Kyle Larson’s hopes to snag a victory in the 38th King’s Royal World of Outlaws event at Eldora Speedway came to a crashing halt at the beginning of the last chance qualifier, when James McFadden made contact with him.
The contact sent Larson for a spectacular flip.

While the crash ended Larson’s attempt in the 38th running of the iconic event, at least he was able to walk away from the crash.
And luckily for Larson, with last year’s King’s Royal being canceled due to COVID-19, there will be a chance for him to win the rescheduled 37th King’s Royal, which will be contested later in the night on Saturday.
Following the second King’s Royal event, Larson will head to New Hampshire Motor Speedway, where he is slated to roll from the 10th position in Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series Foxwoods Resort Casino 301.
