Suspended indefinitely by NASCAR for now, Kyle Larson will potentially have suitors when the suspension is lifted for the 2021 NASCAR season.
Kyle Larson was suspended by NASCAR back in April for using a racial slur in an iRacing event. As a consequence of his action, he was also fired by his team Chip Ganassi Racing.
While the former No,42 Chevrolet driver has completed the necessary sensitivity training, he remains suspended indefinitely by NASCAR. He has apologized for his misbehavior on a number of occasions. While we can not say exactly for now, but a return might be on the cards for the 2021 season.

Should the suspension be lifted, one team might be very interested to bring him back into the fold. Recently, RACER’s Robin Miller answered his Mailbag question regarding Kyle Larson.
“I called A.J. (Foyt) several weeks ago and told him to hire Larson, but he seemed to think Tony Stewart was going to do it. I asked Stew a couple weeks ago and he said he’d like to, but nothing to report yet. Larson belongs in the Indy 500.”
As only one of the drivers of Stewart-Haas Racing is under contract after the 2020 season, Larson seems a viable option to replace one of the drivers.
Chip Ganassi Racing replied to a tweet when a user said that Larson was fired considering a business point of view.

However, Larson won’t probably be returning to Chip Ganassi Racing.
