2014 Indianapolis (Brickyard 400): Kyle Larson NASCAR Sprint Cup Post-Race Press Conference

2014 Indianapolis (Brickyard 400): Kyle Larson NASCAR Sprint Cup Post-Race Press Conference


KERRY THARP: Let's roll into our post race press conference. Our top‑finishing Sunoco Rookie of the Year candidate is Kyle Larson.

Seventh‑place showing here today for Kyle, another solid finish for you as you contend to get in the Chase. Talk about your run out there today.

KYLE LARSON: It was a good day for us. We were a top‑10 car the whole race. Had some good restarts there for most of the race. Then that last one we had to restart on the outside and lost a spot. Lined up fifth. Denny got to third.

But still a good day. The Target car was really good. We were just too tight on short runs, then we just kind of would build tighter, looser off. Everybody was struggling with grip out there.

It was fun. Cool to finish in the top 10 at the Brickyard. To see Jeff Gordon win is pretty special. It's kind of like Junior winning the 500 this year. It was a really good day for everybody and all the fans, too. So happy about it.

KERRY THARP: Questions for Kyle Larson.

Q. Talk about what was the thing you took away from your first Brickyard experience.

KYLE LARSON: Yeah, I don't know. It was kind of just like any other race. But restarts were definitely intense, just like they are everywhere. Inside lane was definitely the dominant one. I'm not sure what happened to Kasey on the last one.

For the most part if you were on the inside row, you were going to pass a couple cars. So, yeah, just being aggressive to try to gain as much as you could on restarts because it was really hard to pass once we got going.

Frustrating that it is so hard to pass. But makes you better at hitting your marks.

Q. Is this a race that you circled that you needed to come out and do well to have a chance at making it into the Chase?

KYLE LARSON: I think everywhere you have to make sure it's an important one to try to make the Chase because it's getting closer and closer every week. We can't make any more mistakes or have any more bad luck.

Every track is important to us right now. Now we get to go to Pocono next week where we finished fifth before. Set fifth as a goal, but hopefully try to do better.

Q. Kyle, what do you think can be done to the cars? Like you said, after the first five laps, seems like everybody hits a brick wall.

KYLE LARSON: Cover it with dirt and put some wings on top (laughter). I don't know. I'm not an engineer. I don't know how to answer that question.

KERRY THARP: Kyle, congratulations on another solid run. We'll see you at Pocono. Continued best of luck the rest of the way.

KYLE LARSON: Thank you.
