Since Kyle Larson was a little boy, he had always wanted to win the Knoxville Nationals. Well, Saturday night, Larson finally achieved that dream in the 60th NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws Knoxville Nationals.
After beating Donny Schatz in a duel over the last few laps of the race, Larson went into epic celebration mode.
After doing the usual climbing onto the wings of the sprint car, waving the checkered flag and conducting an emotional post-race interview, Larson greeted the fans who came out to see him and some of the best in the world on dirt battle for one of the dirt-world’s most prestigious titles.
Larson held his red solo cup in the air amongst the throng of fans, and toasted.
