I dont know a lot of details but Larry passed away on Tuesday . For more details you can go to the obituaries at in Independence Mo For you guys that dont know he was the owner of FAIRFIELD MOTORSPORTS in Independence MO where he worked with his son Steven.

The karting industry lost a good man and one heck of a machinist . For those of us that knew him and was a friend he will be sadly missed but always remembered in our hearts . Thoughts and prayers to the family.

Been involved in Karting over 20 yrs. Never met a better ambassador for the sport. Always the first to help @ the track (sticker on the motor didn't matter). Ran his shop and lived his life with absolute integrity and honesty. Proud to have known him as a friend.
Eternal rest grant unto Larry O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, in the mercy of God rest in peace.
