Larson Addresses Disappointment Amidst High Limit Racing’s 2024 Expansion

Larson Addresses Disappointment: In the wake of his recent disappointments at Phoenix, Kyle Larson faces more bad news. The Hendrick Motorsports driver, also co-owner of the High Limit Sprint Car Series, shared his thoughts about a saddening development as the series gears up for a national expansion next year.

Often regarded as Tony Stewart’s successor, both literally and figuratively, Larson made headlines by acquiring the All-Star Racing Series from Stewart-Haas Racing’s co-owner. However, shortly after the takeover, Larson and Brad Sweet conveyed disappointing news to the community.

After a successful first season consisting of 11-week races, Larson and Sweet announced the series’ expansion for 2024 earlier this week. Along this path, the series has been rebranded from High Limit Sprint Car Series to High Limit Racing. The duo also revealed that the series will be broadcast on Floracing on weekends, departing from its previous mid-week schedule.

Reflecting on the disappointment at Knoxville, Sweet stated, “We were disappointed, you know, we thought we would keep an event date there, they definitely showed their loyalty which we can appreciate and they’ve had a relationship with the world of outlaws and with DIRTVision and those things.”

Expressing his dissatisfaction, Larson added, “I’m proud to be a 2-time Knoxville nationals champion. I love everybody at Knoxville Raceway, and at the same point, yeah, you’re bummed that you aren’t able to have a race there next year, but I don’t view it as something that we’re not going to ever have a race there.”

He continued, “I think, you know, while what we’re doing is still so fresh and new, tracks and teams are still trying to figure it all out, so, do I understand that and know that we’re confident that in the future, you know, we will be able to race there, so I know it’s a bummer right now, but I think short term versus long term will be fine,” concluding his take.

While NASCAR strays from tradition, Larson, Stewart, and Dale Earnhardt Jr. fight to preserve short-track racing. Larson, like Stewart, values grassroots Sprint car racing. Larson is reportedly scheduled to race at dirt tracks in 2024 after finishing his Cup Series duties. Additionally, his brother-in-law Brad Sweet will race in the #49 Kasey Kahne Racing NAPA-sponsored car. Fans should expect driver roster news in the coming weeks.
