Zak Brown comments on working with Rick Hendrick and Kyle Larson

In 2024, Kyle Larson will make his Indycar Series debut. He’ll race the No. 17 for McLaren Racing in the Indianapolis 500 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

In the same day, Larson will race the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. That makes a combined 1,100 mile race day.

Rick Hendrick is set to attend his first Indy 500.

Very few have attempted to run the Indy 500 and NASCAR’s longest race, in the same day. Only John Andretti, Tony Stewart, Robby Gordon and Kurt Busch have previously done both.

On Sunday, Kyle Larson revealed the paint schemes for both machines.

Zak Brown on working with Kyle Larson Hendrick Motorsports

Hendrick Motorsports is partnering with Arrow McLaren to make the deal happen.

“Clearly, this is super exciting to be partners with Mr. Hendrick, who is an absolute legend and icon of motorsport,” Zak Brown stated.

“Maybe not that many people know this, but he’s not just a NASCAR guy; he loves racing. He has a cool IMSA program, he’s a true racer. To partner with his organization for his first attempt at the Indianapolis 500 is awesome.”

“Likewise, we get to go racing along with another legend of the sport in Jeff Gordon, who I’ve known for quite some time. You couldn’t be dealing with two more first-class people and a first-class organization.”

“Kyle Larson is one of those rare drivers and champions that can race anything, so we’re super excited to have him in our race car. He reminds me of drivers like Dan Gurney and Mario Andretti who could drive anything on wheels as fast as anyone. To have him join us for the Indy 500 is extremely exciting.”

“Not only can we give him race-winning equipment but also an environment where I think he’ll feel very comfortable with the collective efforts of Arrow McLaren and Hendrick Motorsports. There are relationships that have existed for some time between our two organizations and personal relationships between myself and Mr. Hendrick, and together we can provide race-winning equipment and environment.”

“I would like to give a shoutout to Chevrolet, they are instrumental in both Hendrick’s NASCAR Cup program and our IndyCar program, and we certainly wouldn’t be doing this if we didn’t have the collaboration and support of Chevrolet.”
