2014 New Hampshire: Kyle Larson NASCAR Sprint Cup Post-Race Press Conference

2014 New Hampshire: Kyle Larson NASCAR Sprint Cup Post-Race Press Conference



TOM BRYANT: We're joined now by our third‑place finisher and the highest‑finishing rookie in today's race, Kyle Larson, driver of the No. 42 Target Chevrolet. Tell us about your run today, Kyle.

KYLE LARSON: Yeah, it was a good day. We had some eventful parts with pit strategy and stuff. Made some pretty ballsy calls to get me in the lead and then, surprised me we stayed out front because we had a lot of laps on our tires at that point and was worried about getting eaten up on that restart but was able to beat Kyle and lead a handful of laps. Kind of maintained our track position from then on. We had a really good car I thought, definitely a top‑10, top‑eight car and then everything kind of worked out that last restart for me to line up sixth, which I thought was a really good spot to be in. I got lucky with Jeff running out of fuel so I could line up sixth, because if I would've been on the inside, I probably would've gone backwards. So it all worked out and got a top‑three finish today. Have to keep these good runs going after our bad three weeks we've had in a row now. Really happy about how today went, and have an off weekend and get back going again somewhere else. I don't know where we're at next.

Q. Kyle, you had those three bad runs. What does this do for the 42 team and yourself?

KYLE LARSON: Yeah, you know, it's a shame we've had those three bad runs because we've been a really good car, we've just had a lot of bad luck, power steering issues at Sonoma, right front at Kentucky and then typical Daytona. Yeah, I mean, we were up to tied for seventh in points before Sonoma and fell back to 18th. It really had us scratch our heads and praying to get some good finishes again, and now hopefully we've turned it around and can start getting some consistent finishes again.

Q. Was Morgan Shepherd in your way at all today? He was 15 laps down. He took out Joey Logano when he was running second.

KYLE LARSON: I never had a problem with him, but I felt really bad for Joey. I didn't see what happened, but I figured when they were both tore up he had to have gotten into him. It's a shame. He's just out there trying to have some fun just like we all are. I don't know.

Q. How much of an advantage was it for you to have that track position and clean air as opposed to 10th on back with a good car but with dirty air?

KYLE LARSON: Yeah, I noticed when we made that call to get in the lead, I noticed clean air was a decent help, not as much as other racetracks because we aren't carrying as much speed, but when I was back in traffic I thought I was a little bit looser off the corners than I was when I was in the lead. Yeah, I mean, clean air helps anywhere you're at, whether it's Martinsville or Daytona.

Q. It seems like you and Kyle Busch have put on some good shows for racing for position. Would it be safe to say that you guys have a nice little rivalry going on right now?

KYLE LARSON: I wouldn't say it's a rivalry. We just somehow are always finishing by each other. It seems like I'm usually one spot behind him (laughing), but it'll change soon. It'll change soon.
