Who won the NASCAR All-Star Race yesterday?
It’s a copy and paste phrase right now: Kyle Larson won Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series race. His last victory was in the All-Star Race at Texas Motor Speedway. Larson claimed his second All-Star victory with his first arrival in 2019.
Larson overtook Elliott and Keselowski with eight laps to go after the sixth and final stage of the 100-lap exhibition started in third place. Larson and Keselowski took the lead before Larson took power.
“How I needed that last reboot came out well,” Larson said. “Chas didn’t want to get back on track. Luckily, I think 12 (Ryan Blaney) got inside him, and I pushed him down his back and he thought I’d just follow him and he said, ‘There must be enough handles. where we would run to a corner. “
“It was a little over the top, but I got it and held on from there,” Larson added. “I can’t believe it.”
Keselowski broke another 1-2 sweep of Hendrick by bringing his Penske Ford team to second home. Elliott finished third.
“Right now it seems like going second to Hendrick’s cars is a kind of achievement,” Keselowski said. “They’re stupid, they’re fast and I turned 4. I ran (Larson), but they just have so much speed. He was motivated for me.”
