For the fourth time this season, Kyle Larson missed it by that much.
Larson finished second in Sunday’s NASCAR Cup race at Texas Motor Speedway, missing out on a chance to challenge Jimmie Johnson for the win by a least one lap.
“If he had gotten to Joey Logano‘s bumper a little sooner and gotten him loose, then we would have seen a real battle, a battle I think we are really wanting to see now,” Dale Jarrett said on NASCAR America. “Kyle Larson is showing us exactly what he’s made of. If he could have gotten by (Logano) there, we want to see him race the seven-time champion for a win.”
Larson continues to lead the point standings through seven races this season and one win (Auto Club Speedway). He has five runner-up finishes dating back to the 2016 season finale.
“To start the year, the run (Larson) is on is very remarkable,” Steve Letarte said. “To think he’s still such a young driver. He’s wise, he knows how to pick his positions.”
