In an earlier unreported development, Coca-Cola had already part ways with NASCAR driver Kyle Larson prior to Sunday’s night incident, which involved Larson using a racial offend.
By now we are all used to the Coca-Cola Racing Family of NASCAR Cup Series drivers and the interviews with the obligatory swig from a Coca-Cola bottle in which these drivers are required to take part in. And one of the drivers was unsurprisingly Chip Ganassi Racing’s Kyle Larson.
Now it has been disclosed by Sports Business Journal’s Adam Stern that this is no longer the case. Stern label it as a “previously unreported development”.
What makes the fact that this statement was made right now extra interesting, is the fact that this move obviously had nothing to do with the fact that Larson used a racial slur over the weekend on iRacing at Autodromo Nazionale Monza.
➖ Therefore, Coke says that it has no comment today, as Larson no longer endorses the company. pic.twitter.com/KYhYlapanB

It’s not be made known public why, exactly Kyle Larson was dropped from the Atlanta, Georgia-based soda company.
