The Hendrickcars.com sponsored Larson picked up his first win since the 2019 season when he won the Drydene 400 at Dover International Speedway on Sunday, October 6, 2019, in Dover, Delaware. This is Larson’s seventh NASCAR Cup Series win.
“It was such an awesome race car,” Larson said. “Cliff and everybody did a great job preparing this piece. It was so much fun to drive. I could go wherever I wanted to. I knew we had a really good car once we would kind of get single-filed out, but just drafting early in the run was tough.
“But thank you so much Mr. (Rick) Hendrick, Jeff Gordon, and everybody at Hendrick Motorsports for the amazing opportunity I’ve been gifted.”
This is his first win since he returned to the sport this season. He was fired in 2020 for using a racial slur during a video game on Easter Sunday.
Discount Tire sponsored driver Brad Keselowski finished second in his Team Penske entry. Las Vegas-based Ethel M Chocolates driver Kyle Busch finished third in his Joe Gibbs entry.
Larson dominated the event. He led 103 laps in his first win in a year and a half.
He nearly led half of the total laps in the race. There were 267 total laps.
