While we still have one more race before the Championship 4 race, Kyle Larson already wants to race at Phoenix Raceway for the season finale.
Kyle Larson is the favourite to win the championship this season and deservedly so. He has series high nine race wins. However, when it comes down to the final race, every four drivers will have a chance to claim the title.
As we saw last season with Kevin Harvick, even with nine wins and a regular season championship, Harvick failed to secure a spot in the final-four race. However, Larson has already booked a spot with not just one but two wins in the round of eight. Now, the Hendrick Motorsports driver is already looking forward to the race at Phoenix Raceway before the last remaining race of this round.
“Knowing that I have a shot to race for a championship. The anticipation definitely rises each day. So I wish we could go to Phoenix tomorrow and get it done and get racing, but I am excited to go to Martinsville. I’m always excited to go to Martinsville and start turning laps, and I realize that I’ve not learned anything from the times before. We ran good there, earlier this year. Ran fifth, finished fifth, so now we’ve got the Number 1 pit stall and starting from pole.”
Only Larson has managed to qualify for the final race and there are still three spots left for grabs between the seven drivers.
While Larson might already be looking at the race at Phoenix, but given the competitive nature he has, he will surely try to add to his wins at Martinsville Speedway.
