Chip Ganassi Racing superstar Kyle Larson, fresh off his second Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series win of the season in Sunday’s race at Michigan International Speedway, has already piled on another pair of dubs in the two days since.

The 24-year-old was victorious once again in Tuesday night’s Arctic Cat All-Star Circuit of Champions at Ohio’s Sharon Speedway, a 3/8-mile dirt track that hosts sprint car races.

“Young Money” held off Carson Macedo and best friend Rico Abreu in a star-studded dirt field that also included NASCAR veteran Dave Blaney and XFINITY Series driver Cale Conley.

The Monster Energy Series points leader also won Monday’s Arctic Cat All-Star Circuit of Champions race at Wayne Count Speedway — holding off a second-place Kasey Kahne — and last week’s World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series race at Eagle Raceway in Nebraska, to spark the streak.

NASCAR Talk! / Out/off condition question
« Last post by johnnyo00 on June 18, 2017, 08:38:26 PM »
When a car is in the garage during a race with "Off" in the status, does the team, or NASCAR make the "Out" call? Seems like some are in the "Off" status 50 or more laps before "Out" finally is posted.
