NASCAR driver Kyle Larson threw his job away by saying one word on Easter Sunday.
“What Kyle Larson did to himself in that one moment was like hitting the wall running at 300 mph,” Humpy Wheeler, the retired racing executive who ran Charlotte Motor Speedway for 33 years, said.
But will Larson ever be able to resurrect his career at NASCAR’s highest level? And, if so, how?
The answer to that question is more complicated than you would imagine.
Only 27, Larson is a driver with undeniable talent.
“Outside of Kyle Busch, Larson is the best driver we’ve got,” Wheeler said.
That doesn’t matter much right now in a sport where sponsors control an enormous piece of the pie.
Now he’s reportedly entered Sensitivity training to help rehab his image.
