Reigning 2021 NASCAR Cup Series champion Kyle Larson is getting rather impatient waiting, the HMS driver confessed that he is itching to jump in his car and go racing again.
According Larson, a couple weeks off is alright. However, he has not been at home all off season, because he competed in the Chili Bowl Nationals earlier this month.
“A couple of weeks off is OK,” Larson told FOX Sports last week. “More than a couple, I feel like I’m getting behind. Had you asked me in the middle of the offseason, a couple of weeks in, I would be like, ‘Oh, this is great to have some time off.’
Kyle Larson wasn’t really a fan of the offseason break
Larson said, “After five or six weeks of not racing, I’m like, ‘I want to race. Screw the offseason.’ [My wife] Katelyn likes it, likes the normal lifestyle of having the holidays at home and with the family and stuff like that. But that’s not normal to me.”

The Hendrick Motorsports man admitted that there are some advantages of being at home, but by the time he got to the Chili Bowl midget nationals this month, he was way beyond ready to race again.
