Kyle Larson is just four races into his return from suspension in the NASCAR Cup Series. If his form is anything close to a hint of how good he’s going to be for the rest of the season, then the rest of the series needs to the lookout. After running well the last two weeks, Larson was downright dominant on Sunday at Las Vegas, leading over 100 laps of the 267-lap affair as he hammered the field to win the Pennzoil 400.
The Hendrick Motorsports #5 driver has left last year’s controversy behind so early on into his career with his new team, surprising even team owner Rick Hendrick that he was able to win so quickly. Last weekend, his teammate, William Byron, had gone to victory lane, showing the strength of the team’s overall program thus far. Rounding out the top five finishers on the afternoon were Brad Keselowski, Kyle Busch, Denny Hamlin, and Ryan Blaney.
