Kyle Larson’s Chevrolet failed to clear inspection and as a result he did not make a qualification lap. He will line up at the tail end of the field for the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Only he and Corey LaJoie failed to clear inspection this week, so Larson has a lot of cars ahead of him. The good news here is that he is going to make up a ton of place-differential points en route to a top-10 finish. May 25 - 7:38 PM

Kyle Larson hit the wall hard exiting turn two during Thursday’s practice for the Coke 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway and appeared to do fairly major damage to his Chevrolet.

The car just shot up the track and took a hard lick on the right rear tire. This might necessitate the rolling out of a backup. He was seven minutes from the end of the session.

Kyle Larson made a dramatic pass on Jimmie Johnson in the final lap of the All-star race and finished second.

Larson was the class of the field most of the evening, but he came out of the pits fifth and that was just too much room to overcome.

Kyle Larson has made one previous start in the All-star race and he is almost certain to finish better this year than last.

Larson advanced into the race with a segment win in the Open, but he crashed a few laps short of the checkers and finished 16th.

With a speed of 143.839 mph, Kyle Larson won the pole for Saturday night’s All-star race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

The All-star race feature old-style pit stops with no speed limit—and it is notable that one of NASCAR’s throwback racers won the pole. Similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks are also kind to this Young Gun, so he should be considered a threat to win Saturday night’s exhibition race.

Kyle Larson finished sixth in the GoBowling.com 400 at Kansas Speedway, which was his fourth consecutive top-10 on one of the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks.

Larson had an adventurous weekend. He was forced to roll out a backup after crashing in final practice and slapped the wall a couple of times during the race. A top-five would have been nice, but Larson’s fantasy owners should feel pretty pleased with his sixth.

Kyle Larson got loose in turns two and three early in the second practice session for the GoBowling.com 400 at Kansas Speedway and tagged the wall. The damage to his car was fairly significant.

Kyle Larson posted the fastest single lap in practice for the Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond International Raceway with a speed of 119.074 mph.

He was not happy in Happy Hour, however; Larson complained of a loose condition throughout the session and never seemed to get rid of it.

Larson accomplished this by going where the competition was not. He ran the high line for most of the weekend and found an advantage. Ironically, his chance at earning his first career top-five on this track ended when he ran up on the lapped car of Derrike Cope in the closing laps.
