Larson, 28,who led a race-high 108 laps manage to win Stage 2 en route to his seventh career NASCAR Cup Series victory of his career.
Kyle stated: “Thank you so much Mr. H, Jeff Gordon, everybody at Hendrick Motorsports for the amazing opportunity I’ve been gifted,” Larson said after climbing from the car. “HendrickCars.com, Chevrolet, everybody at the engine shop, thank you so much for the hard work. This is definitely special.”
Kyle Larson beat NO. 2 Brad Keselowski to the checkered flag however, Keselowski was the only driver that kept Larson from sweeping all three of the race’s stages.
“It was such an awesome race car. Cliff and everybody did a great job preparing this piece. It was so much fun to drive. I could go wherever I wanted to. I knew we really had a good car once we kind of got single filed out, but drafting in the beginning of a run was really tough”
