With so many things that have happened in 2020, you sort of forget that Kyle Larson was fired by Chip Ganassi Racing for using a racial slur during an iRacing event back in April.

Larson immediately issued an apology for his comments, but the damage was already done and he had lost everything he had worked for up to that point.

During an appearance on Winged Nation, he revealed if he would want to return to NASCAR.

“There’s a lot to weigh, and there’s nothing really that’s come up either,” Larson told Winged Nation. “I haven’t had to make too many tough decisions or anything like that. But yeah, definitely, if the opportunity was there I would love to give it a shot to get back and prove to the NASCAR world that I am a great race-car driver. And I know if I got the right opportunity, I could win a lot of races like I am right now.”

With NASCAR going full steam ahead to show its support for racial equality in America, it’s hard to believe that Larson would be back in the fold anytime soon.
