Hendrick Motorsports driver Kyle Larson was only a corner away from becoming the first  NASCAR Cup Series driver since Jimmie Johnson in 2007 to win four consecutive races.

Larson had a flat tire while leading on the final lap of Saturday’s evening race at Pocono when he smashed into the wall in Turn 3 which gave the lead to his HMS teammate Alex Bowman NO.48 who earned his third win of the season in remarkable fashion.

Kyle Larson had the fastest car at Pocono all day and was clearly faster than his teammate Alex Bowman over the final run. Larson’s pursuit for a fourth consecutive regular-season win fell short by less than a half of a lap.
