Kyle Larson described road racing as a similar trait to racing on dirt. The way and finesse you have to drive around Sonoma and Watkins Glen reminds him of how to get around places like Eldora, Knoxville and other dirt tracks around the nation. He’s showing he’s right in that assessment.

Larson Surprisingly Struggling This Weekend In Michigan

Heading into this weekend’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at the Michigan International Speedway, everyone assumed that Kyle Larson and Chip Ganassi Racing would be the ones to beat. Larson, has been dominant in his four career Cup Series starts at Michigan. He’s won three of them, including all consecutively. His worst Cup finish on the 2-mile, D-Shaped oval is third. Back in Fontana, a track like Michigan, Larson brought his No. 42 Chevrolet home runner-up. Last weekend in Pocono, he finished second again. He heads to Michigan on the…

Michigan Can Be Ganassi’s Strength This Weekend

Lets be frank here, the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season hasn’t been the kindest to Chip Ganassi Racing. Kyle Larson and Jamie McMurray have yet to visit victory lane through the first 14 races as the Larson has five finishes of 16th or worse and McMurray with 11. But, all that could change in Sunday’s race at the Michigan International Speedway. While Chevrolet has been down in power all season long, most credit of those struggles going to the new car, this could be the week that one…

Truex, Larson Top 2 To Watch In Sunday’s AAA 400 Drive For Austim (2 p.m. ET/FS1/MRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio)

While the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season has been dominated by Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch, this weekend’s race at Dover may see two newer drivers in the mix for the win. Both Kyle Larson and Martin Truex Jr. have been up-and-down as far as results go this season. But, those finishes have been up recently at Dover. That’s why I can see both being in the hunt to win Sunday’s AAA 400 Drive For Autism (2 p.m. ET/FS1/MRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio). Lets take Larson for example. He finished…

Busch, Harvick, Truex Leaps and Bounds Ahead Of Everyone Else In 2018

Parity is normally high in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. We’d threaten to have 16 winners heading into the playoffs each of the last two years.

The problem is, no one has enough speed to catch them.…

Chip Ganassi Racing Could See Both Cars Strong This Weekend in Richmond

The start to the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season has been quiet for both Chip Ganassi Racing drivers. Neither are in the top five of the Cup points standings, as both Kyle Larson and his teammate Jamie McMurray has been further off in 2018 than they were in 2017. McMurray, didn’t have a top 15 finish in the first six races to the season. He did finish third though at Texas and should be stronger this weekend at the Richmond Raceway. The Missouri native has five top seven…

Truex/Larson/Keselowski Could Struggle Again This Weekend In Bristol

Last weekend in Texas, Martin Truex Jr., Kyle Larson and Brad Keselowski had miserable days. All three crashed out of the race and suffered their worst days of the year.

He saw his 13 race top 10 streak on 1.5-mile tracks end with a crash at the end of the first stage of the race last Sunday. At Bristol, he has an average finishing position…
