The winner of Sunday night’s NASCAR Cup Series race at Charlotte Motor Speedway put his team alone at the top when it comes to finishing first.
Kyle Larson dominated from pole in the Coca-Cola 600 to give Hendrick Motorsports their 269th victory in the series. The victory broke a tie with Petty Enterprises for the most by one team in Cup history.
Larson now has two of those 269 wins (the other was in March in Las Vegas) after beating teammate Chase Elliott in the longest race of the season in mileage. Elliott claimed the record-breaking victory the previous weekend at the Circuit of the Americas, with Larson finishing second.

Kyle Larson pulled away from the field and hid from the field in the Coca-Cola 600. The polesitter led 327 laps of 400 and was more than 10 seconds ahead of his teammate Elliott at the checkered flag.

Hendrick made sure to congratulate Petty when asked to reflect on this milestone. “No.1, Richard Petty is the king of NASCAR and he has done so much for the sport,” he FS1’s Vince Welch told.
“Dude, this is so awesome,” Hendrick told Welch later. “All I could think of was the first win (for Geoff Bodine at Martinsville in 1984) and all the drivers. I want to thank all the drivers who have ever driven and won a race, and those who haven’t won.
