The NASCAR season has already started off quite promising for NO. 5 Kyle Larson, as he retained the Chili Bowl trophy.
Kyle Larson has consistently been one of the top-10 drivers in 2020. Speaking in an recent interview, Chip Ganassi Racing’s NO. 1 driver Kurt Busch has no doubts about his former teammate’s ability.
Busch said, “I think we saw a good dose of that in 2020 with how he handled the departure from Chip Ganassi Racing and how he elevated his game to a whole new level on the dirt circuits everywhere. I was texting him win, after win, after win and I got behind about the 20th win.”
“Ultimately, the way he presented himself, the way he carried himself, showed his initiative with NASCAR on rectifying the problem and going through the road to recovery. Just everything about him last year shows what he’s going to bring to the track in 2021,” Kurt stated.
Kyle Larson has enjoyed a decent start to life at Hendrick Motorsport, with Larson now entering the prime years of his racing career, the swtich to Hendrick Motorsports was definetly a no-brainer for the Elk Grove Native.
“The professionalism of Hendrick Motorsports has never been questioned. The guidance there and just everything that I’m seeing adding up is that once he gets the feel of the car, and once he’s in sync with his crew chief – they’re going to be a tough train to stop.
I see that program as being one of the top contenders already,” concluded Busch on the subject.
