Kyle Larson "can’t even describe" his World of Outlaws win

Suspended NASCAR driver Kyle Larson picked up his first World of Outlaws victory of the season on Saturday night.

Larson, who remains indefinitely suspended from NASCAR and was fired from Chip Ganassi Racing for using a racial slur during the broadcast of an iRacing event, has been competing in several WoO events since that series restarted its season.

Larson broke the track qualifying record and finished second at I-55 Raceway in Pevely, Mo., on Friday night and followed that up with a victory Saturday night.

He led the last 16 laps to hold off Brent Marks and claim the $20,000 victory in the Drydene Double Down Invitational in front of a limited crowd due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

At one point, race leader Sheldon Haudenschild flipped in Turns 1 and 2 on Lap 23 of 40 to bring out a red flag. Larson controlled the race from there. Haudenschild walked away from the crash and was unhurt.

“Can’t thank all you fans enough for the support over the last few handful of weeks here,” Larson said in an interview on DirtVision after the race. “It really means a lot. Everybody who’s on this car, my family, my friends. This win means so much personally.

“I can’t thank each and every one of you enough. Everybody watching on DirtVision at home. All my supporters. It means a lot, and I can’t wait to get my journey started and kind of see where my future goes from here.”

The win is Larson’s ninth career Outlaws victory. Brad Sweet, Larson’s brother-in-law, finished third after winning the feature Friday night.

Larson, 27, was also at one point suspended from WoO competition but was reinstated once he completed sensitivity training within a 30-day period. He was also suspended from iRacing competition.

He has not yet applied for reinstatement with NASCAR.
