Kyle Larson was reportedly seen in a NASCAR event in Philadelphia along with other NASCAR professionals.
The nature of the visit is made more significant if the profile of the other visitors is considered. Along with Larson, NASCAR President Steve Phelps and GM/Chevy executive Jim Campbell were also present in the event.
According to Sports Business Journal’s Adam Stern, the visit from NASCAR was to expand its work with Urban Youth Racing School.

As for Larson, he was been suspended indefinitely by NASCAR since he used a racial slur back in April in an iRacing event. However, recently, there has been talks of reinstatement, with several key professionals backing this action.
Larson has yet to request formal reinstatement but everything seems like a formality now as Larson’s return to Cup racing draws closer.
