Of all the NASCAR drivers you can bet on to lose their temper after a race, Kyle Larson would top the list, from the bottom. There just haven’t been many occasions on which Yung Money has lost his mind.

But he did do that in an epic rant after the World of Outlaws Late Model Series race at Bristol Motor Speedway.

“Yeah, it would have been a lot easier if I didn’t have to come from the tail. I’m the only guy doing double duty here. So there’s a lot of s**t I gotta get done to get my stuff ready. And it’s no wonder that you got teams like Mark Richards pulling off the tour,” Larson said.

And guess what? The fans loved it. The reactions that poured in all across Twitter after Larson’s wild comments showed that they not only agreed with the defending Cup champion but also lauded his performance in the race that came to an unfortunate end.

Why was Kyle Larson sent to the back?

The reason, that might sound a little funny but is true and quite serious nevertheless, for which Kyle Larson was sent to the back was because he was late to the formation. That’s it.

This makes you understand his frustration because he is, after all, on double duty, racing in the Sprint Car and the Late Model.

But the fact that World of Outlaws didn’t empathize with the Hendrick Motorsports ace led to the driver sarcastically calling them out for putting on a show for the fans. The show Larson referred to was his run from the back, that almost ended in a win if not for a flat.

Nevertheless, whatever happened, he didn’t find it fun. Although Kyle Larson thought “it was fun for fans.” And as for the penalty giving him a boost of extra motivation, Larson kept it real and said it don’t matter.
