NASCAR driver Kyle Larson returns to Placerville for dirt track racing

NASCAR driver Kyle Larson returns to Placerville for dirt track racing

Larson, who is from Elk Grove, won both NASCAR races this past weekend at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana.

Morning rain delayed the start of Friday's on-track activity, pushing Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series practice from 11:30 a.m. ET to noon, with practice ending at 1 p.m. ET. "That is really where we are at".

Despite the dry start to the day, a series of heavy rains put an end to Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series qualifying before it even began. "If we can get a top five or top 10 here, that would be a huge success". I think we are right on the edge there of top five, top three auto. "But I feel like everybody needs to encourage me and others to go race at your local short track and all that because I feel like we've lost touch with our grassroots race fans".

"It's great to be home in front of family and friends and all the people we grew up in front of, and all the people I grew up racing with, get to come back home and only be 5 minutes from where we live now", Sweet said. Also, Joey Logano will factor early in this race.

The film's source material began as a manga which has gone on to spawn anime films, TV shows, video games - you name it. While in the future she may run for office, the actress says that she doesn't have the time right now.

"Well, I think the competition in general at every single racetrack has tightened up because of data sharing", Hamlin said.

Things keep going right for Kyle Larson. "That number one pit stall will be big here, it seems to be as good as it gets with any track we go to". The field will be set by owner's points giving Kyle Larson the pole, while Chase Elliott will start second. "The last couple of years we've had a good set-up and been able to use it to have some pretty good runs".

Allmendinger now is 30th in the series standings, and with qualifying rained out on Friday, he'll start 30th on owner points on Sunday and will have to come through the field to achieve a strong finish. However, the rookie never found the speed he was looking for in his back up after wrecking his primary vehicle on Friday during first practice for Sunday's Goody's 500.
