Kyle Larson finished off the 2014 season with a 13th-place finish, which was his 24th top 15 in 36 races, and easily won the Rookie of the Year honors.
Larson did everything expected of him except win a race. Still, he came close three times at Auto Club, New Hampshire, and Kansas with second-place finishes. It is hard to imagine that he will not grace Victory Lane in 2015. Nov 16 - 7:05 PM

If Kyle Larson finishes in the top 15 at Homestead it will be his third consecutive result in that range. He finished seventh at Texas and was 13th at Phoenix last week.

That will also give Larson 15 top-15s in his last 18 attempts, which equals 83 percent of the time. That places him a league with only Joey Logano and Ryan Newman for the most recent top-15s.

Kyle Larson will reunite with former sponsor ParkerStore for a multi-year, multi-series partnership starting with the final NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) event of the season, the Ford EcoBoost 200 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

ParkerStore will serve as a primary and associate sponsor for Larson in a number of races throughout the 2015 NXS season.-Turner Scott Motorsports

In the final corner of the final lap, Kyle Larson got muscled out of the groove and slammed into the wall. He faded from 11th to 13th, but that was still enough to make him the top finishing rookie of the Quicken Loans 500k.

Larson competed in the top five for a while at the end of the race and continues to give notice that he is only one or two adjustments away from winning. He has only one more chance in his rookie season at Homestead and he could win while the Chase contenders worry about one another.

Kyle Larson, Justin Allgaier, and Austin Dillon were all lined up in the Saturday morning practice session for the Quicken Loans Race for Heroes 500k. Larson had the 12th-quickest 10-lap average with Allgaier 13th, and Dillon 14th.

It took too long for the second- and third-place freshman in the standings to catch up to Larson’s performance and make this into a Rookie of the Year battle, but their late season surge makes them interesting fantasy picks.
Nov 8 - 3:18 PM

Kyle Larson posted the second fastest lap in the first practice session for the Quicken Loans Race for Heroes 500k at Phoenix International Raceway with a speed of 141.471 mph to Kevin Harvick’s 141.521.

Larson was expected to run better on the unrestricted, intermediate speedway of Homestead next week than on this one-mile flat track. His fast time makes him a more well-rounded choice for one’s roster and forecasts a solid end to his rookie season.

Kyle Larson ran behind Austin Dillon for most of the AAA Texas 500, but along with his teammate Jamie McMurray he was a beneficiary of a rash of late cautions and two wild restarts at the end of the event. He finished seventh, which was his ninth top-12 in the past 11 races.

With the exception of an accident at Martinsville and the wild card race at Talladega, he has been poised to run the table in the rookie battle since the Chase began. Look for two more strong runs in the last two races of the season.
Nov 2 - 9:50 PM

Kyle Larson has made only three restrictor-plate, superspeedway starts during his career, but so far he has been much more successful at Talladega than Daytona. He finished ninth in the Aaron's 499, but was outside the top 35 in both Daytona events this year.

That trend could continue, but not necessarily because of an innate ability on this track. Larson has a current five-race, top-10 streak and 13 consecutive top-15s to his credit this season. Momentum is a powerful force.

Once again, Kyle Larson had a car that showed it was capable of winning a race. Battling with eventual winner Kevin Harvick in the closing laps, he scraped the wall and damaged his handling slightly, but during the frenetic finish, he rocketed from 14th on the restart to sixth at the checkers in the Bank of America 500. That was his fifth consecutive finish of sixth or better.

This was one of Larson’s best opportunities to win a race in his rookie season because the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks fit his driving style. He will be equally strong at Texas in three weeks and fantasy owners should mark that race on their calendar.
Oct 12 - 12:23 AM

Kyle Larson came up one position shy of winning his first NASCAR Cup race for the third time this season, but he remains one of the best fantasy values with his fifth top-three finish of the season.

Larson is having a rookie season that has been unmatched for several years. To solidify his record as one of the top rookies of all time he needs to win, but he regardless of gaining that last position, he has proven his worth at this level in a very short time.
Oct 5 - 5:54 PM

Kyle Larson recorded the fastest single lap in the final practice session for the Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway. His top speed was 190.295 mph.

Larson also had one of the quickest five- and 10-lap averages in final practice, which gives him the best record during the afternoon. He qualified 18th, but should be able to get to the top 10 with relative ease.
Oct 4 - 3:05 PM

Kyle Larson finished sixth in the AAA 400 at Dover and earned a third consecutive top-10 for the first time in his career. He will try to extend that to four consecutive in the Hollywood Casino 400.

Larson has a good shot at finishing that well because his last two attempts on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks ended in the top 10. He finished eighth in the Oral-B 500 at Atlanta and was third in the MyAFibStory.com 400 at Chicagoland.
Oct 3 - 10:43 AM

For the first time in his career, Kyle Larson earned three consecutive top-10 finishes when he crossed under the checkers sixth in the AAA 400 at Dover International Speedway.

This was also Larson’s sixth consecutive lead lap finish, which was another career best. It is great for rookies to score top-10s, but they are truly great values when they can supplement that with consistency.
Sep 28 - 10:03 PM

For the second time this season, Kyle Larson came up one position short of winning his first Sprint Cup race. He finished second in the Sylvania 300 to Joey Logano and earned his seventh career top-five. His other runner-up finish was earned at Auto Club this March.

Fantasy owners know it is a matter of when, not if he will win and this is the closest he has come in his career. While he has scored back-to-back top-10s on four previous occasions, this is the first time in his career that he posted consecutive top-fives.
Sep 21 - 6:57 PM

Kyle Larson finished third in the MyAFibStory.com 400 at Chicagoland and became the top finishing driver who is not in NASCAR’s Chase for the Championship.

More importantly, this was possibly the closest Larson has come to winning his first Cup race. He was leading with less than 25 laps remaining, but lost the lead on a frantic restart. Larson was the top finishing rookie with his sixth top-five finish and 12th top-10 in 27 races this year.
