HOT – Kyle Larson

Larson is having one heck of a rookie season. He currently is sitting 13th in the points and is only 19 points out of sixth place. His top-10 finish last weekend at Talladega gives him a total of five on the season and he is leading all of the other rookies in the rookie standings. If not for the flurry of late cautions on Sunday, Larson might have picked up his third top-five finish of the 2014 season. If Larson continues to run this well it will only be a matter of time before he picks up his first Sprint Cup Series victory.
