NASCAR champion and new McLaren IndyCar signing Kyle Larson joins The Race IndyCar Podcast this week for an exclusive interview following the news he will race in the 2024 Indy 500.

Larson is known for his willingness and ability to jump in any machinery and go fast quickly, although he’ll face some unique challenges making his IndyCar debut at the Indy 500.

He joins hosts Jack Benyon and JR Hildebrand to discus what some of those challenges might be, the relevance of the fact he’s already won the NASCAR race – the Coca-Cola 600 – that takes place on the same day, what he remembers about watching McLaren growing up and the involvement of Jeff Gordon in making this deal happen.

There’s also talk of what other challenges Larson might want to take on – including testing and even racing an F1 car – and how he adapted to the new Cup Series car in 2022, for the NASCAR-minded fans of the show.
