Larson still suspended by NASCAR despite completing sensitivity training

Kyle Larson remains suspended by NASCAR.

NBC Sports reported on Wednesday that Larson had completed his mandated sensitivity training but was still suspended by NASCAR following a racial slur used in a April 13 iRacing event.

Larson would lose sponsorship from McDonald’s, Credit One, Clover and Chevrolet enroute to losing his seat in the No. 42 car at Chip Ganassi Racing. Matt Kenseth has since been named as a replacement driver for the seat previously occupied by Larson who was set to become a free agent at the end of the 2020 NASCAR season with those same sponsors remaining with the car. ]

Larson will compete in Friday’s World of Outlaws race at Knoxville, IA, in a car he owns after the series denoted him completing the mandated sensitivity training. Also appearing in that race will be former NASCAR driver Kasey Kahne.
