Who is Kyle Larson?

Kyle Larson (born July 31, 1992) is an American professional auto racing driver and the 2021 NASCAR Cup Series Champion. He competes full-time in the NASCAR Cup Series, driving the No. 5 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE for Hendrick Motorsports.

Larson also competes weekly in various Dirt Late Model competition for the No. 6 Rumley Motorsports team and the 410 Winged Sprint Car No. 57 Paul Silva Motorsports team. Larson won his first cup title in 2021 in his first Hendrick season after winning ten out of 36 races, more than double the amount of any other driver.

A year and a half ago, Kyle Larson made probably the worst impulsive decision of his life. The then 27-year old driver had lost the attention of his spotter during a virtual race and chose the worst possible racial slur – “n*****” – to get it back.

Reaction was swift and appropriate; within two days he had lost his sponsorship and his contract with Chip Ganassi Racing.  After serving a nearly year-long suspension handed out by NASCAR, Larson returned to the Cup series this year and was absolutely dominant.

He closed out a ten win season – the series’ first since Jimmie Johnson in 2007 – with a championship-clinching win on Sunday in Phoenix.

Sports fans are well accustomed to hearing non-apologies of the “if I offended anyone…” nature, and NASCAR isn’t without its arrogant and stubborn personalities (see: Denny Hamlin, Kurt Busch, every driver through about 1992), but from the very beginning Larson seemed sincere in his remorse and genuinely interested in learning from his mistake.

Larson told the Associated Press that he was “ignorant. And immature… There’s probably a lot of real-life experiences I didn’t get to have and I was just ignorant to how hurtful that word is.”

After the 2014 Rookie of the Year attended a NASCAR-mandated sensitivity class, he knew he had to do more.

Larson immediately apologized to Bubba Wallace and spoke to the series’ only Black driver repeatedly about how he could educate himself.

Wallace, who got his first Cup series win last month in Talladega – where a noose was found in his garage stall last year – said he felt Larson’s apology was sincere.

Larson also contacted former soccer player Tony Sanneh, who provides underserved Minneapolis area youth with meals, academic help, and camps.
