While he may be suspended by NASCAR, Kyle Larson is on a good form as he extended his winning streak on dirt to 8 races on Thursday. 

Starting in the 15th position at Lincoln Park Speedway in Putnamville, Indiana, Kyle Larson won the race at the Speedway to continue his unbeaten run to 8 races.

Larson moved ahead of Tanner Thorson in the Lap 22 and led the final nine laps of the race. according to Richie Murray of USACRacing.com, Larson explained:

“To come from 15th like that on a super technical racetrack is very special to me. I had a good line working in (turns) 3 and 4. People would enter in and turn across, and I felt like I could run above the cushion the whole way and be good. It got some holes developing over there. It was a little tricky.”

Thorson, who finished second in the IMW opener said:

“(Larson is) the best there is. There’s no two ways about it. To run second to him, I guess it’s saying something, but damn, I want to win. I need to stop this guy.”

The win marks Larson’s eight victories in 12 days in three series across five states. Larson remains suspended by NASCAR for the use of a racial slur in an iRacing event.
