Larson takes advantage of late restart for first Cup victory

Larson takes advantage of late restart for first Cup victory

First, it was Larson's first Cup victory, coming in the 99th start of his career.

This was his 99th race in Sprint Cup, and Larson became the third first-time victor of the weekend for all three of NASCAR's national traveling series. Chris Buescher of Front Row Motorsports is in solid position to earn a Chase berth. "For the second time this has happened here".

Today, in "is someone cutting onions nearby?" news, Kyle Larson opted to dedicate his first NASCAR Sprint Cup win to his the family of racer and friend Bryan Clauson. “This one was for Bryan Clauson. We stayed out on those really long runs and kept gaining spots, climbed all the way from 18th to fourth or fifth there, which was really, really good. We love you guys. We parked it for him, so that's really cool. Shortly after he celebrated his victory, Clauson's fiancée Lauren Stewart tweeted her gratitude and congratulations. Obviously I didn't do a very good job of that here both trips.

"Watkins Glen, knowing that morning we didn't get any good news, that was really tough getting in the vehicle there", said Larson.

"We went to Kroger and got some stuff for the race. I'm still at a loss for words". Is it possible that he will become the centerpiece to a Ganassi effort to break into NASCAR's elite now that extra financing is in place from Kauffman in addition to the backing of Felix Sabates? This was the team's first win since Jamie McMurray's victory at Talladega in 2013.

"Well, he hung in there with our team", vehicle owner Chip Ganassi said. "We were building. We've been building over the years. I can't tell you how much respect I have for the people on the team that do the work, that hung in there". We got Jamie in there previous year and now we got Kyle in there. "It's like golf. We're just so glad to be here". By the second lap he went from 14th to 10th.




Filling in for the injured Dale Earnhardt Jr. He was in sixth place at the time - but quickly dropped outside the top 30 after the engine stopped performing at full strength. It lasted five laps.

For the most part, the 400-mile race that had only four caution flags featured cars strung out around the 2-mile track, and there were few battles for the lead. Maybe he's going to hit the Chase on an uptick. That required him to slowly drive around the track to pit road, which cost him a lap in the process. He led 24 of the last 25 laps and brought home the No. 2 Chevy to victory lane. But that's only if Buescher stays in the top 30, which is in doubt after Sunday.

Still, it was one of the most consistently strong weekends the No. 21 team has this season from start to finish.

"It is 20 dollars a day", Dunn said. He was lapped roughly halfway through the race and was never a contender.

In the truck series, Moffitt was in third when the drivers crossed the start-finish line for the last lap of the race.

"This was one of our best races since we've been together", Wood said.
