Larson wins yet again as Hendrick Motorsports continues dominant season

Kyle Larson kept up his sensational winning streak by notching a fourth race victory in succession, leading 264 of the 300 laps to take the win at Nashville Superspeedway.

“I can’t say enough about everybody at Hendrick Motorsports,, Valvoline, and thanks to everybody who has been a part of this team this year,” Larson said. “I just hope we can keep it going.”

Rolling off the grid in fifth, Larson was into the lead by the sixth lap following a caution for an early accident. Pitting from the lead on lap 43, Larson rejoined the lead in second and after pitting for a fourth caution, he eventually finished the stage third.

From then on, it became something of the Kyle Larson show, the supremely confident Californian claiming a 12th stage win of the year after leading for the majority. Staying out front as the final stage began, Larson pitted when another caution fell on lap 218 and rejoined third.

But with his father watching on Larson would not be denied on this Father’s Day, reclaiming the lead to win from Ross Chastain as Hendrick Motorsports teammate William Byron came home third.

“Our pit crew did an awesome job again. That No. 1 pit stall helps a bunch, too. This crowd is awesome,” added Larson as quoted by

“I was going to do something here. I looked down there, ‘Man, there’s a lot of fans down there, too. I need to go to the end,’ he said. “We had enough rubber and enough fuel left over to do a good burnout at the end.”

It is now quite the run from Hendrick Motorsports, whose five race wins in succession is the most they have captured in a season since 2014 and the fourth time in the organisation’s history. The team has finished in the top two in every race since May 9 and won every race since May 16.
