Kyle Larson finally is a Sprint Cup Series winner, triumphing Sunday at Michigan International Speedway in his 99th career start.
Larson led 41 laps in the Pure Michigan 400, taking the lead for the final time on a restart with nine laps to go. The victory essentially locks the Chip Ganassi Racing driver into the Chase for the Sprint Cup with two races remaining in the regular season.
After the checkered flag, Larson eagerly celebrated his first win – and his first Chase berth – by doing a burnout down the frontstretch and across the grass into victory lane. He climbed out of his No. 42 Target Chevrolet to a very enthusiastic reception from the crowd.
