Kyle Larson won Wednesday night’s fourth annual Aspen Dental Eldora Dirt Derby 150 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at Eldora Speedway.

“It means a lot, especially losing the way I did the two years I ran,” Larson said.

Christopher Bell finished second and Rico Abreu third.

To get the victory, Larson had to overcome a bit of adversity.

“We got the flat tire there early, I knew we would get a lucky dog, I just didn’t know if I could get back to the top-three as quick as I did. It just worked out where I got by (Christopher) Bell when he got in the wall and I think Bobby (Pierce) had a gear issue. He was definitely better than I was for sure.”

Larson was also docked one lap by NASCAR for intentionally causing the yellow after spinning and stopping on the race track.

Larson had a good restart with 16 laps to go and cruised to the finish line.
