It may be the end of the year, but Kyle Larson just got a win


A win is a win is a win, even if you go all the way to New Zealand to get it.

NASCAR driver Kyle Larson upped his 2017 win total to 5 by winning the International Midget Series race at the New Zealand Kiwi Speedway this week. Larson posted pictures of he and his team, including now fiancee' Katelyn Sweet, to Instagram.

This is Larson's second trip down south. His scheduled race was rained out last year, so he aimed to make this one count.

This is the same series in which Tony Stewart raced a few weeks back, but Stewart's run ended early when he crashed his sprint car. Larson had much better luck.
