Kyle Larson earns third consecutive All Star victory during Wednesday visit to Devil’s Bowl Speedway

MESQUITE, Texas (June 11, 2020) – Kyle Larson’s Cometic Gasket Thunder Through The Plains presented by Hercules Tires campaign has been more than impressive, not only scoring three consecutive Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 victories, but doing so at facilities scattered across three states, this time in the Lone Star State. Impressive enough, Larson kicked-off his four-race Midwest venture with a runner-up finish at Red Dirt Raceway in Meeker, Oklahoma.   Larson, driver of the Paul Silva-owned/Finley Farms/Tarlton and Sons/GSR/No. 57 sprint car, earned his third consecutive All Star victory on Wednesday evening, June 10, at the Devil’s Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas, utilizing the outside-pole position to eventually snag the race lead and another $5,000 top prize. Allowing slower cars to help in his pursuit of the front, Larson took command for the first time on lap 14, ultimately driving underneath race leader, Kasey Kahne, at the exit of turn four and defeating the Washington-native in a drag race back to the flag stand. That drag race, won by a mere-.03 seconds, would be the final time Larson was challenged the entire 25-lap distance, as caution flaps would wave the following circuit creating a restart situation in clean air for the Elk Grove, California-native.   Kasey Kahne held on to finish second at Devil’s Bowl Speedway, followed by an eighth-starting Scott Bogucki, Cory Eliason, and Aaron Reutzel, who advanced six positions to seal his top-five outcome.   “I was trying to be patient, but it got to the point where I told myself ‘it’s only a 25-lap race, so I’m probably being a little too patient.’ It was time to go,” Kyle Larson said, who now owns 13 All Star Circuit of Champions victories, this being the first in Texas. “I ran a few really hard laps there and ended up getting by Kasey (Kahne) just before the caution came out. I felt really good. Honestly, I think the car got better and better every time we hit the track and I feel like we definitely learned a lot tonight. Hopefully we can carry this momentum into the rest of the year.   “A big thanks to Paul Silva and Doug. They’ve been logging a lot of hours up and down the road this week and a lot of late nights and early mornings. We’ve had so many supporters step up and help us out and that means the world to me. To all of the fans, thank you so much for supporting local racing and staying up late to watch us race. It means the world to us.”   What’s Next:
