It must feel like déjà vu all over again for Kyle Larson.
The Elk Grove native finished just behind Jimmie Johnson in Sunday’s O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 at Texas Motor Speedway. With his fourth second-place finish in seven Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series races this season, Larson extends his series points lead.
“I had a better car than most, so I think that made the race a lot of fun for me,” Larson told Fox Sports. “I wish I could have got by Joey (Logano) a couple laps sooner. I think I might have had a shot at Jimmie.”
