About Kyle Larson
Kyle Larson has taken the racing world by storm, but it’s nothing he’s not used to. Always composed and with a self-assuredness of a veteran, Larson continues to prove that the top is right where he belongs.
Although doubters believed his entry into the NASCAR Sprint Cup (now Monster Energy Cup) Series was premature, Larson’s rookie year statistics have surpassed that of NASCAR’s four-time champion and Larson supporter, Jeff Gordon. Thus, Larson went from being “the kid” to the sport’s “future star.” He is currently ranked 2nd in the 2017 Monster Energy Cup standings, with 4 wins and 4 poles; and is counting two 2017 XFINITY series wins (out of 10 starts), with a career record of 13 wins for both series. He ranked 9th overall at NASCAR Monster Energy Cup for 2016.
