The second round of the NASCAR playoffs will see Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet's battling Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota's and the Fords of Team Penske and Kevin Harvick.
Larson's sixth victory of the season was the highlight of Hendrick's evening but with all 4 of the teams cars/drivers making it into the next round, they could not be happier.
“Obviously, Harvick and Chase got together. Chase was upset. Kind of held him up,” Larson said. “It got Harvick having to move around and use his tires up off the bottom. I started to get some dive ins working off of two, got a big run, decided to pull the trigger, slide him, squeeze him a little bit, hen he had me jacked up down the frontstretch. It was wild.”
“I love this place. This is by far my favorite track. This is why,” Larson shared with the crowd. “You guys are amazing, loud. We feel the energy while we’re out there racing. Thanks, everyone, for spending your hard earned money to come watch us putting on a show.”
