As a result of using a racial slur, Kyle Larson has been suspended indefinitely by NASCAR.
While playing an online game streamed over a friend’s channel, Larson uttered the words in direction to someone else that they were playing.
As a result, NASCAR has indicated that Larson must complete “insensitivity training” before being reinstated. In addition, he has been suspended from Chip Ganassi Racing without pay, and from the IRacing service.
Credit One Bank has also announced that they are terminating sponsorship of Larson moving forward.
The statements from NASCAR, Chip Ganassi Racing, Chevrolet, IRacing, and Credit One Bank can be seen below.
Chevy spokesperson: “Chevrolet has suspended its relationship with Kyle Larson indefinitely, as we do not tolerate this behavior. We will continue to monitor the events surrounding Mr. Larson & are prepared to take additional action.”
