It has been 75 races since the No.42 Chevrolet of Chip Ganassi Racing had not appeared on Victory Lane in the Nascar Cup Series.
A bad series that Kyle Larson broke last night on the oval of Dover (Delware). For his sixth career victory in the premier class of NASCAR, the Ganassi team driver, who started from the front row and already took the lead during Stage 2, emerged in the lead after the refueling round between Stages 2 and 3.
The Californian will then methodically widen the gap on the competition, led by Martin Truex Jr (Joe Gibbs Racing – Toyota). The former NASCAR Cup Series champion will never be able to match Larson, who pocketed a success that propelled him to the top of the general classification.
Truex Jr finished 2nd ahead of Alex Bowman (Hendrick Motorsports – Chevrolet, Kevin Harvick, best Ford representative with his Stewart-Haas Racing Mustang, and Denny Hamlin (Joe Gibbs Racing).
