Report: Hendrick Motorsports tipped to sign Kyle Larson

Hendrick Motorsports have been tipped to make a bold move of signing Kyle Larson by FOX Sports reporter Bob Pockrass. 

Kyle Larson is still suspended by NASCAR for using a racial slur in an iRacing event back in April. While the driver hasn’t formally applied for reinstatement, he seems to be on course to return to Cup racing for the 2021 season.

Tony Stewart, Stewart-Haas Racing’s team owner, has been vocal about Larson’s reinstatement in the past. While the former champion is a big admirer of the former Chip Ganassi Racing’s driver, Larson might not return to Cup racing with SHR.

They already have three drivers signed beyond the 2020 season, and they have already indicated to keep the same drivers’ lineup for the 2021 season.

While there are a number of open seats in the teams for the 2021 season, not many of them could provide Larson with the race-winning speed. However, one team that certainly can and has a vacant seat is Hendrick Motorsports. Seven-time champion Jimmie Johnson is set to retire from full-time Cup racing at the end of the 2020 season, leaving the No. 48 Chevrolet vacant.

Pockrass states, “… industry executives indicate Hendrick Motorsports is the leader to put Larson in a car for 2021.”

Still looking for a driver to replace Johnson, Motorsports could not do any better than Larson as he is one of the best drivers on the market right now.
