Kyle Larson picks up an early win at Pocono

   In what he hopes is a prelude to a strong run on Sunday, Sprint Cup Series rookie Kyle Larson won Saturday's Pocono 200 Automobile Racing Club of America series race by running down Mason Mitchell in the final 10 laps of the race.
   "I was nervous for a while there," Larson said. "He was real aggressive and got the lead, then started to pull away."

   Larson, 21, however, fought back and regained the lead and became the fifth different winner in as many races this season.
   "We had a good car, a dominating car," Larson said. "We definitely wanted to win. I was glad that we had to work for it there in the end. I learned something in all of this. In the end, it was a lot of fun."

   Mitchell finished second for the fourth time in his ARCA career. John Wes Townley was third, Will Kimmel fourth and Justin Allison fifth.
