Blaney Runs Down Larson Late In Atlanta

HAMPTON, Ga. – Just when it looked like Kyle Larson would cruise to victory in Sunday’s  Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway, Ryan Blaney arrived on the scene to crush his hopes. It took us a little bit to get going,” Blaney explained. With nine laps left Blaney made his first run at Larson, getting alongside him briefly in turns one and two, but Larson was able to hold serve. Blaney used that run to dive under Larson as they raced to the start/finish line, with Blaney leading the race at the line. “I wasn’t going to beat him in a 10 lap shootout,” Blaney lamented. In turn, that opened the door for Blaney to run him down late in the race. “I was trying to get out to a big gap, but I never really did,” Larson explained. I couldn’t get out to that gap that I could earlier in the race.
