Kyle Larson bumps dirt winning rate to 50 percent with Outlaws victory at Port Royal
With his eleventh win in the NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws, Kyle Larson made dirt racing history on Friday night at Port Royal Speedway in Pennsylvania.
The 25-lap feature win was his 40th that season in 80 starts on dirt over sprint cars, midgets and even a late model (where he also won at Port Royal in August). His sprint car wins (including 23 Outlaws starts) were largely achieved in the No. 57 owned and operated by Paul Silva.
"I would have liked to have 30 (wins). That was probably a more realistic goal," Larson said in a publication by Outlaws. "But once we've raced ... this is the best I've ever ridden with Paul. We usually only do 25 to 30 shows. I think we were able to do more races for days in a row, which helped us to get into a rhythm. I think that's why we had such a strong summer. "
Larson, who recently said he was motivated this year after being fired from his NASCAR drive to prove he deserved to compete in the Cup series, started on the first Friday and led all 25 laps des feature to beat Danny Dietrich. Sheldon Haudenschild came third.

"I knew my car was good," said Larson. “It always is. As the race progressed, I started to slide more, but had a good enough start on the restart to hold a decent gap. Another great car. I can't say enough about everyone who works on it. "
In a rare appearance with his Outlaws team, three-time cup winner Tony Stewart was 13th. The Outlaws return to Port Royal on Saturday night.
