The Latest: Byron moves into NASCAR All-Star Race
CONCORD, N.C. (AP) — The Latest on the NASCAR All-Star Race (all times local):
Larson advanced into the prime-time spectacle by winning the Monster Energy Open earlier at Charlotte Motor Speedway, then kept near the top until the next-to-last restart when he was in sixth position. That’s when Larson slipped between Kyle Busch and Joey Logano before Harvick pushed him hard to the front.
Larson earned the $1 million first prize and got a measure of success in a season best remembered for his going airborne and barrel rolling a half-dozen times in a scary, last-lap crash at Talladega Superspeedway last month.
Harvick was second, Busch third, Logano fourth and Bubba Wallace fifth.
