A-MAY-ZING: Kyle Larson Concludes Monumental Month of May with Kubota High Limit Racing Win at Lawrenceburg

After the month he's had, it felt quite fitting that Kyle Larson use the final day of May's calendar to go dominate a Kubota High Limit Racing Sprint Car event at Lawrenceburg Speedway - located in Indiana of all places.

The 31-year-old Elk Grove, California native, who they still call "Yung Money," captivated the attention of Motorsports fan across the globe this month with his intense schedule featuring his full-time NASCAR Cup Series duties, his first attempt at the Indianapolis 500, and his continued passion for Sprint Car Racing.

Already this month, Larson had won the closest finish in NASCAR history (0.001 seconds) at Kansas Speedway and then qualified fifth and led laps at during "The Greatest Spectacle in Racing" at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Five days later, he was parking Paul Silva's #57 in Whiskey Myers Victory Lane at Lawrenceburg.

Starting from third on Friday night, Larson immediately jumped to second and set his sights on Rico Abreu for the race lead. After driving by on Lap 9, KL survived multiple restarts, lap traffic, and a few mega sliders to cruise to the $12,000 victory in the 30-lap race.

It was his fifth-career win with Kubota High Limit Racing and snapped a 10-race streak since his last Sprint Car win at the season opener at Florida's East Bay Raceway Park in February. It was also his fourth-career win at Lawrenceburg Speedway before driving over to St. Louis for a NASCAR weekend.

Rico Abreu, who is without crew chief Ricky Warner this weekend - being inducted into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame in Knoxville, Iowa - kept his streak alive with a fourth-consecutive podium with the series. The #24 finished P2 as he now sits one-point behind Corey Day for fourth in series points.

Kokomo, Indiana's Parker Price-Miller took full advantage of his final home state race of the season and parked the #9P on the podium for the first time with Kubota High Limit Racing. PPM went eighth-to-third and even restarted at one point with a shot to steal the lead from Larson.

Brad Sweet and Kalib Henry rounded out the top-five with Cory Eliason, Tanner Thorson, Brent Marks, Corey Day, and Jacob Allen closing out the top-10.
