Larson Is $30,000 Hillbilly Winner

MIDDLEBOURNE, W.Va. — Reigning NASCAR Cup Series champion Kyle Larson held off three different challengers to win the 54th running of the Hillbilly Hundred on Thursday night at Tyler County Speedway. Larson, who won his first-ever dirt late model event at Port Royal Speedway in 2020 in only his second start saw, Sheppard, Alberson, and Garrett Smith all take shots at him during the race. With the win Larson becomes the 20th different driver to win a Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series race this season. “That might be one of the luckiest races I have ever had. The cautions just fell at exactly the right times when I needed them to,” Larson explained. The caution would come out and it would take me about 10 laps to catch traffic. He [Larson] had good speed up there running up on the banking. I felt pretty good, lapped traffic I would get out a little wider.
