Kyle Larson on Darlington Raceway: “I’m really looking forward to getting to Darlington and putting last week’s race behind me. We tested there a few weeks ago and it seemed to go well. It was good to get some laps at a tough track like Darlington. I got my first Darlington stripe, so maybe I’ll be lucky and have that part out of the way.”
