This Ryan Newman/Kyle Larson photo -- best pic of all time? We think so

After Ryan Newman held off a hard-charging Kyle Larson at Phoenix Raceway to snap a 127-race winless drought on Sunday, a photo of the two began circulating on Twitter after the race -- a photo that is nearly two decades old.

 

 


When we saw this, our faces matched that of (a really, especially) young Larson, who was a mere 7 years old when the photo was snapped in October 1999. 

 

At least Newman was of legal drinking age at just shy of 22, but Larson, man. We can't get over the fact that the skinny kid on the right, missing his two front teeth, was battling the guy on the left for a win in 2017 -- the third consecutive week he's finished second. 

 

While Larson finished runner-up for the third consecutive race, we all came away winners after this photo popped up in our timelines.
