A winning night in Indiana for Kyle Larson Racing and its namesake
One night after the end of his eight-race winning streak, Kyle Larson rediscovered his victories on Saturday - and also his World of Outlaws sprint team.
Larson overtook Buddy Kofoid and Thomas Meseraull at the Lawrenceburg Speedway in Indiana and won for the fourth time in five races of the 16th annual Indiana Midget Week.
With his ninth career win at Indiana Midget Week, Larson set a record that the late Bryan Clauson had set.

OUTLAWS TITLE? Larson will not win the championship this year
Larson, who has won eight of his last nine starts on Dirt Ovals in the past two weeks, is also the first driver to win four in a single Indiana Midget Week.
He will be 57 points ahead of Kofoid in the sixth and final lap on Sunday at Kokomo Speedway.
But the good news didn't end there for Larson.
About an hour earlier and 200 miles away on the western edge of the state, Kyle Larson Racing driver Carson Macdeo won at the Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Indiana, for his first World of Outlaws NOS energy drink win of the season.
Have the winning language! Many thanks to Kyle Larson, @Tarlton_Racing, @ SeanDys241, @GoProMotorplex, @durst_inc, Lucas Oil and especially to my @ KLRteam team for believing in me! Had tongue fun

Outlaws rookie of 2019 beat Brad Sweet, Larson's brother-in-law, by 0.064 seconds.
Macedo led the first 28 laps before Sweet overtook him. After some caution, Macedo took the lead on restart and held back the 2019 series champion while navigating in traffic.
Larson has had three of his own Outlaws victories this year while focusing on Dirt Racing for the past eight weeks after being indefinitely suspended by NASCAR for using a racist slur during an iRacing event.
From June 7-18, he won eight consecutive starts in three series (All Star Circuit of Champions, World of Outlaws, USAC National Midget) in five states.
The series was interrupted on Friday when Larson finished second behind Tucker-Boat Motorsports teammate Chris Windom at Lincoln Park Speedway.
