Kyle Larson recorded a dominant Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series event win at the All-Tech Raceway.
Since his Cup Series suspension back in April, Larson has shown the racing world his proficiency in dirt racing. The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series event on Saturday is the latest testament to his skills on such grounds.
After taking the lead in the 14 laps, Larson went on to dominate the rest of the 50-lap race, winning it by 15 seconds.

Speaking about his latest win, the No. 5 Hendrick Motorsports driver said:
“I have been asking a lot of people how to run the bottom. I have been really bad every time in a late model about moving around. I can run the top good but moving around I haven’t been very good. So, I just tried to be a lot smoother. Gosh, my race car was so fast. I could go anywhere I wanted.”
While Larson might have lost some credentials in the Cup Series due to the nature of his suspension last season, he is revered in the dirt racing world.
Starting from February, his Cup Series duties with Hendrick Motorsports will take up most of his time, but Larson recently stated that he has some dirt racing plans for the 2021 season.
