      I'm enjoying it.

      FS1 is doing a weekly series of iRacing (Wednesday). This week is World of Outlaws.

        Kyle Larson has been suspended indefinitely

        Chip Ganassi Racing driver Kyle Larson has been indefinitely suspended from NASCAR following his use of a racial slur on a live stream during an iRacing event Sunday night.

        The behavioral penalty NASCAR issued Monday cited Sections 12.1 (General Procedures) and 12.8 (NASCAR Member Conduct Guidelines) of the official Rule Book. Larson must also attend sensitivity training as directed by NASCAR.

        “NASCAR has made diversity and inclusion a priority and will not tolerate the type of language used by Kyle Larson during Sunday’s iRacing event,” a NASCAR statement read. “Our Member Conduct Guidelines are clear in this regard, and we will enforce these guidelines to maintain an inclusive environment for our entire industry and fan base.”


        Larson later posted a video on his social media handles, apologizing for his actions.

          I've been following this all day. I'm surprised and disappointed. I mean, he comes from the Drive for Diversity program (or whatever it's called).

          He lost two main sponsors. Coke quietly dropped him early this year for a reason they're not revealing.

          Thing I don't understand is that he was talking to his spotter. Usually, drivers are friends with their spotters.

            Well that was smart of him... I am guessing he's done. Sponsors have all cut ties, Ganassi fired him...

            • one week until racing returns & will it be a great thing for not only race fans, but in general for anybody looking for anything that reminds us of what normal was.

              i think despite no fans at the track, this will be an absolute major tv ratings draw because they are the first to jump back in & i hope it's a big success!

                I agree. People are needing sports.

                I've enjoyed the iRacing. IndyCar, NASCAR and the Wednesday dirt tracks / IROC. It's not so much the "racing" but the behind the scenes look at the drivers. Although I enjoy the "crashes" more because no one gets hurt. Gordon's car stuck in the catch fence.

                • was great to have racing back...something very much needed right now for people to have something to watch & they really had every angle covered with the covid virus stuff...everyone had masks on & was distanced as much as possible.

                  really nice job nascar

                  on the other hand i saw a golf outing on nbc & my oh my, the complete opposite...not a single person had a mask on & i did not see them distancing much at all. i hope they get criticized over that because compared to how nascar did it, that was a bad look on golf.

                    NASCAR did a great job. You can tell that they put a lot of thought and research into it.

                    Didn't really miss the crowd during the race with the engine noises and all. But the silence during Harvick's interview. So weird.

                    Xfinity moved up to 6PM from 8PM because of possible rain. Storm coming up the coast.

                          • Ok Peanut & AZ my racing buds, curious if either of you recall the name Cale Gale?

                            He is a former Nascar driver that ran a handful of races in xfinity series in the mid 2000's & then some races in the truck series between 2007 & 2017, he drove for kevin harvick & scored one career win in the trucks in 2012 at homestead.

                            Anyway the reason i bring him up is because he was out at our jennerstown speedway & he ran in the top division super late models & let me tell you he flat out put a beating on all the locals...he won the race by nearly half a lap on 2nd place & had lapped up to 8th out of the 16 car field.

                            not sure if he plans on running anymore races here but if he does & runs like that then he will have the locals a little bitter

                            just thought i would share that with you guys.

                              I'm pretty sure he was with RCR for a while in the 33 in Busch wasn't he?

                              I'm so happy PA finally said screw it and opened up. Up to 9 races now(I was at 24 at this point last year.) I just wish the track I work at(Stateline in NY) would open up. Thankfully it looks like we are having practice this weekend, so it's a start. I really hope Lernerville still has the Firecracker. That's my one go-to for the entire year that literally all of my friend and family go as well, and we consume several Adult Beverages

                                I remember the name. Maybe he just got lucky? If he comes back and a local wins, it should make the local feel good.
