Video: Kyle Larson Turned on Backstretch in Last-Lap Battle with Denny Hamlin

Kyle Larson and Denny Hamlin got into it on the final lap of Sunday’s AdventHealth 400 at Kansas Speedway, while racing for the victory. Larson, who got turned to the outside wall, ended the race still in second.

Denny Hamlin and Kyle Larson finished 1-2 in Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series event at Kansas Speedway, although the front-end of the No. 5 Chevrolet Camaro has heavy front-end damage.

The damage comes from hard racing for the win and some last-lap contact between Hamlin and Larson on the backstretch, which ultimately sent the No. 5 Chevrolet Camaro into the outside wall.

Hamlin was able to sneak by Larson to score his first victory of the 2023 NASCAR Cup Series season, while the Hendrick Motorsports driver limped his wounded Chevrolet back to the start-finish line in second place, 1.3 seconds behind the eventual winner.

Despite the definite contact on the last lap of the race, which kept Larson from his third victory of the season, it didn’t seem as though there were any hurt feelings between the two drivers.

The victory is the first of the NASCAR Cup Series season for Denny Hamlin, and his first since winning the Coca-Cola 600 in May 2022.
