Kyle Larson Reveals What Makes Him “Feel Good” About the Unfortunate Spin That Took Him Out of the Race at Darlington

Despite missing out on potentially his second win of the season, Kyle Larson wasn’t really upset with not being able to finish the race at Darlington. The Hendrick Motorsports driver ran strong and showed good speed, but then an unexpected spin took him out of the race.

But Larson took solace in the fact that at least his car was pretty fast, something he’s hoping to take to Kansas next week.

“We blew up, but my car’s really fast, so I’m happy about that and looking forward to getting down the road,” Larson said in an interview.

“It stinks, especially at a track where I feel like we were capable of getting a win. The car is definitely capable of winning, so it’s a bummer,” Larson continued. “But it also makes me feel good that our team brought out a fast car.”

“I think being in the position that we’re in, you have to be very careful with what you put out in the public,” Larson said.

However, Kyle Larson revealed that he has “no hard feelings” from his side. He thinks it is only after putting something out there, that one can realize how offensive it truly can be.
