Kyle Larson outlasts Chase Elliott at Michigan again

Kyle Larson outlasts Chase Elliott at Michigan again

"Awesome to win with Owen here, ya know he's uh, it's such a fun stage in his life right now" said Larson of his 2 year old son. "This is our second Cup win of the year, but we've had six second-place finishes", Larson told Fox Sports.

Two accidents setup the final restarts, one where Larson had to first fend off Chase Elliott, then Denny Hamlin on the decisive restart with five laps remaining.

On the whole, this season has had fewer mysterious debris-induced yellow flags than past years, although NASCAR would never say that has anything to do with its stage cautions.

With ten laps to go, Larson got a good restart and was pulling ahead until the final caution came out involving Ryan Blaney, Kevin Harvick, Danica Patrick, Daniel Suarez, and AJ Allmendinger. It seems Larson is learning how to finish these things off now that he's been in that situation a few times.

Kyle Larson has found his way back to two places where he'd like to spend a lot of time: Victory Lane and atop the standings. I figured there would be a caution as soon as I got the lead the first time. So winning the race Sunday felt special for Larson, even though it appeared it was a race many had penciled him in to win after the drop of the green flag. They're also among the most talented and consistent drivers in the field, as finding flaws in their performances really is a fool's errand. No Michigan-native driver has ever won a Cup Series race at Michigan. But he's been pretty good and Sunday was no exception.

Larson took the checkered flag, but Martin Truex Jr. won both Stage 1 and Stage 2 at MI to remain the Cup Series leader in stage wins. Sunday was Elliott's third runner-up finish in NASCAR's top series and all have come at the 2-mile track in Brooklyn, Mich.

"Cool to get back here in victory lane at MI".




"But if we can't identify what it is exactly, and it could pose something unsafe, then we'll usually, or nearly always, err on the side of caution and safety and put the caution out..." But for the most part, there was a lot of follow the leader or the auto in front of you by staying on the outside lane.

"From where we started the day to where we ended up, I was really proud of our effort", Elliott said. Whether it's Mother's Day, by not racing on that day, Memorial Day, Father's Day and eventually Labor Day, the sport regularly honors those people on a particular day.

Austin Dillon: You may recall Dillon taking the No. 3 vehicle back to Victory Lane at his hometown track, Charlotte. Hard to beat that. She was 37th and last, the only vehicle not to see the checkered flag.

Busch was unable to hold the field off late in the race as they all had better tires. "There were times I wondered if this was going to happen, " Millican said.

The next race is Sunday June 25 at Sonoma (Calif.) Raceway, the first of two road races on the NASCAR Cup Series schedule.

With a move to fifth in points, Elliott is still in contention for a spot in the playoffs. "Sure, I think he would have had to have made a bobble for me to get to him". The deep sleeper underdog who you might not think about pick is Michael McDowell. Byron, meanwhile, will have to keep trying for his first Xfinity win. Sure, he's a long shot, but crazier things have happened and a lot of people would go insane if McDowell got a Cup win.
