Kyle Larson was the highest finishing rookie in the Brickyard 400. He finished seventh after starting 15th.
Larson gained one position in the standings, but he stands only seven markers above the current cutoff to make the race on points. Competition for top-10s will continue to be fierce among the drivers who are winless thus far in 2014 and that should motivate Larson to run well in the next six regular season races.

Kyle Larson posted the fastest single lap among the rookie class in final practice for the Crown Royal 400 on Saturday. His top speed was 187.013 mph, which placed him eighth on that grid.

Larson was one of this week’s dark horse choices to win his first race at Indy and he has not done anything to cause fantasy owners to rethink that position. Even if he fails to find Victory Lane, he will be a good value if he can achieve a top-10 finish.

Kyle Larson has at least a dark horse’s chance to record his first Cup victory at Indy. With Juan Pablo Montoya behind the wheel of the No. 42 Chip Ganassi Racing ride they finished second in 2007 and Larson is coming off a solid top-five last week on another flat track in New Hampshire.

In recent seasons, Indianapolis Motor Speedway has played host to some dark horse victories. Paul Menard’s fuel mileage win in 2011 as well as Ryan Newman’s triumph last year were unexpected before those weekend activities commenced.

Nashville-based Big Machine Records continues their partnership with Chip Ganassi Racing Teams (CGRT), which will see the label as the primary sponsor on Kyle Larson’s No. 42 Chevrolet Camaro as he races for Turner Scott Motorsports in the NASCAR Nationwide Series Lilly Diabetes 250 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Larson’s car will highlight Big Machine’s forthcoming release of NASHVILLE OUTLAWS, which features some of country music’s biggest stars like Florida Georgia Line, Rascal Flatts, Justin Moore, Darius Rucker, LeAnn Rimes and more covering 15 of rock’s most well-known songs from one of rock’s most iconic bands.-Chip Ganassi Racing

Kyle Larson will return to a dirt track this week when he once again competes in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) Mudsummer Classic at Eldora Speedway.

Larson will be racing in the No. 32 Glad Chevrolet Silverado for Turner Scott Motorsports, and will be looking to improve upon last year’s runner-up finish. The NCWTS race will mark the fifth racing series in which Larson has raced this year. In addition to being a regular in the NSCS, he also races all companion NASCAR Nationwide Series events, and has raced in one ARCA and one NASCAR K&N Pro Series West event. Larson has top-five finishes in each series in which he has raced this year, and has a win in each series except the NSCS, where his highest finish to date is second.-Chip Ganassi Racing

Kyle Larson has been the strongest rookie by a wide margin in 2014 with four top-fives and another four top-10s. He leads the rookie standings over Austin Dillon by a score of 215 to 187 points.

No one expected this kind of output from Larson at the beginning of the year, but players have rapidly adjusted to make him one of the most popular drivers in the fantasy field. In the final 17 races, if he fails to find Victory Lane, his season might be classified as a minor disappointment. His third-place finish at New Hampshire stopped a three-race skid in which he finished outside the top 25 each time and he is safe to place on one’s roster again.

In the Camping World RV Sales 301, Kyle Larson narrowly missed matching his career-best finish. With a dramatic green-white-checkered finish, he crossed under the checkers third behind Brad Keselowski and Kyle Busch. His best career finish is second in this March’s Auto Club 400. This was his fourth top-five in 2014.

More importantly, Larson ended a three-race slide that saw him finish 28th at Sonoma, 40th at Kentucky, and 36th at Daytona. His third-place finish elevated him to 14th in the standings and puts him back in Chase contention based on points. With 11 unique winners this year, only five positions remain open for drivers near the top of the points’ standings.
