NASCAR: Kyle Larson says he’d “like to try” Le Mans in Twitter Q&A


With roughly two hours to go in the Rolex 24 at Daytona International Speedway, Chip Ganassi Racing’s No. 02 “star car” is running among the leaders with former IndyCar and Indy 500 champ Scott Dixon at the controls.

But NASCAR Sprint Cup Series rookie of the year Kyle Larson has also played a key role in the No. 02’s success so far in North America’s biggest sports car event.

So does ‘Young Money’ have any designs on one day taking on the world’s biggest sports car event – the 24 Hours of Le Mans?

That was one of the questions put to him by fans when he took over NASCAR’s Twitter account earlier this morning after a stint in his team’s Ford-powered Daytona Prototype.

To the Le Mans question, he responded:

Other topics in the Q&A included the differences between his usual Sprint Cup car and the IMSA Prototype he’s been racing…

His approach to both racing in the daytime and the nighttime during the Rolex…

And of course, how he’s been trying to find some rest.

For more of the conversation, head over to NASCAR’s Twitter account and look for the #AskLarson hashtag.

As of the time of this post, Dixon has the No. 02 (which also features Larson’s NASCAR teammate, Jamie McMurray, and another former IndyCar and Indy 500 champ, Tony Kanaan) running in second behind leader Max Angelelli in the No. 10 Wayne Taylor Racing DP.
