With a lap of 183.404 mph, Kyle Larson failed to advance to the second round of qualification in the Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and will roll off the grid 25th.
Larson has had to come from the back of the pack in the last two weeks—once because of a penalty and once when he did not clear inspection. This is his first time to qualify badly, which should cause some concern for fantasy owners. Jul 22 - 6:54 PM

Kyle Larson finished second in the Overton's 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

This was the second consecutive week and the seventh time this season that he finished second. While these runner-up finishes are great for fantasy players, the lack of bonus points earned could make a big difference once the playoffs roll around.

Kyle Larson posted the second fastest lap in the second practice session for the Overton's 301 at New Hampshire International Speedway with a speed of 131.333 mph. That was .001 seconds slower than Martin Truex Jr.

Unfortunately, Larson will not be able to use his speed early because his qualification time was disallowed and he has to fall to the back of the pack to start the race. Larson should be able to make his way to the front, however.

Kyle Larson’s No. 42 car failed post-qualification inspection and his pole-winning speed of 133.324 mph was disallowed. He will start shotgun on the field. That will elevate Truex to the pole for the Overton's 301 at New Hamsphire International Raceway.

Last week, Larson also started dead last when he failed to get through inspection. He drove through the field and finished second only to have his result ruled encumbered. As teams push the envelope, they step over the line, but rarely does it happen with this level of repetition. Since his time was disallowed, he will officially start 39th and his place differential will be based on that.

Kyle Larson and Martin Truex Jr. posted the two fastest speeds in Friday’s practice session for the Overton's 301 at New Hampshire International Speedway before going out to qualify in those same positions.

These two drivers seem to be joined at the hip. The championship contenders will have to find a way to slow them down if they want to even advance to the final round.

Kyle Larson posted a lap of 133.324 mph in the final round of qualification and won the pole for Sunday Overton’s 301.

Notably, last week Larson failed to make his way through inspection and rolled off the grid dead last. He fought his way to the front and finished second, so this week should be a little easier.

In addition to driving his regular No. 42 Chevrolet SS in Sunday's Cup Series Overton's 301, Kyle Larson will pilot the No. 42 ENEOS Chevrolet Camaro in the NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) Overton's 200 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Saturday.

Larson makes his eighth XFINITY Series start of 2017 and first since Pocono last month. This is his first XFINITY Series start at NHMS since 2014, where he started fourth and finished fourth. He scored a win in the K&N Pro Series East back in 2012, his championship season. Following last week's race, the No. 42 team sits third in the XFINITY Series owner's standings.-Chip Ganassi Racing

NASCAR handed out an L1-level penalty to the No. 42 Chip Ganassi Racing team of Kyle Larson following Saturday’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at Kentucky Speedway.

The penalty was for rear brake cooling assembly that didn’t meet standards, and Larson’s second-place finish was ruled encumbered. In addition, crew chief Chad Johnston was fined $75,000 and suspended for three Monster Energy Series races, and the team was assessed with the loss of 35 driver points and 35 owner points. Larson held a one-point lead over Martin Truex Jr. in the driver standings before the penalty, which will knock him down to second place, 34 points behind

Kyle Larson started shotgun on the field and raced his way to second in the Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway.

Larson never managed to lead a lap so he was unable to earn as many points as either Martin Truex Jr. or Kyle Busch, but he was one of the top drivers. Larson also had to come from the back a second time when he was caught speeding on pit road.
Jul 8 - 11:03 PM

Kyle Larson was unable to clear inspection and as a result did not post a speed in qualification. He will start on the last row for the Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway.

This automatically makes Larson a great value in games that offer place-differential points. He was fast in practice and should easily challenge for a top-five.
Jul 7 - 6:35 PM

Kyle Larson posted the fastest single lap in final practice for the Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway with a speed of 188.186 mph.

Single lap speed has not exactly been Larson’s problem at Kentucky. He qualified sixth in 2014 and started on the pole in 2015 after posting the fastest speed in practice. He’s been crash prone on this course, however, with two accidents in three starts. He must stay out of trouble Saturday night.

Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series regular Kyle Larson crossed a victory off of his bucket list Sunday night at Path Valley Speedway, winning night three of Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek in front of a standing-room-only crowd.

Tyler Walker and Brock Zearfoss led the 24-car field to the initial green flag for the 40-lap main event, and right from the drop of the green, Zearfoss was the man in charge as Walker scattered and fell back to fifth-place. Zearfoss caught lap traffic on lap five as fourth-starting Larson began to put pressure on his rear bumper. Larson was able to take advantage of the lapped traffic and drove his car through multiple racing lanes to slide by Zearfoss for the lead on lap seven.
Jul 3 - 2:00 PM

Kyle Larson continues to dominate racing. He posted a lap of 95.295 mph and won the pole for Sunday’s Toyota / Save Mart 350 at Sonoma Raceway.

Larson has not been consistently strong on road courses, but after winning Michigan International Speedway last week and two sprint car races on Monday and Tuesday, plus another World of Outlaws Sprint Car race last week, it’s impossible to discount the importance of momentum.
Jun 24 - 3:37 PM

Kyle Larson posted the fastest single lap in final practice for the Toyota / Save Mart 350 at Sonoma Raceway with a speed of 94.389 mph.

Larson is not the first driver one thinks of on road courses, but he does have a fourth at Watkins Glen International in his rookie season. He finished in the top 15 in three consecutive races, so he might be a pleasant surprise.

Kyle Larson took the lead late in the FireKeepers Casino 400 at Michigan International Speedway tom win his third career race.

All three of Larson’s victories have come on two-mile tracks with last August’s win at Michigan, this spring at Auto Club Speedway, and now. Larson was one of our pre-race favorites and should be on every player’s radar screen the next time the series rolls onto this track.
