Kyle Larson was scheduled to race in tonight's second annual Brad Sweet’s Placerville Short-Track Outlaw Showdown but will sit out the race due to lingering effects from his crash in the Auto Club 400 at Auto Club Speedway.

"I am very sorry I won't be racing at Placerville Speedway today," Larson said in a statement on Twitter. "After the wreck I had in Sunday's Cup race, my body is still too sore to compete today. With the NASCAR off-weekend coming up, it's best to use that time to let my body recover and not risk anything else."

Placerville is the site of Larson's first victory in a sprint car when he won the California 360 Sprint Car Civil War race at the quarter-mile oval at the age of 15 in 2007. Larson was also scheduled to compete in tonight's USAC Western States Midget Series season opener.

"It kills me to make this decision because I've been looking forward to this race for months now," Larson said. "I'll still be there tonight as a spectator and will be signing autographs. Thank all of you for your support!"

Larson is a four-time World of Outlaws winner with his last victory coming at Antioch Speedway in California in 2013. In fact, all of Larson's World of Outlaws wins have come in his home state - Stockton 99 Dirt Track (2013) and Silver Dollar Speedway (2011 and 2012).
