Kyle Larson remained unbeatable on the dirt Tuesday night, setting a track qualifying record and winning at Paragon Speedway in Indiana.

Larson started sixth and won the 30-lap feature over Tanner Thorson. NASCAR Cup driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr. finished third.

Larson now has won the past six feature races he’s started, including a sweep of the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car weekend at Knoxville Raceway last weekend.

OUTLAWS TITLE? Larson won’t be winning the championship this year

“I’ve been waiting a long to come here to Paragon to get my chance to race,” Larson said after winning in his track debut, according to Richie Murray of USACRacing.com.  “I’m glad I could add my name to the winner’s list here.”

The victory came in the opener of the 16th annual Indiana Midget Week, which will continue tonight at Gas City I-69 Speedway.

With his 20th career USAC National Midget Series victory, Larson tied the legendary A.J. Foyt on the all-time win list.

Larson, who has been focused on dirt racing while remaining on an indefinite suspension from NASCAR for using a racial slur during an iRacing event, also has eight consecutive Midget victories in the United States dating to last year (including his first Chili Bowl title in January).

Here’s a by the numbers breakdown of Larson’s streak of six victories in six feature starts over 10 nights since June 7:

–Two car types (sprint cars and Midgets).

–Three series (USAC, All-Star Circuit of Champions, World of Outlaws).

–Five states (Kansas, Texas, Oklahoma, Iowa, Indiana).
