Kyle Larson: 2019 NASCAR Season Preview and Prediction

Driver of the No. 42 Chevrolet for Chip Ganassi Racing

With four wins in 2017 and arguably the third-best overall car that year, Kyle Larson entered the 2018 season with soaring hopes that a new car would produce a title run from the Chip Ganassi Racing camp. That run never materialized. Larson went winless last season and regressed in total top 5s and top 10s compared to the year before. It was in large part a product of inconsistent performance. Larson’s longest streak of consecutive top-10 finishes all season was four races — a feat he pulled off just one time, at Dover, Kansas, Charlotte and Pocono in the spring.
