Kyle Larson on expectations before Texas: I think that will change things

Kyle Larson is ready for the next challenge that awaits him; Texas Race. After many changes to this track, many feel that it is still far from good. Kyle Larson gives his opinion about Texas track; "I would like to see them change it from a 1.5-mile track to something shorter.

I don’t know if that means bringing the backstretch in or whatever. If I could build a track, it would probably be a three-quarter mile Bristol, basically; pavement, progressive banking, all of that. But I don’t know if that’s even possible here.

I’m not sure what they have in mind, but anything would be better than what they did”. - Kyle Larson said. It will be an important race for him, and Kyle is aware of what he has to do. “I think we probably all look at Texas (Motor Speedway) as a good opportunity to hopefully get a win, get locked-in and not have to worry about the next two races," said Larson.

"Texas, I feel like it’s a very strategy-driven type of race track. It’s really difficult to pass, so you’ll see some different varying pit strategies going on, whether it be staying out, fuel only, two tires, four tires.

So just trying to have a good enough car to play that the right way and keep your track position. Having good pit stops and good restarts I think is important. It seems like all of that has been more important this year with just how difficult it’s been to pass."

Kyle Larson shares his expectations

He hopes that the race will go as he expects "Hopefully our car is good. I felt good in the All-Star Race. Just blew a right-front tire pretty early on, so I didn’t really get a fair judge of how we were then to how we’ll be now.

It’s much warmer conditions this week too, so I think that will change things a little bit. But yeah, hopefully it goes well”.
