The CES Enduro Series and Tag USA Series are pleased to announce that the race scheduled for June 28, 29, and 30 at Grattan Raceway will proceed as planned. This event will be particularly meaningful as it commemorates the life and legacy of our beloved father, Dave Larson Sr., who tragically passed away on June 14, 2024, in an unexpected motorcycle accident.

Dave Larson Sr. was a cornerstone of the karting community, known for his passion, dedication, and the many wonderful experiences he shared with fellow racers. His untimely passing has left us heartbroken, but we are committed to honoring his memory by continuing the sport he loved so much.

Taking the helm of the CES Enduro Series will be his sons, Davy Larson and Nash Larson. They will work closely with Tag USA’s Marty Casey and Tim Wilkerson to uphold and expand the legacy of GEM Products, founded by Earl Larson and carried forward by Dave Larson Sr. Together, we aim to build upon their significant contributions to the karting industry and foster the tight-knit karting family that spans three generations.

Special Note from TAG USA’s Marty Casey: “Dave Larson has been a friend, business partner, and like a brother to me. The loss of Dave has been so overwhelming for us all. I’m lost for words. But after talking with the boys, the legacy of Dave Larson and Earl Larson will live on. For me, I will miss my friend, business partner, and brother. Dave, you were the best, my friend. Love ya and Godspeed. I will see you again, my friend.”

Special Note from WKA President Kevin Williams: “Everyone at WKA is saddened by the passing of Dave Larson. Dave and CES have been long-time partners of WKA, supporting the same goals of providing great events for the karting community. He meant so much to so many with his tireless help getting racers on track, me included. Although Dave will truly be missed, it is refreshing to see his family, especially his sons Davy and Nash continue the CES program for the benefit of our great sport.”
