Larson is “very grateful” for his second chance at NASCAR – Motorsports

28-year-old Larson was dismissed by Chip Ganassi Racing No. 42 Team in April last year for using racial slurs during the broadcast of the iRacing event and was suspended indefinitely by NASCAR.

He then returned and found a new vehicle at Hendrick Motorsport in the 2021 season. This week he admitted that there was a time when he couldn’t believe he could return to the NASCAR competition.

“I am very grateful,” he said on Monday. “I never thought I would have another chance to race at NASCAR. I accepted it throughout the middle of last year and tried to move my focus beyond the new. Race a lot and drive up and down the road. Life to do. I was trying to think about what would happen if my family and children started going to school. So, as I said, I gave me Mr. H. Thank you for the opportunity. It’s pretty incredible and I’m very grateful. I want to do a good job for everyone and all sponsors of Hendrick Motorsport. On and off the track. Do a good job and take advantage of this second chance that I may not be suitable. “

During suspension, Larson worked to reveal his name and prove that he had repented of his actions. He also regularly competed in sprint cars and won nearly 50 times.

Larson says he cares about success with HMS on the track as much as proving that he is “a good person I know” off the track.

“I won 46 times in last year’s dirt success, so I want to go back to NASCAR and be with a great organization that just won the championship and be strong there. I’ll win a lot of races last year. The win rate was 50%. Of course, I think it’s probably impossible to do this with NASCAR. But I want to be competitive every week, win a lot of races and hopefully compete. Championship for.”

He continued. “Also, I think there’s a lot to prove a race track. Show who I really am and show people the good people I know. Yeah, what I need to prove I’m sure there are a lot of them. I’m looking forward to it starting in the next few days, both inside and outside the race track. “

Larson has won the Cup level six times in 223, but has not yet won the Daytona 500.
