Kyle Larson posted the fastest single lap in Friday’s practice session. His top speed was 192.989 mph. He also had the fastest 10-lap average at 185.537 mph among three drivers who ran long runs.
Larson finished in the top 10 on this track last year as a rookie. He should be considered a favorite to back that up with another top-10. Feb 27 - 2:41 PM

At least 12 cars and drivers will head to the back for the Daytona 500. Trevor Bayne, AJ Allmendinger, Kyle Larson, Johnny Sauter, Ryan Newman, David Ragan, Danica Patrick, Austin Dillon, Bobby Labonte, and Sam Hornish Jr. will roll out back up cars. Regan Smith and Matt Crafton drop to the back because of driver changes.

It should not take them long to get to the front if they have fast cars because they already have company in the form of Denny Hamlin, Brad Keselowski, and Matt Kenseth who simply qualified poorly.

Only five drivers posted laps in the fifth practice session. This is also the final practice before tonight’s Gatorade Duels in Daytona. Kyle Larson posted the fastest lap of 192.699 mph.

Most of the drivers who posted any laps at all sustained some damage in an earlier incident and were shaking their machinery down. Larson was followed by Cole Whitt, Michael Annett, JJ Yeley, and Jeb Burton.

Very little is guaranteed in NASCAR, but if Kyle Larson stays out of trouble during the Daytona 500, he should easily have a career best finish this week. Last year he was 38th in the 500 and 36th in the Coke Zero 400.

Both races were marked by crash damage and are not indicative of his strength. Larson scored one top-10 at Talladega last year, so he knows how to stay out of trouble on plate tracks.

Kyle Larson was competing in his first Sprint Unlimited and as a result, he scored his best result in this race. Finishing fifth, he completed a sweep of the top-five by drivers recording their best-ever results.

Last year Larson had difficulty on the 2.5-mile restrictor-plate, superspeedway so this is an encouraging sign. He will perform better in the Daytona 500 as well and could be a surprise contender for a top-10 in the longer race.

Today’s race marked the sixth Rolex 24 At Daytona win for Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates (CGRFS) in just 12 attempts.

CGRFS now holds the record for most Rolex 24 At Daytona wins in the 53-year history of the race (2006, 2007, 2008, 2011, 2013, 2015) – recently tied with Brumos Racing. This is the second Rolex 24 win for the No. 02 car (2006, 2015). With his first win, Jamie McMurray joined AJ Foyt and Mario Andretti as the only drivers to win the Daytona 500 and the Rolex 24 At Daytona. This marked the second Rolex 24 At Daytona win for Scott Dixon (2006, 2015), and the first for Tony Kanaan in just his second start with CGRFS. This marked the first Rolex 24 At Daytona win for Kyle Larson in just his second Rolex 24 start.-Chip Ganassi Racing

A three-way battle between NASCAR’s Kyle Larson and dirt-track veterans Danny Lasoski and Stevie Smith ended in favor of the Sprint Cup rookie of the year as he won the A-Main on Night 2 of the Winter Heat Sprint Car Showdown at Cocopah (Ariz.) Speedway.

Larson, whose journey to NASCAR’s top level began with success in the sprint car ranks, qualified third for the feature but had to fight hard to earn the win on Saturday night. He first jumped to P1 shortly after the halfway point of the 30-lap race, when leader Aaron Reutzel’s top wing appeared to buckle and forced him to stop. With three to go, Larson took control but Smith remained in striking distance and on the white-flag lap, he pulled one last slide-job on the inside. But, riding the cushion, Larson was able to power past Smith in the final turn and beat him to the stripe.

A pair of NASCAR Sprint Cup Series stars and the "King of the Outlaws" will serve as marquee names for this week’s inaugural running of the Winter Heat Sprint Car Showdown in Arizona.

Hendrick Motorsports veteran Kasey Kahne, reigning Sprint Cup rookie of the year Kyle Larson, and World of Outlaws icon Steve Kinser will be among those racing at the Cocopah Speedway. The five-night run begins tomorrow and Saturday, then resumes next Tuesday (Jan. 6), and then closes out next Friday and Saturday (Jan. 9-10). Due to testing commitments with Chip Ganassi Racing’s Rolex 24 program at Daytona International Speedway, Larson will only be competing on three of the five days (tomorrow, Saturday, and next Tuesday). He’ll be racing for the sprint car squad he co-owns, Larson Marks Racing, with his little Plan B Sales/Target-backed beauty.

Chip Ganassi and Harry Scott, Jr. announced today that they have joined forces to field a one-car NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) entry beginning in 2015.

The entry will be run from the Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates team shop in Concord, NC and will race under the team name, HScott Motorsports with Chip Ganassi. The HScott Motorsports with Chip Ganassi No. 42 Chevrolet Camaro entry will feature a driver line-up combination of at least 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) Rookie of the Year Kyle Larson, along with 2014 NASCAR XFINITY (NXS) rookie Dylan Kwasniewski.-Chip Ganassi Racing

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.

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.

After originally partnering with Larson when he raced midget cars in California, ParkerStore will be the primary sponsor of the No. 42 NCWTS Turner Scott Motorsports entry driven by Larson at Homestead and will be on board the No. 42 NASCAR XFINITY Series entry in 2015. 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.

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.
