Superb restarts propel Kyle Larson to victory in Michigan

By: Reid Spencer

BROOKLYN, Mich. – 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 two-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.
