Video: Kyle Larson Wildly Tumbles Down Backstretch at Kokomo Speedway

As Kyle Larson was attempting to work his way into a position to advance to the Main Event in Monday night’s High Limit Racing Series event at Kokomo Speedway, the Hendrick Motorsports NASCAR Cup Series racer slid up the track into Cale Thomas’ No. 23 machine.

As contact was made with five laps to go, Larson’s No. 57 machine got very upset and went for a wild barrel roll.

After rolling three times, Larson’s car came to an abrupt stop on its wheels. Luckily, Larson would be okay, physically. His pride, on the other hand, would take a bit of a hit with the incident.

“Yeah, I’m good,” Larson stated when asked if he was okay following the tumble.

Larson chalked the incident up to simply trying too hard in an attempt to overcome a bad qualifying effort earlier in the day.

“Just racing hard for a transfer, and you know put myself in a hole. Trying to race hard, and just ran ourselves out of space there. Probably my fault. But this goes back to qualifying, so, I suck.”

Larson, who has two NASCAR Cup Series wins this year, is the current NASCAR Cup Series regular season points leader. The versatile racer will attempt the Memorial Day Double later this month as he’ll contest the Indianapolis 500 and then fly to Charlotte Motor Speedway to compete in the Coca-Cola 600 later that same day.
