Kyle Larson won’t come back empty-handed from his racing trip abroad.

Larson won his second midget event Wednesday as part of a planned six-race tour of New Zealand.

The Chip Ganassi Racing driver won the feature in the United Truck Parts World 50 Lapper at Western Springs Speedway in Auckland.

He won by 1.4 seconds over fellow American driver Spencer Bayston, who fell back to last on the first lap before driving through the field.

Both of Larson’s victories on the tour were at Western Springs. The first win came on Dec. 30.

Two of the planned races were rained out and Larson spun in another. His final race is set for Friday at Western Springs. He will then return to the United States to take part in the 32nd annual Chili Bowl Nationals, which begins Jan. 9.
