Kyle Larson blisters the field on steamy day in Chicagoland: When Kyle Larson crossed the finish line at Chicagoland Speedway 8.030 seconds ahead of runner-up Kevin Harvick, there were no screams of elation from the winner of Saturday's Overton's 300 NASCAR Xfinity Series race. Instead, Larson placed an order. "Water, ice and towel at the start/finish line," Larson radioed to his team, after winning a race in mind-numbing heat that approached 150 degrees in the greenhouse of his No. 42 Chip Ganassi Racing Chevrolet Camaro.[More](6-30-2018)
