Kyle Larson returns to the NASCAR after some off-track drama sidelined him for most of the 2020 season, he will be back in action with the Hendrick Motorsports team for the upcoming 2021 campaign.
Former NASCAR great Dale Earnhardt Jr spoke about the 28-year old in a recent interview following his return to the sport.
He Stated, “I feel like with Kyle Larson coming in, he needs a rebranding. He needs a fresh start. I also know that the #5 number is extremely sentimental to Rick Hendrick. It’s his first number in the Cup Series.”

The #88 ride will make way for the #5. For a long time, the #88 was a mainstay, but now the team has decided to bring back the #5.

Larson is taking over the seat that the now retired Jimmie Johnson vacated. The NASCAR icon has recently retired from the sport and will ply his trade in IndyCar.

they didnt want kyle to win lots more races then dale jr ever did with the 88 lol
I am very pleased that Larson is back. I believe he will have a great future in NASCAR.
He should have never been released. I hope he sues them. I’ve heard football, basketball and baseball players say the word on live national tv and not a dam word was said. Lets treat everyone the same.
Nascar Sucks. They want to control everything and are dumb about it. 1ST they make the teams use cars and all parts from a supplier that they either own or have an interest in. 2ND when they took away cars from the Showroom as race cars that took away from the sport. 3RD they just about want to tell everyone when to use the bath room. 4TH When they sid ed with BUBBA the NOOSE boy they screwed up big time, removing the Rebel Flag ( which is a Southern tradition) and bent over backwards for that puke BUBBA. BUBBA is one person and I’m not going to call him a man as he is one sorry ass idiot that wants all the attention. 5TH All you people connected with Nascar uphold BUBBA you are just as sorry as he is and that is as low as Whale shit and that is at the bottom of the Ocean. Thats all Folks, JACK
NASCAR has allowed Bubba’s actions to kill the brand. I can’t wait until the first time Larson does a bump and run on Bubba.
Kyle Larson is a great driver and will feel right at home with Hendrick Motorsports. Rick Hendrick made a good choice.
Agree 1000%. Staying WOKE will make them go BROKE! Go back to where they came from!
Larson is a talent that every sanctioning body would want in their series. I’m glad his career is back on track and glad to see him end up at HMS.

amen to that
