The Chip Ganassi racer will be back in his saddle of the No. 42 Target Chevrolet after being absent at Martinsville. Kyle Larson was cleared by NASCAR, and he’s aiming hard to give his best in obtaining a remarkable performance.
Larson, 22 years old drives the No. 42 Target Chevy for his team Chip Ganassi Racing. Fainting during an autograph session got him sidelined from STP 500 at Martinsville Speedway. According to his words he felt good after being placed in a hospital. The tests applied to him, from his head to toes, proved that he’s capable of racing and it was just an accident caused by dehydration “I just rushed myself that morning and didn’t take good care of myself.”, Larson declared. Right away, after passing out on Saturday following Happy Hour, he was taken to the infield care center. An ambulance was called and it took him to Martinsville Memorial Hospital. From there, he was transferred to Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte in order to make all the evaluation needed in that evening. He stayed 3 days at CMC, before being released on Monday night with the condition of coming back on Tuesday for additional testing.
He finished 18th in the Sprint Cup but dropped hard to 26th because of his absence on Sunday’s race at Martinsville Speedway. It’s to be seen if his comeback will be a good one.
