FONTANA, Calif.—Though Kyle Larson posted the best finish of his fledgling NASCAR Sprint Cup Series career last Sunday at .533-mile Bristol Motor Speedway, the rookie driver of the No. 42 Ganassi Racing Chevrolet prefers the bigger tracks with multiple racing grooves.

“I love racing at Auto Club Speedway,” said Larson, who finished 10th at Bristol in his eighth Cup start. “It’s probably one of my favorite tracks, because it’s so wide. You can run anywhere on the track, it seems like. Grip changes throughout the race and slows down throughout a run.

“Those seem to be the tracks that I think I do the best at, even though last week at Bristol was, as far as my stats go, my best track. But I like these bigger, slicker tracks.”
