Larson gets second win of season, vows to 'continue building' on success

Two weeks ago at Dover, Kyle Larson took a painful master class in restarts from Professor Jimmie Johnson.

"Cars 3" will likely finish No. 1 in the box office over the weekend, on track to for a $60 million debut according to reports.

Kyle Larson took control on a restart with five laps remaining and raced to his second NASCAR Cup Series victory of the season, holding off Chase Elliott on Sunday at Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn, Michigan.

Larson started from the pole, led the most laps and was able to hold the lead throughout three restarts over the last 20 laps to give himself a Father's Day present.

On lap 36, Martin Truex Jr. passed Larson and gained the lead for the first time in the race and went on to win the first stage by over four seconds.

Martin Truex won the first two stages of the race but finished sixth, ceding the points lead to Larson.

Truex Jr., the king of stage racing led the field to green for the stage-three restart and was joined by No. 18 Kyle Busch. On lap 155, Larson restarted on the outside lane which proved to be huge as he could pass several cars after the inside laners couldn't get up to full speed.

Despite that shift, however, administration officials have not made clear the full objectives of US policy or its limits. In November, the SDF began its military offensive, closing in on Raqqa in areas north and east of the Euphrates River.

"I think, restarted third or fifth that time and got loose off of (turn) two, and I got freight-trained down the backstretch", Larson said. "So, I've really got to thank him a ton".

"We had a fast auto, and think we were going to win it either way, but when it came down to experience at the end, I'll take him". "That killed us. Just wrong lane on the restart every single time all day long and couldn't use the best vehicle to win". "He just had enough air down there to get to the side of us, and it was just a race to the line after that". We had some fast cars through that month, didn't have very good results to show for it. It was cool to win it.

"Yeah, just a long day overall", said Jones, a native of Byron, Mich. My dad is here today, too.

"I'm looking forward to celebrating with him". Kyle Larson isn't a superstar yet, but with a few more days like MI, he may well be on his way. He also won at Fontana on March 26. "All in all, it's a good season so far and we'll continue building on what we've got". This is our second Cup win of the year, but we've had six second place finishes. For his career, Elliott has finished second or third on eight occasions.

Joey Logano finished third in the No. 22 Shell Pennzoil Ford for Team Penske. "I thought we way improved from where we were a year ago, as far as those late-race restarts go, and was able to hang with them and, really, just kind of rely on the guy behind you". Proud of the effort. "We ended last year pretty good, but we started this year even better". "I know I led a lot of laps, [but it] seemed like whenever he wanted to get the lead, he hit a nitro button and would cruise up to the lead, then check out". I wasn't able to stay attached to the 42.

Chase Elliott, who restarted on the inside in second for the final restart, had to settle for second for the third consecutive MI race, including the second consecutive one behind Larson. "Turning the momentum a bit and bringing home a solid top-five and change things".

Denny Hamlin finished fourth and Jamie McMurray was fifth. He's followed by Kevin Harvick (-132), Chase Elliott (-162) and Brad Keselowski (-164).
