2014 Fontana (California): Kyle Larson NASCAR Nationwide Race Recap

Race Recap - Making his second-career start at Auto Club Speedway, Kyle Larson didn't back down until the checkered flag waved during Saturday afternoon's NASCAR Nationwide Series race. Although he and his Turner Scott Motorsports (TSM) team struggled to find speed during the weekend's two practice sessions, Larson managed to qualify the No. 42 Cartwheel by Target Chevrolet in the eighth position for the start of the TreatMyClot.com 300. Shortly after the start of the 150-lap race, Larson reported a loose race car and when green flag pit stops began to cycle, the No. 42 car made its way down pit road for a round of adjustments. It was the second caution, however, that allowed the TSM team to remove debris from Larson's grill and get the Cartwheel Chevy in perfect race condition to contend for the win. Working his way through tight traffic, the 21-year-old found himself battling seasoned NASCAR veterans for the lead in what was some of the most exciting final laps of the NNS season thus far. With speed, determination and a great team on his side, Larson claimed victory in the No. 42 Cartwheel Chevrolet in his home state of California.

Kyle Larson on his Victory at Auto Club Speedway
"Man, this feels awesome to get my first Nationwide win. I can't thank my Turner Scott Motorsports team enough for making those changes that got me to having one of the fastest cars on the track by mid-race.

Having Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick right on our bumper those last 11 or so laps was intense and I really didn't think I could hold them off, but I'm proud of myself for staying calm and not getting into the wall. A lot of things make this win special for me: It's California, it's my first win, and the competition was tough. I gained a lot of experience in the first five races with this team and hopefully we'll be celebrating again before you know it. This was a lot of fun and I hope the fans enjoyed the show today."

What's Next -The NNS will have the weekend off before heading to the Lonestar State for a night of racing at Texas Motor Speedway. The O'Reilly Auto Parts 300 can be seen live on Friday, April 4 at 8:30 p.m. EDT on ESPN2.
