NASCAR Barometer: Larson Wins Second All-Star Race

This article is part of our NASCAR Barometer series.

Texas Motor Speedway hosted the NASCAR All-Star Race for the first time Sunday evening, and it was Kyle Larson who went to Victory Lane for the third consecutive race. While it wasn't a points-paying race, the win did come with a million-dollar prize for him and the team.

Ross Chastain, Tyler Reddick and Aric Almirola all won segments of the night's preamble to the All-Star Race, the All-Star Open, to claim spots in the main event and Matt DiBenedetto was voted in by the fans to take the 21st starting position.

In the end it came down to a 10-lap winner-takes-all finale where Larson, Elliott, and Brad Keselowski battled to claim the night's prize with Larson collecting the spoils.
