BECHTELSVILLE, Pa. – By virtue of his win Tuesday night at Grandview Speedway, Kyle Larson jumped to the lead in the Pennsylvania Speedweek presented by Red Robin point standings.

Larson, who bounced back from having his 17-race podium streak snapped on Monday with his $10,000 Tuesday score, opened up a 28-point margin over former leader Danny Dietrich, who slipped to second after a disappointing fifth-place run.

Larson is chasing his first PA Speedweek crown, while Dietrich is after his second. Larson is up 762 to 734 in the numerical tally.

Third-ranked Freddie Rahmer remains a distant 92 markers adrift of the top spot, with his chances at a maiden Speedweek title fading without a win, while Ryan Smith (631) and Brock Zearfoss (544) fill out the current top five.

Sixth through 10th are Rico Abreu (537), Brent Marks (530), Sammy Swindell (444), Lance Dewease (438) and Lucas Wolfe (426).

PA Speedweek rolls into Port Royal Speedway on Wednesday night for round six of the nine-night series, paying $7,000 to win. The URC 360 sprint cars are also on the card.
