Ferguson Holds Off Larson On Bristol Dirt

BRISTOL, Tenn. — Chris Ferguson has won some big races in his career, but Friday night at Bristol Motor Speedway he said he won the biggest one yet. Ferguson held off a star-studded field of racers to win the 25-lap super late model feature at the Karl Kustoms Bristol Dirt Nationals and pocket the $10,000-to-win payday. Ferguson held off NASCAR Cup Series star Kyle Larson to take the victory. “This one is at the top of the list for sure,” Ferguson said. Ferguson posted the quickest lap of the race, on lap six, when he clocked in at 15.52 seconds. In addition to second place finisher Larson, the race featured two other Cup Series regulars in Chase Elliott and Kyle Busch. Larson, who won 46 dirt races across the country last season and finished second 20 more times, says he loves the variety of dirt racing and enjoys the super late models. “Every year we get a little closer to being at the top of the sport,” Ferguson said.
