Larson Fastest in Second Practice at Las Vegas

Kyle Larson topped the chart in second Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series practice at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The driver of the No. 42 Chip Ganassi Racing Chevrolet posted a time of 28.791 and a speed of 187.559 mph.

While not his first time on top of the leaderboard this weekend, it was the first time the Ford’s didn’t occupy the majority of the spots in the Top-10. That distinction went to the Chevrolet’s.

Trailing Larson was Ryan Newman with a time of 28.807 and a speed of 187.454 mph, Jimmie Johnson with a time of 28.941 and a speed of 186.587 mph, Kevin Harvick with a time of 29.089 and a speed of 185.637 mph and Alex Bowman with a time of 29.125 and a speed of 185.408 mph.

Ryan Blaney, Darrell Wallace Jr., Clint Bowyer, Michael McDowell and Martin Truex Jr. rounded out the Top-10.

Harvick posted the fastest 10 consecutive lap average at a speed of 184.663 mph.

Denny Hamlin took his car to the garage after a parts failure. He returned to the race track, after repairs.

Tucker White
My name is Tucker White. I'm currently majoring in journalism at the University of Tennessee. I started getting into NASCAR around 1998 and started following the sport full-time in 2001. I live and breathe everything related to NASCAR. I also have a burning passion for all things auto racing. I've been following Formula 1 since 2011 and am slowing getting into IndyCar. I do my best to keep up with the World Endurance Championship. But at the end of the day, NASCAR is my primary beat. Being both a native of Knoxville, Tennessee and a student at UT, I'm naturally a die-hard Tennessee Volunteers fan. Especially when it comes to Tennessee Volunteers football. While I'll never stop being one, it can be the most heart-wrenching thing ever. Since 2005, this team has delivered more than its fair share of heartbreaking moments and inhuman frustration. I've stuck with the Vols from the best of times - 1998 National Champions - to the worst of times - 2005 to present - because I know that it'll make it all so worth it when the mighty Vols finally return to the top of the college football landscape. In the last few years, I started to really get into baseball. This past season, I decided to pledge my sporting allegiance to the Atlanta Braves. It didn't turn out too well as they finished 67-95 and finished fourth in the NL East. I do see great potential with the young roster and they might be a force to be reckoned with in the coming years.
