Kyle Larson wasted no time returning to Victory Lane—albeit with the World of Outlaws.
On Saturday night, Larson led the final 16 laps on the way to a $20,000 payday at I-55 Raceway.
The displaced NASCAR driver, who lost his ride with Chip Ganassi Racing after using a racial slur during an iRacing event on April 12, joined the Outlaws when the sprint car series returned to action at Knoxville Raceway two weeks ago.
In his third WoO start since the series returned from a hiatus necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic, Larson held off Brent Marks by .794-seconds to win the Drydene Double Down Invitational in Pevely, Mo. It was his ninth career Outlaws win.
“I can’t thank all of you fans enough for all of your support over the last handful of weeks here. It really means a lot. And everyone that is on this car, Tarlton, Finley Farms, Lucas Oil, Priority Aviation, my family, my friends, everybody. This win means so much personally. I can’t even describe it.”
