It was some weekend for Kyle Larson.
He ran in two races in 24 hours, coming in a close second at the A-Main sprint car race at the Knoxville Nationals in Iowa, the hopped a plane and pulled off another feat, winning at the Pure Michigan 400 at Michigan International Speedway.
What was the key to victory? His restart.
“That was the most perfect restart of my life,” Larson said after the race, and as quoted by NBC Sports. “I’ve lost a few late restarts, but to get one from the second row makes up for a few of them.”
After a late caution, and on the 199th lap, Larson passed Martin Truex, Jr. to win his third race of the year and his third in a row at Michigan.
