Kyle Larson attributes Kansas’ victory to the ‘war machine’ in fight

Kyle Larson

In their duel for the victory at Kansas, Kyle Larson and Kurt Busch rarely made touch. What about the wall? That was an other issue altogether.

Kyle Larson

Larson attempted everything he could to remain in contention for the competition victory during Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series race at Kansas Speedway, but his No. 5 Chevrolet frequently collided with the barrier.

Larson drifted up the course and then into the barrier again when Busch got inside of him with 8 of 267 laps left and pulled ahead for the last time. Larson managed to complete second despite the fact that he had to fight for it.

Rather than blaming Busch of attempting a “bump and run,” Larson blamed the race’s aerodynamics and the Next Gen vehicle for the wall collisions.

“We were racing for the win, so, I mean he never got into me so I was trying to squeeze the throttle and get position on him and I just got tight,” Larson said. “That was fun racing with Kurt. The last half of the race I was trying hard the whole time. I got out front of him some there in the third stage.

“We just kept fighting through it. Thanks to my team for giving me a war machine. I hit the wall a lot today. I struggled when people put air on me and I got really tight and I’d hit the wall. We’ll work on that and figure it out.”

Taking on Toyota

Larson looked to be among the few vehicles on Sunday that could stay up with the Toyotas, who took six of the 10 leading positions, including the win.

“Happy with my car. The Toyotas obviously were extremely good today. They’re all in the Top 10 it looks like. They had the handling and a lot of raw speed,” Larson said.

“It was hard to hold off Kyle (Busch) and then I knew when Kurt got by him, it was going to be really hard to hold him off. I did my best. Just came up one spot short.”

Larson repeated that he had no problems with Busch’s late-race push for the victory.

“I wasn’t upset with him or anything,” Larson said of Busch. “It was just hard racing there for the win. I knew when he got to my inside, I was struggling in traffic a little bit and he was able to get by and from there, I just had to hold on to second.

“I just fought really hard today and overdrove it at moments. Just had to work hard for it.”
