#42 KYLE LARSON

LARSON VICTORIOUS AGAIN, THIS TIME WITH A LITTLE PUSH IN MICHIGAN

June 23, 2017 - July 6, 2017
 
Kyle Larson found himself in victory lane for the second time this year after leading a race-high 96 laps.  Larson was running second when the caution came out with 19 to go.  Larson then jumped ahead of Kyle Busch on the restart and held off Chase Elliott to get his second win of the year, and his second win at Michigan. Kyle Larson has seemed to be effective at these two-mile tracks, as all of his wins in the Monster Energy Cup Series have come at two-mile tracks (Auto Club, and Michigan).
               
Chase Elliott was the bridesmaid once again this past Sunday, as he could not chase down Kyle Larson in the closing laps of the FireKeepers Casino 400.  Every race at Michigan so far Chase has finished second coming so close to his first victory in the Monster Energy Cup Series. The good news for Chase is that he still has an opportunity later in the summer to win again at Michigan where he could lock himself into a playoff spot with a win.  It was another good run for Jamie McMurray who got himself another top 5 finish this past Sunday.  The 41-year-old has been overshadowed by his teammate Kyle Larson, but McMurray is having a career year with nine top 10’s already and an average finish of 13.4.  The only year he had a better average finish was all the way back in 2004 when McMurray had an average finish of 13.2.
               
Last week Hendrick Motorsports announced that seven-time Champ Jimmie Johnson has signed a contract extension going through 2020. The decision was a no-brainer as Johnson has already won three races this year, and is only one win away from tying Darrell Waltrip, and Bobby Allison for fourth on the all time wins list. Johnson will be 45 years old when his new contract ends.
