Kyle Larson To Remain Suspended By NASCAR Despite Sensitivity Training


May 6, 2020

Kyle Larson currently doesn’t have a job in NASCAR.

But even if he did, NASCAR reportedly still wouldn’t let him return to racing.

The California native was suspended by NASCAR and fired by Chip Ganassi Racing last month for using a racial slur during an iRacing event. Larson, who since has been replaced in the No. 42 Chevrolet by Matt Kenseth, was instructed to complete a sensitivity training program before he could be reinstated.

The 27-year-old recently completed the course, but will remain suspended when the 2020 NASCAR season resumes May 17 at Darlington Raceway, Sports Business Journal’s Adam Stern reported Wednesday.

Here’s Stern’s report:

An avid dirt racer, Larson — who owns a sprint car team — will compete Friday in the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series race at Knoxville Raceway in Iowa. It will be the series’ first race since early February.
