Kyle Larson fends off restart challengers for Michigan win

Two weeks ago at Dover, Kyle Larson took a painful master class in restarts from Professor Jimmie Johnson

In Sunday’s FireKeepers Casino 400 at Michigan International Speedway, Larson graduated with high honors, using a series of exceptional restarts to win his second Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race of the season and his second in a row, dating to last August, at the 2-mile track in the Irish Hills.

At Dover, Larson lost a race in which he had the dominant car when Johnson snookered him on a late restart and seized control of the race.

On Sunday, with a strong push from Ryan Blaney in the bottom lane during a restart on Lap 186 of 200, polesitter Larson cleared Kyle Busch for the lead through the first two corners and stayed out front the rest of the way — through two more quick cautions — to win for the third time in his career.
