Kyle Larson He is the title holder of the NASCAR Cup Series. He’s already won and locked himself up in the 2022 qualifiers. What’s left for him Hendrick Motorsports Teammates are also bound by the post-season, where each driver is also guaranteed to win a third of the way through the season.
Larson appeared this week NASCAR Race Hub, where he talked about his season, the performance of the organization as a whole, and what he expects for the future. He also revealed an interesting amount of information about the organization that must have been very concerning to the other teams in the garage. And the numbers support that.
Kyle Larson reveals interesting information about Hendrik’s motorsport
Kyle Larson debut NASCAR Race Hub This week consists of expected questions, including what he’s thinking The William Byron Incident with Joey Logano In Darlington (more on that later). However, when asked by David Ragan about the dynamic of how HMS teams work together, Larson provided a few interesting information that doesn’t bode well for the Cup Series competition the rest of 2022.
“I’ve only come from a team with myself and another teammate before, so being on the four-car Hendrick Motorsports team was a little bit unique to what I was used to before, but I feel like we’re all young and we all agree,” Larson said. We’re all working hard and we really want to see each other succeed and win if we can’t win.”
“I’m really happy which of my teammates wins. William was doing a great job. Each of us is doing a great job chasing. Alex. We all got a win. All the mechanics and crew chiefs work well together. You know I’ve been coming here for over A little bit general, but from what I understand this is as close as these teams have ever worked together, and I think that definitely will pay off in the results we get every weekend. So we just have to keep working like we’re together and I think we should be We are able to win some championships down the road as an organisation.”
With all the talk coming this year about Next generation car leveling the playing fieldHendrick Motorsports didn’t seem to get the memo. The team that won the championship last year with Larsson showed no signs of competitive decline in switching to the new car.
A third of the way through last season the organization has posted 27 top ten rankings and three wins. This year, HMS has 26 top 10s and five wins. And it might have been at least one more for Byron last week in Darlington before Lugano sent him to the wall. These numbers show, Larson suggested, an organization that works together cohesively.
The interesting thing about Larson’s individual numbers this season is that they could be much better. He’s had six in the top 10 – compared to seven last year – and won one in the second race of the season at Fontana. Mixed in the first 12 races is four amazing DNFs. He had two each last year.
Larson talks about Byron’s fiery response in Darlington
at the end of him Racing Center In an interview, host Shannon Speke admitted she couldn’t let Larson get away without asking about last weekend’s race in Darlington and what happened between his teammate and Lugano. Except that she didn’t want to talk about the incident itself, but Byron’s subsequent hot reaction. Larson admitted that it surprised him.
“I was like, ‘Oh man, it was great to see William showing some emotion in there. He’s the nicest guy in sports I know,'” Larson said.
It looks like the entire organization is on fire in 2022 and the collective performance so far reflects that. It could herald things to come and that could mean a third consecutive title win for what is already the most winning organization in the history of the Cup Series.
