LLI TBT - LARSON ESCAPES MASSIVE CRASH LAST YEAR AT AUTO CLUB SPEEDWAY: On lap 48 of last year's Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series 200 lap event at Auto Club Speedway, #KyleLarson experienced one of the hardest hits of his young racing career.
Halfway down the backstretch, Larson's Goodyear tire let go causing him to smack the outside wall before losing control and slamming the inside safer barrier at over 180 miles per hour! The force of the collision caused the No. 42 Target Chevrolet to bounce in the air and spin like a top.
Fortunately after a few short moments, Larson was able to take his window net down letting everyone know that he was okay. "Im ok, that one hurt." Larson radioed to his #ChipGanassi crew.
