McLaren’s new blockbuster Indianapolis 500 signing Kyle Larson has triggered a special episode of The Race IndyCar Podcast this week.

NASCAR champion Larson is known for his ability and desire to race in as many different series and disciplines as possible, and that portfolio will expand as he and NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick join forces McLaren for a 2024 Indy 500 entry.

Regular co-hosts JR Hildebrand and Jack Benyon break down what we know about the move so far, with what Larson could achieve in the event and his abilities discussed in detail.

What Larson’s biggest challenges might be racing in IndyCar – not to mention in NASCAR on the same day, with the 600-mile Charlotte race coming after the Indy 500 – and how his results might affect future crossovers also forms part of the in-depth discussion.
