Kyle Larson finished ninth in the AAA 400 at Dover International Speedway, which was his third consecutive top-10 on this track. His worst effort on the high-banked miler was 11th—earned in his inaugural attempt.
No one could run with Kevin Harvick in the AAA 400, but Larson had a legitimate shot at earning a top-five late in the race. He failed to find much speed during the final restart and got shuffled backward, but he will be one of the top ranked drivers when the series returns to Dover next year. Oct 4 - 8:45 PM

For the second straight year, Kyle Larson was the best non-Chaser at Chicagoland Speedway in the playoff kickoff. He finished seventh in the 400 after scoring a third in last year’s edition of this race.

Larson ran in the top 15 most of the afternoon and was on the cusp of the lead lap in the late going. He surged at the right time to finish seventh and keep a perfect record of top-10s alive on the Midwestern 1.5-mile track.

Sprint Cup driver Kyle Larson was fastest in the lone practice session for the Camping World Truck Series American Ethanol e15 225 at Chicagoland Speedway.

The 175.052 mph lap in the No. 00 Haas Automation Chevrolet Silverado was the fastest of the 34 trucks out on the track for the practice leading up to Friday night’s event. No. 88 Matt Crafton, No. 98 Johnny Sauter, No. 19 Tyler Reddick and No. 17 Timothy Peters are the rest of the top 5 on the speed chart. Norm Benning was the slowest (153.536 mph) in the No. 6 Chevrolet Silverado.

Sprint Cup driver Kyle Larson has been tabbed to drive the No. 00 Haas Automation Chevrolet Silverado in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) race at Chicagoland Speedway on Sept. 18.

A three-time winner across NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) and NCWTS competition, the event marks Larson’s first series start since earning a runner-up finish at Homestead-Miami Speedway in 2014. In nine career NCWTS starts, Larson has notched one victory (Rockingham Speedway in 2013), four top-five and six top-10 finishes with two poles.

Kyle Larson posted the fastest single in the first practice session for the race with a speed of 125.535 mph.

Richmond is traditionally kind to former sprint car racers with Kasey Kahne and Tony Stewart getting their first victories on this track. Larson must win to get into the Chase and he is getting off on the right foot.

Kyle Larson finished 10th in the Bojangles' Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway. That was his second top-10 in two starts on this track.

Larson has one more opportunity to make the Chase, but he must win at Richmond International Raceway next week. On that track he has been solid and predictable, but lacks a single top-10. His worst result was a 16th last spring and his best was an 11th in the Federated Auto Parts 400. The good news is that several former sprint car racers earned their first career win at Richmond.
Sep 7 - 4:51 PM

Kyle Larson posted the quickest 10-lp average in the first practice session for the Irwin Tools Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway with a 125.701 from laps 33 through 42.

Larson also made long runs in final practice and landed second on the 10-lap average chart. He qualified 12th and is close enough to the front to use his durability and climb slowly through the field. This spring he started 14th en route to a seventh-place finish.
Aug 21 - 9:59 PM

With only one minute remaining on the clock, Kyle Larson posted the fastest single lap in practice for the Irwin Tools Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway. His fastest lap was 129.833 mph, which was 0.142 seconds faster than Matt Kenseth.

Larson needs to win in order to qualify for the Chase and this has actually been a good track for him in his short career. In three previous starts, he has never finished worse than 12th at Bristol and has an average of 9.7.

Kyle Larson has started only one previous race at Watkins Glen International and he was not very impressive in time trials last year. He posted the 23rd-fastest lap and was forced to come from the middle of the pack.

Despite his modest start, he finished fourth in his previous outing. This year he will not have to work as hard from the beginning of the afternoon with a sixth-place effort for the Cheez-it 355k at the Glen. He needs an incident-free race to score a top-10, but that is well within reach.
Aug 8 - 9:07 PM

Sprint Cup driver Kyle Larson tops the speed chart in the Final Practice session for the XFINITY Series Zippo 200 at The Glen at Watkins Glen International.

The No. 42 Crest Chevrolet Camaro driver ran a fast lap of 123.623 mph. No. 12 Joey Logano, No. 33 Paul Menard, No. 3 Ty Dillon and No. 22 Brad Keselowski round out the top-five of the 40 cars out on the track. The No. 40 Toyota driven by Josh Reaume was the slowest in the final practice session.
Aug 7 - 5:55 PM

Kyle Larson snapped a long streak of bad luck in the Crown Royal Jeff Kyle 400 at the Brickyard. His ninth-place finish at Indianapolis Motor Speedway was his first top-10 in six starts and it broke a three-race streak of finishes in the 30s.

Larson needs to keep his streak alive as the series heads to Pocono Raceway. In three previous starts there, he has never finished worse than 11th.
Jul 27 - 9:30 AM

Kyle Larson posted the quickest 10-lap average in the second practice session among the three drivers who went that far. His speed was 174.896 mph during his first 10 laps on the track.

In the first practice session he was the only driver to post at least 10 consecutive laps. Larson finished in the top 10 last year and should be in good shape to back that up with another this week.
Jul 24 - 3:11 PM

Kyle Larson was the only driver to post at least 10 consecutive laps at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Friday morning’s practice session with a speed of 175.313 mph from laps eight through 17.

Most drivers worked on qualification set up, so it is difficult to read too much into Larson’s speed, but he should have a head start on his race setup in the next two practices.
Jul 24 - 11:43 AM

Kyle Larson posted the fastest single fastest time in Friday morning’s practice for the 5-Hour Energy 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway with a speed of 133.708 mph.

Larson was extremely stout at New Hampshire last year with a third in this race and a second in the fall, but he was not a particularly strong qualifier. His best start was an eighth in the fall. If he backs this practice speed up with a strong qualification run, he could be one of this week’s favorites to win.
Jul 17 - 1:00 PM

After posting the fastest single lap in the first practice session on Friday morning—and winning the pole in the process when rain canceled qualification—Kyle Larson backed up his time with another league-leading session in final practice with a speed of 178.412 mph.

The speeds were uniformly slower, but most of the drivers worked on race trim this session. The fastest in the morning were working on qualification trim. Larson is an intriguing mid-cap pick.
