Kyle Larson Scores 14th All Star Win Of 2020 In Lincoln’s Dirt Classic 7

Dirt Classic VII - Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 - Lincoln Speedway - 57 Kyle Larson

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA – For the 14th time of 2020, Elk Grove, California’s Kyle Larson found his way to Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 victory lane, and a big trip it was, scoring Lincoln Speedway’s Dirt Classic 7 for a $20,000 top prize.

Dominating much of the evening program, Larson, aboard the Paul Silva-owned/Finley Farms/Durst/Lucas Oil/Tarlton and Sons/No. 57 sprint car, led every circuit of the 40-lap finale, kicking things off in the Pigeon Hills with a win in each of his respective Dirt Classic heat races. Impressive enough, the Lincoln Speedway win is actually Larson’s second of the week, first securing $6,900 during the unsanctioned Weldon Sterner Memorial on Wednesday, September 16.

With all victories across all divisions included, Larson now owns 39 wins in 2020.

“My car felt great all night, so I was really happy about that. To get the win in our second heat race allowed us to carry that momentum into the feature,” Kyle Larson explained, who leads the 2020 All Star Circuit of Champions win count. “Central Pennsylvania is as tough as it gets. The first couple years coming out here, I only got to run maybe seven or eight times, but now that I’ve been coming out here a lot more with Paul (Silva), we’ve been quick. It just shows how good Paul prepares these cars and what our team is able to do. We certainly couldn’t do it without everyone who helps.”

Larson was relatively unchallenged during the entire 40-lap program with his only disturbances in the form of cautions; a pair of yellow flags on lap 26 and 31, and one red flag stoppage on lap 35.




Dillsburg’s Anthony Macri chased Larson for much of the Dirt Classic main event, snagging second from Rico Abreu on lap three and maintaining that position until the caution on lap 31. The ensuing restart allowed two-time All Star champion, Aaron Reutzel, and former full-time Outlaw contender, Brent Marks, to drive by the Macri Concrete No. 39M. The red flag stoppage on lap 35 for a tangled Paul McMahan and Danny Dietrich allowed Reutzel the opportunity to restart on the tail tank of the familiar No. 57, but Larson proved to be too much to overcome, driving off to score the $20,000 payday.

Aaron Reutzel finished second, followed by Brent Marks, Rico Abreu and Anthony Macri.

“Those last 15 or so laps, the cautions really worked out for me,” Larson continued. “That allowed me to just kinda focus on the track in front of me, as well as keep the tires underneath me. The first 25 laps were fun, too. When I caught traffic, I really wasn’t sure what to do because all of the lap cars were kinda the same speed. I never really saw a nose inside of me, so I didn’t feel pressured much.

“Thanks to all of the fans for coming out and supporting this race. We always talk about the competition in Pennsylvania, but the race fans are second to none. We love coming out here and getting to see everyone.”
