Kyle Larson talked about entering Indy Car in 2024. Larson doesn't want it to be just an adventure. He took his task seriously. “I think if you look at all the types of stuff that I’ve done… when I get involved in something I don’t want it to be just a one and done thing.
I want to take it serious, I want to continue to compete in it, learn the craft, because every type of racecar I drive takes a different style, a different driving path, and IndyCar is going to be another one of those obviously.
We only have this one year deal done and we’ll see how it goes, but if we all enjoy it and all have a good time, if we all believe it was successful and we all want more of it, I would love to do it again. I’ve always said that I do not want to compete in the Indy 500 just to say I’ve competed in the Indy 500.
I want to compete to win, I want to win some day down the road."- he said, as quoted by motorsport.com
Kyle Larson and his prime
Larson believes that he is in his prime and wants to take advantage of that fact. He is ready to compete anywhere to prove his qualities.
“I’m still young, I’m 30 right now, and I feel like I’m in the prime of my career, and I feel that when you’re in your prime you need to take advantage of it and go race as much and compete in a lot of the big events you can have a shot at winning.
Obviously if you win at the first shot, that can change things if all parties enjoy it, I would love to compete in it more than just next year”. - Larson continued. McLaren CEO Brown talked about teaming up with Hendrick.
Brown is excited about the opportunity and believes both teams have a lot in common. “One of the many things that is very exciting about our partnership is like Mr. H said, we’re all a bunch of racers and race in different formulas, and have a lot in common, and you never quite know where partnerships could lead… That was one of the things that was very exciting for us – creating a partnership that when you get a bunch of racers together who have a passion for winning and racing cars, it can certainly lead to other opportunities in the future”.
