Larson captures first Sprint Cup victory

Posted: Updated:

BROOKLYN, Mich. (AP) -- Kyle Larson has his first Sprint Cup victory. He finished in front of Chase Elliott to win the race at Michigan International Speedway with Brad Keselowski third. Larson took the lead on a restart with nine laps remaining and held off Elliott who had a comfortable lead before a tire problem on Michael Annett's car brought out the yellow flag. Larson had the better restart and went on to win by 1.5 seconds.
   Larson's victory snapped a 99-race losing streak for Chip Ganassi Racing.  It also secured a spot in the Chase for the Sprint Cup with two races left in the regular season. Elliott remains winless, but is in solid shape to make the Chase field on points if need be.
