Earnhardt Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates (EGR) announced that young driving sensation, and Elk Grove, CA native, Kyle Larson, will make his NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) debut for Team Target in the Phoenix Racing #51 Target Chevy at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Oct. 12. In addition, he will run the NSCS race in Martinsville in the #51 Target Chevy on Oct. 27.
Larson, who is currently running full-time in the NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS), will also compete in the NNS race at Charlotte in the #32 Target Camaro for Turner Scott Motorsports. Next season, the 2012 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East (NKNPSE) Champion, will continue to run full-time in the NNS, as well as compete for Rookie of the Year honors in the NSCS in the #42 Target Chevy SS.
Before becoming the full-time Target driver in the NSCS in 2014, Larson will drive under the Target banner for his two 2013 NSCS starts in Charlotte and Martinsville and in one NNS race in Charlotte. Larsons 2013 Target paint scheme in the #51 and #32 Chevys will be white and carry the familiar Target bullseye in red.(EGR).
I have watched this young man race sprint cars on the West Coast over the last three years. There was no doubt that Kyle was destined for the big stage! As I have written most of this year; keep your eyes on this talented race car driver, you might be seeing him soon on Sundays. Well guess what? That Sunday will arrive next week at Charlotte for Kyle Larson!
