A photo of Kyle Larson’s 2021 Hendrick Motorsports hauler has surfaced; Hinting at race car sponsor
Kyle Larson is back for 2021. He’ll debut with Hendrick Motorsports at Daytona International Speedway.
Larson hasn’t raced in NASCAR since his April suspension after using the n-word during an online race. His NASCAR suspension was officially lifted on January 1st, 2021.
Details on the 2021 team have been limited. However, the leaks surrounding Kyle Larson have been rapid fire.
In late December, merchandise hit the internet from a 3rd party souvenir supplier. The items were listed as pre-order until January.
The merchandise didn’t use any sponsor logos on the car graphic. However, the red and blue scheme led many to speculate that sponsorship would be coming from HendrickCars.com .
Kyle Larson’s hauler leak
Now, the latest leak of the hauler photo tells the same story. At first glance, this might appear to be a standard Hendrick hauler used only for transportation.
On a closer look, you’ll notice that the No. 5 decal sits at the front of the hauler, near the cab area. Thus, this is in fact the hauler to Kyle Larson in 2021.
The hauler is branded with HendrickCars.com, Chevrolet, Mac Tools and Valvoline.
“The ‘5’ is special to me. It’s the original,” team owner Rick Hendrick said after Larson’s signing. “I view it as Hendrick Motorsports’ flagship team in a lot of ways. To bring the car back to the racetrack is meaningful for my family and for many of our team members and fans. We plan to build on its winning history with Kyle and (crew chief) Cliff (Daniels).”
At the start of the year, Chris Monez announced he would be the spotter for Kyle Larson’s NASCAR Cup Series effort. However, social media statements, likes and retweets regarding QAnon came into question.
Earlier this week, Hendrick Motorsports stated that Chris Monez isn’t affiliated with Hendrick Motorsports.
