Surprise Kyle Larson being the leading Chevrolet in the field
It’s no secret that Kyle Larson is the cream of the crop this season when it comes to The Chevrolet camp and while its impressive to see and well deserved, one would have thought one of the other Chevy’s would be ahead of him at this point in the season. Names like Jimmie Johnson, Chase Elliott and Austin Dillon all come to mind, but Larson outdoes them all!
Of course Austin Dillon is the only Chevrolet driver to go to victory lane this season, but his performance since then has been lackluster at best. In fact, Dillon currently sits 19th in points and will only make the playoffs thanks to their lucky victory at Daytona. Compare that to Kyle Larson, who sits seventh in points and has been capturing consistent finish after consistent finish this season and you see a stark difference.
Whether that difference finally leads to the championship that Larson has been searching for or not remains to be seen, but he is definitely the best contender championship wise from The Chevrolet camp. Of course that could change if Jimmie Johnson and Chase Elliott manage to hit their strides, but that hasn’t happened yet.
