Kyle Larson was a turn and straightaway away from becoming the ninth NASCAR Cup Series driver in the modern era to win four-consecutive races, but heading into the final turn of Saturday’s Pocono Organics CBD 325 at Pocono Raceway, a tire came apart, and sent him into the wall.
As Larson slammed into the wall, his teammate Alex Bowman scooted by to score his third win of the 2021 season.
