Columnist compares Kyle Larson's style of racing to this legend

Kyle Larson just won his third race of the season and third race at Michigan International Speedway by pulling off an impressive move on a restart to speed past his opponents.

Larson only led two laps the entire race, and they just so happened to be the last two laps of the race. columnist Holly Cain compared Larson's style of racing in overtime to both Dale Earnhardt and Tony Stewart.

More specifically, Cain said Larson's style is very reminiscent of Stewart's, especially because Larson enjoys racing cars in addition to regular NASCAR cars.

"Just last weekend, for example, on a much-viewed social media video post, (Chip) Ganassi gave Larson 'permission' to race sprint cars in the historic Knoxville Nationals on Saturday night," Cain wrote.

"After winning his heat race earlier in the week, Larson finished runner-up to sprint car great -- and Stewart's team driver -- Donny Schatz in the championship A Main. It appears that was a great momentum builder for Larson, who has clearly demonstrated he is a "racer's racer" driving for a "racer's owner" in Ganassi."

Larson is in his fourth full-time season, and he is already one of the best drivers in the sport regardless of age. He is second in the points behind Martin Truex Jr., and only Truex has more victories than Larson this season.

If Larson continues winning and can capture a championship this season, expect to hear more comparisons to legends such as Stewart.
