Preview from The Associated Press
CONCORD, NC (AP) — Kyle Larson is hoping a return to winning ways at Sunday’s Coca-Cola 600 could lead him to a second straight NASCAR Cup Series championship.
In other words, he hopes history will repeat itself.
Larson has only had one win this season – three months ago in California.
That puts Larson in an oddly similar situation to last year, when he arrived at NASCAR’s longest and most grueling race at Charlotte Motor Speedway with just one win in 14 races.
His 2021 season turned at Charlotte.
Larson dominated the Coca-Cola 600 by leading 327 of 400 laps in Hendrick Motorsports 269th career win, pushing HMS past Petty Enterprises to take the record.
The win revitalized Larson and his No. 5 Chevrolet team. The group won three straight Cup races and the All-Star race to gain the confidence and momentum needed for their title run. Larson won a total of 10 races and eventually his first cup title.
“It was so cool to give Mr. (Rick) Hendrick that historic win,” Larson said of last year’s Coca-Cola 600 win we were fortunate to be the ones to do it. Hopefully we can show the same performance this weekend.”
But repeating at Coca-Cola 600 is not easy. It hasn’t been done since Jimmie Johnson won three straight from 2003 to 2005.
NASCAR’s longest running race had many pitfalls from the start – tire wear, abrasion and the changing track temperature from day to night – and the new next-generation car only adds more allure. However, there are concerns as to whether the left rear tire can handle the load of such a long race.
Larson has as good a chance of winning as anyone. Fan Duel Sportsbook listed him as a race favorite at 5-1.
He has speckled the leaderboards all year, finishing fourth in Bristol and Talladega and second in Las Vegas and Kansas. He has a total of six top-five finishes but is ninth in the points standings.
“Track position will be important, so a good qualifying on Saturday will help a lot for Sunday,” said Larson.
