Larson ends two-year skid with Dover playoff win

Kyle Larson flashes superstar potential with NASCAR playoff win at Dover

Kyle Larson flashes superstar potential with NASCAR playoff win at Dover

"I hope there's another one in our future, especially in the next round".

NASCAR playoff drivers took the top six spots: Truex was second, followed by Alex Bowman, Kevin Harvick, Hamlin and Kyle Busch.

"Yeah I just had an engine failure of some sort", Elliott said.

Larson, who is the 37th different driver to win a NASCAR Cup Series race at Dover, topped Truex by 1.578 seconds, with fellow championship contenders Alex Bowman, Kevin Harvick and pole victor Denny Hamlin completing the top five.

Larson's win puts him at fifth in the standings overall, but he only has 11 playoff points. Larson escaped the first round without any serious drama and can now head to treacherous Talladega and then Kansas to end the second round without any serious concerns.

Larson qualified second, ranked first in best average over 10 consecutive laps in Friday's final practice and his career average finish of 8.0 at Dover is better than every other driver in the field except Chase Elliott (4.4 career average finish at Dover) and Daniel Suarez (7.6). I could still end up on my lid next week, but it's not going to matter after this win. "I've been close a number of times, so to get a golden Monster [Trophy] is going to be pretty sweet". Larson counted 92 races in 2011 and 123 races in 2012 and continued to race in the dirt even when he landed his ride with Ganassi. Stewart in turn guaranteed Larson, who is half Japanese, would be the next big thing in NASCAR.

Effects Of Global Economic Slowdown "More Pronounced" In India
The global economy is now in a synchronized slowdown. "Global trade growth has come to a near standstill", she said. The situation is a stark contrast from two years ago, before the U.S.

After a round of green-flag pit stops between Laps 320-330, Larson held a 6.5-second lead over Truex, who steadily narrowed the gap as the duo navigated lapped traffic, but couldn't get close enough to challenge.

Here's what else happened at Dover. Logano failed to start the race because of a broken axle on the No. 22 Ford. Joey Logano had to pit before the green flag dropped to start the race with a mechanical issue and returned nearly two-dozen laps down - he finished 34th. He eventually hit the track more than 20 laps down and finished 34th.

"To move on to the next round is special, but we're not satisfied with being in the Round of Eight", Larson said.

Although Larson enters with a 75-race winless streak that stretches beyond two years, he should be viewed as a candidate to win today's race. "I assume we'll have to win one of these next few weeks". "We want to go and make it into that final round of Homestead, where it's been my best track".

NASCAR heads to Talladega Superspeedway where Aric Almirola is the defending race victor.
