    Pre Race: NASCAR Cup Championship

    Yes, your recollection is correct. I rewatched the race the other day and he had no trouble just driving thru the field. And he actually drove thru the field 3 times because he started in the back due to failing inspection and was p9 by the competition caution. Then he had 2 speeding penalties...

    Pre Race: NASCAR Cup Championship

    Right, once they fixed the early issues with his car, Truex was lights out later in the race. So he definitely has to be confident going into this race. I was just saying Larson was a lot better in that race than I recalled. I really don't see how anyone is really the favorite. You could make...

    Pre Race: NASCAR Cup Championship

    My recollection was that Larson was pretty good at Phoenix in the spring race, but just don't get the finish they should have. So I went back and rewatched the race. Larson had to start at the back of the field and was 9th by lap 36, but had yellow flag pit road speeding penalty and had to go...

    Alan Kulwicki could do that and he won a championship, but I don't think there will ever be a driver like that again. Sent from my Pixel 5 using Tapatalk

    Larson said the handling wasn't good since the last pit stop. Daniels backed out the changes from that stop. Car was a lot better earlier in the race.

    Dale Earnhardt is the only driver to accomplish that, in 1987. However, in 1998-99, Gordon won 4 races during the 1998 season, then the last 2 races of that season, then the first race at Daytona in 1999. https://m.nascar.com/gallery/drivers-with-three-consecutive-wins-in-nascar-history/#photo-21

    NBC and Dish contract dispute has the channel down here. So trying to figure out another way to watch, let me know if anyone has any tips. It's on NBC sports online, but can't verify with my provider because of the Dish dispute, so can only watch for 45 minute preview

    Kyle Larson Appreciation Thread

    Larson does have more starts than Chase, and Larson had 12 wins to Chase 13. Larson 254 starts and 122 top 10, 214 and 113 for Chase. Obviously Larson didn't have the same level equipment/team at CGR as you pointed out. He ended up with the most wins of any driver all time at CGR with 6. About 3...

    Regarding Elliott holding up Harvick so Larson could catch him, Logano did the exact same thing to Larson in an earlier race so Hamlin could catch Larson. It isn't like it's the first time a teammate helped another teammate. Won't be the last. Sent from my Pixel 5 using Tapatalk

    Not just 5 points, 5 playoff points which carry thru all the rounds of the playoffs. That's equal to another regular season victory or 5 stage wins. Those are valuable points. We have seen drivers miss advancing to next round by just 1 point.

    Factoid: Larson became the first driver to win a feature with both WoO Late Model and WoO Sprint Cars, when he won the crown jewel Prairie Dirt Classic earlier this month. Only 14 drivers have ever actually raced in both series, the list includes some dirt legends, like Tony Stewart, Dave...

    She's right though. Some people don't realize that the recording of team comms included a channel between CC and spotter that the driver doesn't hear, and a separate channel that the driver is on. When listening to the scanner you can hear to both but there driver can't. So 2 things can be...

    I don't think 9 has lost mojo on the RC but I'll argue that Larson wins COTA if it doesn't start raining. Chase would have had to pit. But turned out to be a good strategy. Sent from my Pixel 5 using Tapatalk

    Cup RACE thread --- Pocono, No. 2

    Cliff Daniels made a really good strategy call. Kyle was mired in traffic back in like 24th following the long stop to fix nose damage. Daniels called Kyle in to pit under green flag and put on 2 tires and enough fuel to get to the end of stage 2. Kyle came out at the tail end of lead lap just 8...

    Regardless of the design, it's just great to see some other sponsors willing to buy in to Larson. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
