After finishing second three times in a row and third or better in five of his last six attempts, Kyle Larson finally got everything right and won the Auto Club 400.
Larson was among the top 10 all afternoon, but that has been the case on several occasions this year. At Auto Club Speedway, he had the right pit stop strategy, did not make a mistake on a restart, and was generally flawless. This is his second victory and his second consecutive win on a two-mile track. Mar 26 - 6:54 PM

Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series regular Kyle Larson, driving the No. 42 ENEOS Chevrolet Camaro, won the Service King 300, his sixth victory in 94 NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) races.

This is his first victory and third top-10 NXS finish in 2017. It is his second victory and fifth top-10 finish in five NXS races at Auto Club Speedway (ACS). Cup driver Joey Logano (second) posted his ninth top-10 finish in nine NXS races at ACS and his second top-10 NXS finish in 2017. Cup driver Kyle Busch (third) posted his 15th top-10 finish in 18 NXS races at ACS. William Byron (fifth) was the highest finishing rookie. Elliott Sadler (finished seventh) leads the point standings by 17 points over William Byron.

With a lap of 187.047 mph, Kyle Larson won the pole for the Auto Club 400 and will lead the field on Sunday.

This is Larson’s second career pole and the fourth time he will lead the field to green. He won the pole at Pocono Raceway in August 2014. He was awarded the top spot at Richmond International Raceway that spring and Kentucky Speedway in 2015. His best finish after starting first was 11th at Pocono.

Kyle Larson posted the fastest single lap in the first practice session for the Auto Club 400 with a speed of 189.071 mph.

That was 6/10ths of a second faster than second-place Denny Hamlin’s 188.462 as most drivers spent the majority of time working on qualification trim. Larson suffered crash damage last year in the Auto Club 400, but he has a great record on two-mile tracks overall and should be considered a favorite this week. Larson’s best previous qualification effort at Auto Club Speedway was a fifth in 2015.

In addition to driving his regular No. 42 Chevrolet SS in Sunday's Cup Series Auto Club 400, Kyle Larson will pilot the No. 42 ENEOS Chevrolet Camaro in the NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) Service King 300 at Auto Club Speedway (ACS) on Saturday.

He enters Saturday's race as the 2014 winner at ACS, his first career NXS victory. In four previous starts at ACS, he has finished no worse than eighth (average finish of 5.5). Larson has made two NXS starts in 2017 (Atlanta, finished 3rd and Las Vegas, finished 2nd).

Kyle Larson had another excellent shot to win a Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race, but he was bumped by Ricky Stenhouse Jr. on the final restart and did not have enough momentum to catch Ryan Newman. Larson finished second in the Camping World 500 at Phoenix International Raceway.

Larson and his spotter are still learning what it takes to win. The driver reported he was cleared to change lanes, but someone misjudged the run by the No. 17. This was the fifth time in the last six races that Larson finished either second or third.

Kyle Larson’s best Phoenix International Raceway result came in his most recent attempt: He finished third in last fall’s Can-Am 500.

He qualified on the outside pole for that race and lost one place-differential point. In fact, Larson has finished worse than he qualified in every race he has started on this track, including a 21st from sixth in 2015.
Mar 18 - 2:37 PM

With a worst finish of 17th at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in July, Kyle Larson almost swept the top 15 on short, flat tracks last year.

He also had three top-five finishes, one of which was a third at Phoenix International Raceway in the fall. His average result in eight races on this track type was a 9.5 and that makes him one of the best values in any game this week.
Mar 17 - 7:29 PM

Kyle Larson posted the second-fastest time in the first practice session at Phoenix International Raceway with a speed of 136.472 mph. He was .121 seconds slower than Chase Elliott.

It is notable that these two drivers topped the speed chart this week because they have been the most consistently fast frontrunners in the first three races of 2017. The only thing that will keep them from challenging for a top-five is an on track incident, mistake in the pits, or mechanical failure.

For the fourth time in the last five races, Kyle Larson finished in the top-three. He was second in the Kobalt 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway after starting fifth.

Larson finished third at Phoenix International Raceway last fall, was second at Homestead-Miami Speedway, got passed for the lead with a lap to go at Daytona International Speedway, and was second last week at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Larson is not accumulating victories, but he is amassing maximum points.
Mar 12 - 7:20 PM

Kyle Larson posted the second fastest lap in Saturday morning’s practice session for the Kobalt 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway with a speed of 188.818 mph.

That put him behind Chase Elliott by a wide margin. Larson’s lap time was .402 seconds slower than the No. 24’s, which equates to 2.69 miles per hour. Larson starts seven spots ahead of Elliott in Sunday’s race and by the time they find one another on the track, the speeds should level.

In addition to driving his regular No. 42 Chevrolet SS in Sunday's Cup Series Kobalt 400, Kyle Larson will pilot the No. 42 CreditOne Chevrolet Camaro in the NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) Boyd Gaming 300 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway (LVMS) on Saturday.

Larson makes his third XFINITY Series start at LVMS on Saturday. This will be his first NXS start at the 1.5-mile speedway since 2014. He scored his best starting position of fourth and finish of third in 2014 as well.-Chip Ganassi Racing

Kyle Larson inherited the lead before the final restart when Kevin Harvick was busted for speeding, but he slipped late and finished the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 in Atlanta Motor Speedway second.

He gave up the bottom lane in the final laps when most of the leaders had been hugging the yellow line. That allowed Brad Keselowski to pass him. In his post-race interview, Larson explained that he was adjusting to how Keselowski had raced him most of the afternoon; the No. 2 had been able to pass him on the outside frequently. Larson failed to win, but he scored his seventh career runner-up.

Kyle Larson scored a top-10 in his first Atlanta Motor Speedway attempt in 2014, but he has failed to crack the top 25 in his last two efforts

Larson has lost laps in each of his last two starts. If he can avoid that fate this weekend, he should be able to adjust and finish near the front of the pack. Larson qualified eighth for this week’s race, but he started sixth in 2015 before finishing 26th.
Mar 4 - 1:06 PM

Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series regular Kyle Larson will make his fifth NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) at Atlanta Motor Speedway (AMS) on Saturday driving the No. 42 Chevrolet Camaro.

In four previous starts at the 1.5-mile speedway, he has three top-five and four top-10 finishes. Larson finished runner-up in last year's Rinnai 250.-Chip Ganassi Racing
