What’s Happening?

On Thursday night, Kyle Larson participated in the Eldora Million, a popular sprint car race at Eldora Speedway in Ohio. During the race, Larson was caught up in a scary crash where he flipped his sprint car, and, thankfully, was left unhurt.

Larson has been well-documented as one of NASCAR’s most versatile racers. He routinely spends his weeks driving on dirt with his sprint car, and it makes him immensely respected amongst fans for his driving prowess.

However, this also comes amidst the context of his teammate Alex Bowman getting injured in a sprint car race earlier this year. It also is a departure from Hendrick Motorsports’ former policy where they would discourage racing outside of the Cup Series. Rarely would drivers like Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson drive outside of the Cup Series.

Fans even reacted to the accident ranging from jokes about Josh Berry to being thankful that Larson is okay. They also discussed how different Larson is from past Hendrick Motorsports drivers in how he races other races outside of the Cup Series.

MrDIngus84 jokes that William Byron is about to be limited severely by Hendrick.

bjrinald says Larson is superhuman with the ability to dodge these injuries.

Add Rick Hendrick to that list?

Is it possible to keep Larson from racing on dirt at all?

Is guess it is theoretically possible isn’t it?

It is risky, but isn’t it also about allowing drivers to live their life?

Thankfully Kyle Larson is okay, but it show why some owners are not thrilled with drivers driving in races outside of NASCAR. However, changes will probably not be made soon with Larson.
