Kyle Larson finished fifth at Chicagoland to help pad his points in the standings.

Larson entered the race second in the points with a large enough lead over 12th not to worry about advancing to round two. But like Truex, he wants to prove that he can advance with wins instead of needing the bonus points. He continues to be one of the best fantasy values in all NASCAR games.

Kyle Larson posted the fastest single lap in the first practice session for the Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway with a speed of 173.064 mph.

Top speed matters at Darlington, just like it does everywhere else. But more important is a driver’s ability to manage his tire wear even after a repave like this track underwent in 2008. Fortunately, Larson had the second-quickest, 10-lap average.

Kyle Larson won his third consecutive race at Michigan International Speedway in the Pure Michigan 400 on Sunday.

Larson will line up second, but he will probably not stay there. In three previous attempts on this track, he has gotten progressively worse each time with a 29th last year. He will cost place-differential points and should be avoided this week.

Kyle Larson was .035 seconds slower than Matt Kenseth in the first practice session for the Overton’s 400 at Pocono Raceway with a speed of 175.957 mph.

Speed has not been Larson’s issue for most of the year, but he needs to learn how to close the deal and stay out of trouble. He will be a good value, but not an exceptional one since he is priced so high in salary cap games.

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.

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.
