Kyle Larson wants to run a dirt late model
Kyle Larson just picked up his first Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series win on a short track. He took his first MENCS short track win at Richmond Raceway.
He took to facebook live. Naturally, the fans had some dirt racing questions for Mr. Sprint Car.
Watch the video below.
Will Kyle Larson be running the 2018 Chili Bowl?
“Yes, I will be,” Kyle Larson stated via the facebook live video, posted below.
“In the Keith Kunz Motorsports stable once again. Hopefully, [I’ll] be in that pit area for the rest of my life. I enjoy the Chili Bowl.”
“I hope to win that race some day. I’ve been close a handful of times. But, I seem to find a way to suck on Saturday.”
Is there any type of racing Kyle Larson hasn’t tried yet but wants to?
“I’d like to race a dirt late model. For sure,” Kyle Larson declared.
“Those cars look really, really fun. The racing’s always tight. You can run 3-4 wide at most tracks.”
“I would love to run the Indy 500, probably. Hopefully, we have the opportunity to do both of those cars, some day.”
Favorite dirt track?
“My favorite dirt tracks, probably, Tulare or Kokomo Speedway,” Larson refers to Tulare Thunderbowl Raceway.
“My favorite NASCAR track is Bristol and Homestead.”
Favorite driver to race against?
“I guess in NASCAR, Kyle Busch. In dirt racing, Donny Schatz or Rico Abreu.”
Why them? Larson explains, “Just because they’re always up front. So, if you’re racing them, it means you’re up front.”
If Kyle Larson owned a 2nd sprint car team. Who would he hire to drive the car?
“David Gravel, right now. I’d probably have David Gravel in a 2nd car for sure. But, Shane Stewart’s been kicking everybody’s butt right now. We’re good with one car.
Should Bristol run another dirt race?
“Yeah,” Kyle Larson is interested.
“I think so. I’d like to go race a sprint car there. It would be fast. Fast as heck.”
Are you interested in buying a dirt track with Tony Stewart?
“I’m not interested in buying any dirt track with Tony Stewart.”
Midgets or 360’s?
“Definitely midgets. I wish 360’s would go away and there would only be 410 racing.”
Is Kyle Larson going to the 4 Crown Nationals at Eldora Speedway?
“I am not going to the 4 crown. With smoke retiring, our plane rides have gone away a little bit. I wouldn’t have a ride, either to Eldora or back. I’ll be watching online though.”
What do I wanna do when I grow up?
“I wanna win a World of Outlaws Championship.”
