint ranks with much success until he was gifted with the opportunity to drive a winged sprint car for Tom and Tommy Tarlton on a partial schedule at the age of 15. His first year in 2012 turned out to be a learning year with a goal to gain as much seat time and experience as possible. Toward the end of the year Carson picked up his first ever sprint car victory in Chowchilla, Calif., a victory that would gain confidence for the year to come.
  • 2013 turned out to be another learning year for the 16-year-old driver. With a total race count of 42 races spread between both 360 and 410 wing sprint car action. At the end of 2013 Carson was crowned Champion of the Rebel Cup Traveling 360 series.
  • 2014 turned out to be a great year for Macedo. He scored his first 410 victory of his career and what would also turn out to be one of the biggest wins of his carrier on the first night of the Gold Cup Race of Champions in Chico, Calif. Another highlight to the year was ending up runner-up in Taco Bravo 360 Series Points at Ocean Speedway in Watsonville, Calif.
  • 2015 was a year to remember! Macedo and Tarlton Racing decided to race full-time with the King of the West 410 series. After a 21-race schedule Carson was crowned the King of the West Champion, earning himself and Tarlton Racing their first 410 KWS championship. He also ended up with three wins on the year including a 410 win in Chico, driving the famed Clyde Lamar 3C machine and the 10,000 to win Mark Forni Classic in Placerville, Calif.
  • 2016 marked the first national season for Macedo. He landed an opportunity to drive a midget for a 50-race schedule with Keith Kunz Motorsports with the backing of Tarlton Motorsports. Carson was also gifted with the opportunity to drive a part time schedule with Mintz Motorsports, a winged 410 sprint car team based out of Ohio. Carson saw great success in his first year driving a midget, picking up three wins including the annual Pepsi Nationals at Sun Prairie, Wisc. He was also able to claim the honors to be named USAC National Midget Rookie of the Year and be crowned the USAC Indiana midget Champion. Macedo finished out the year with five wins and some very valuable experience.
  • 2017 was an awesome year for Macedo as he was able score 12 wins racing primarily in the midwest of the United States for Joe Gaerte Racing in the famed 3G machine. A couple of highlights for the season include winning the Canadian Sprint Car Nationals during Oshweken Speedweek, and picking up an All Star Circuit of Champions win at Lincoln Speedway in Lincoln, IL. Macedo was also able to pick up a win at Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio driving the Pete Grove owned No. 70. 
  • 2018 was a breakout year for Macedo as he was able to pick up some prestigious victories between a trio of powerhouse teams. Primarily competing with the All Star Circuit of Champions, Macedo and the Gaerte/Norman 3G team were able to pick up five series victories as well as finishing second in the series' driver points. Stepping into two dream oppurtunities, Macedo piloted the Jason Johnson Racing No. 41, as well as the Tony Stewart Racing No. 14 during the 360 and 410 Knoxville Nationals. JJR and Macedo were able to have a strong two weeks, winning their preliminary night feature and finishing second in the 360 Nationals finale. They then backed that up with a second-place finish at the Capitani Classic, as well as a sixth-place finish during the final night of the 5-Hour Energy 410 Nationals. During that week TSR and Macedo competed in the ASCS National Front Row Challenge at Southern Iowa Speedway, again Macedo was able to shine by claiming victory. It was announced at the end of the 2018 season that Macedo was hired to compete full-time with the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series for Kyle Larson Racing.
