DC Solar is moving to the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (MENCS) for the 2018 season as a primary partner with both Kyle Larson and Jamie McMurray. Wasting no time getting on track with Larson, the No. 42 Camaro will feature DC Solar as the primary partner for ‘The Clash at Daytona’, the season opening non-points race.
In addition to partnering with Chip Ganassi Racing (CGR) in the MENCS, DC Solar will continue to be seen in the XFINITY Series for several races on the No. 42 Chevrolet with both Larson and McMurray behind the wheel. DC Solar and Larson previously joined forces in 2016 when Larson drove a DC Solar sponsored truck to victory lane in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) race at Eldora Speedway. He also picked up a fourth-place finish at Homestead-Miami Speedway later that same year with DC Solar onboard. DC Solar also served as a co-primary partner with Larson and the No. 42 MENCS team in last season’s finale at Homestead, which resulted in a third-place finish.-CGR Jan 16 - 5:01 PM

With about 15 laps to go in the 32nd Annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals it looked as if 2018 was the year that Kyle Larson would finally score a Golden Driller of his own.

His friends like Rico Abreu and Christopher Bell had already won the Chili Bowl, but he hadn’t. But with 10 laps to go, fate decided it had other plans. Larson’s engine went up in smoke, and so too did his Chili Bowl dreams. Bell went by and went on to score the win in his favorite race for the second year in a row. Larson finished 19th due to the engine failure. Behind Bell by about a second and a half finished two-time Chili Bowl champion Rico Abreu.

After a successful first season with Kyle Larson and the No. 42 team, Credit One Bank, the Official Credit Card of NASCAR, will expand the relationship with Chip Ganassi Racing (CGR) by becoming the largest sponsor of the No. 42 for the 2018 season.

Credit One Bank’s multi-year deal will kick off with the 2018 season-opening Daytona 500, which will be the 60th running of the Great American Race. In addition to the Daytona 500, Credit One Bank will serve as the primary sponsor for Larson, who will be in his fifth full-time season in NASCAR’s premier series, and the No. 42 team throughout the 2018 season. Credit One Bank, who first partnered with CGR in 2016 for several races with the No. 1 team, will also continue as an associate sponsor with Jamie McMurray and the No. 1 team in 2018.-CGR

Kyle Larson was the highest finishing non-playoff driver in the Coke 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway. For a while it seemed like Larson was going to play the role of spoiler as he led 145 laps and captured both stage wins. Larson's third-place finish came after four DNF's in a row starting with his playoff ending afternoon at Kansas.

Larson will enter 2018 with a clean slate after being kicked out of the playoffs due to an engine failure at Kansas at the end of the second round. Larson was on a vast majority of fantasy teams to make it all the way to Homestead to fight for the championship and an equally impressive percentage of experts and fantasy players saw him winning the whole thing. The 25-year-old driver has a long future in the sport but will be antsy to capture more wins and have the opportunity to fight for the championship again in 2018.

Kyle Larson posted the third fastest speed in the final round of qualification for the Can Am 500 at Phoenix International Raceway to become the highest qualified driver who is not in playoff contention.

Larson desperately needs a good run. He has sustained crash damage in three consecutive races and lost all his momentum. He is still expensive in salary cap games and that makes him risky, but he is liable to fly under the radar and could be a good differentiator.

Kyle Larson recorded the quickest 10-lap average in Happy Hour for the AAA Texas 500 at Texas Motor Speedway with a speed of 189.145 mph during his first 10 laps on the track.

Larson qualified only 11th, so he has a chance to earn some positive place-differential points if and when the race extends by a green flag period.

Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series regular Kyle Larson, driving the No. 42 ENEOS Chevrolet Camaro,, tops the speed chart in the Final Practice session for the XFINITY Series O'Reilly Auto Parts 300 at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth.

He ran a fast lap of 190.631 mph. 22 Ryan Blaney, No. 20 Erik Jones, No. 9 William Byron and No. 1 Elliott Sadler round out the top-five of the 35 cars out on the track. The No. 74 Dodge, driven by Mike Harmon, was the slowest in the final practice session. Larson also had a 10-lap average speed of 186.417 mph. This was the best of the eight cars running at least 10 consecutive laps in this session.

Kyle Busch had the quickest 10-lap averages during Saturday morning’s practice for the First Data 500 at Martinsville Speedway with a speed of 94.460 mph from laps eight through 17.

Busch is expected to run well at Martinsville, but he is going to face some stiff competition. Depending on where he qualifies, he could be a good value if he has the ability to earn place-differential points.

Kyle Larson posted the second fastest lap in the first practice session for the First Data 500 at Martinsville Speedway with a speed of 95.299 mph.

An unfortunately rare blown engine early last week eliminated Larson from contention and while that is bad news for the driver and his fans, it has not diminished his value to fantasy players. Larson has something to prove; start him with confidence.

Kyle Larson posted the fastest single lap of practice Saturday morning for the Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway with a speed of 181.671 mph.

For Larson, the burst of speed came a little too late. He qualified only 13th for the race, but that could indicate he is going to earn positive place differential points when he earns a top-10.

Kyle Larson finished 10th in the Bank of America 500 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Larson also started 10th, so this way pretty much a wash for fantasy players. Given the high expense of his salary cap, there were better options in play. Larson was leading the race late and one of the contenders to win until a problem on a late-race pit stop derailed the team.

Kyle Larson finished fifth in the Apache Warrior 400 at Dover International Speedway, which was his fourth consecutive top-five.

His victory at Richmond International Raceway in the regular season ender was followed by a fifth at Chicagoland Speedway and a second at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Larson may well have more momentum on his side than any other driver in the field currently.

Kyle Larson finished second in the ISM Connect 300 at New Hampshire International Speedway. He added another point to his fantasy total for leading one lap.

Larson entered the race second in the standings on the strength of a good run at Chicagoland and 33 bonus points from the regular season. He is becoming a weekly threat on every track type. New Hampshire was statistically a good track for him and that made him a predictable value. In the post-race interview, he pointed out that top-fives will get him to Homestead-Miami Speedway with a shot at the championship.

Kyle Larson posted the fastest single lap in Friday’s practice at New Hampshire Motor Speedway with a speed of 135.714 mph.

Larson was part of seven playoff drivers who topped the standings, but little things can make a big difference at this stage of the season. He beat Kyle Busch by .077 seconds, but was more than a tenth faster than Kasey Kahne.

Kyle Larson finished fifth at Chicagoland to help pad his points in the standings.

Larson entered the race second in the points with a large enough lead over 12th not to worry about advancing to round two. But like Truex, he wants to prove that he can advance with wins instead of needing the bonus points. He continues to be one of the best fantasy values in all NASCAR games.
