It’s Falling Apart For NASCAR’s Kyle Larson As Sponsors Pull After Suspension

by

Kyle Larson was indefinitely suspended by NASCAR on Monday after using a racial slur during a virtual race.

And that morning announcement proved to be just the tip of the iceberg.

The 27-year-old Larson now has had sponsorships pulled from Chevy, McDonalds and Credit One, according to multiple reports. His race team, Chip Ganassi Racing, suspended him indefinitely as well.

The fallout comes after Larson was heard saying the N-word as he streamed the iRacing event on his Twitch account Sunday night. At the time, it appeared Larson did not know his comment was public.

Larson, one of the more successful NASCAR drivers, since has issued an apology. However, we’ll have to wait and see how the remainder of his NASCAR career unfolds.
