We're camped out at Eldora, where dirt prodigy Kyle Larson hopes to take the golden shovel home with him and, hopefully, avoid questions about how he maintains his bum. He's joining us in the JALOP-1 Airstream to answer any and all of your questions. Ask away!
The Sprint Cup rookie got his start racing open wheel midgets and sprint cars out in California before racing here, at Eldora, and taking the victory in three different USAC cars (only the second driver to do that). So to say he knows how to get slideways on dirt is an understatement.
In 2012 the 21-year-old California native took his talents to the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East and, eventually, the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driving. In 2013, he went full-time in the NASCAR Nationwide Series for Tuner Scott Motorsports. He also was part of a knock-down, drag-out fight with Austin Dillon for the inaugural win here at Eldora, juuuust barely getting edged out.
He's racing in the Sprint Cup series and had his first 24 Hour Daytona run this year. He's also expecting a kid and was nice enough to take time out of his busy day to hang out, so be nice.
