RICHMOND, Va. — Hendrick Motorsports driver Kyle Larson is set for a busy weekend that will see him race three different cars at four different race tracks beginning tonight (Thursday).
Larson’s NASCAR Cup Series crew chief Cliff Daniels confirmed during an interview on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio with Claire B. Lang that Larson would start his weekend Thursday by competing in a $10,000-to-win dirt late model event at Tyler County Speedway in Middlebourne, W.Va., aboard the Rumley Enterprises No. 6.
Following Thursday’s race, Larson will travel to Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa., to join the All Star Circuit of Champions aboard Paul Silva’s No. 57 sprint car for the Tommy Hinnershitz Classic. He is the defending winner of the race.
After his trip to Williams Grove, Larson will rejoin the Rumley Enterprises team at Maryland’s Hagerstown Speedway to chase a victory with the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series.
The California native concludes his busy weekend by heading to Richmond (Va.) Raceway to compete in Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series Toyota Owners 400 in the No. 5 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet.
Larson won 46 races on dirt last season in a sprint car, midget, dirt late model and Silver Crown car. This year he’s already won the Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals in Tulsa, Okla., as well as a Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series race at Florida’s All-Tech Raceway.
The 28-year-old earned his first NASCAR Cup Series win of the season on March 7 at Las Vegas (Nev.) Motor Speedway.
