Merchant was previously 0-2 on the season in final rounds. Both of his losses came to Kye Kelley.
He was initially defeated by Kelley at Virginia Motorsports Park in North Dinwiddie, Virginia. Then, the next race weekend, he lost to Kelley in the final round at Brainerd International Raceway in Brainerd, Minnesota.
Following a several-week break, Merchant was able to get some revenge on Kelley when the tour resumed in August. Merchant defeated Kelley in Tulsa.
This was Larson’s first final round in the Invitational this season. Larson is a former No Prep Kings winner on the tour.
