Hendrick Motorsports No. 5 driver Kyle Larson’s appetite is just increasing day by day. The talk here is not just about the NASCAR Cup Series race, but his foray into different modes of racing. The 2023 season was not a good reminder for him to get his focus set on the Cup series. However, with the recent updates, it looks like he’s got his hands full again.

A report by Sportsnaut gave insights into Kyle Larson’s 2024 schedule. He has 38 Cup Series races, 20 sprint car races, an Indy 500, and 15 late-model car races. Even though 2023 was a downhill road for HMS and Larson, the team somehow has faith in their No. 5 and is not holding him back from adventurous pursuits.

The 2024 Kyle Larson bandwagon will set foot from January 6–14 at the Vado Speedway Park in New Mexico. He will be racing for K&L Rumley Enterprises, driving the No. 6 in the Wild West Shootout for the second year running. This also means that he won’t be featured at the Chili Bowl Nationals.

Larson has grown fond of late-model racing, and this explains why he is excited about it even after three consecutive years. While speaking with Derel Kessinger on his show ‘D-Suave, Kyle Larson said, “I’m definitely excited for the Late Model. I’m excited just to get to race something and back in the Late Model at a fun track.”

Racing himself was not enough for the Yung Money as he has now ventured into developing his own Spring Car Series. The High Spirit Racing is seen as direct competition to the World of Outlaws, an event where his co-owner and brother Brad Sweet has clinched 5 title victories. Explaining his vision and the bigger picture for sprint car racing he added.

Why would race fans not want a team owner to be able to make money with his race team? That’s a crazy thing to think about what we’re trying to do. I’m just excited to prove to people that we are good. And I’m sure the Outlaws will have to change their business model to remain the premier series like they are”, he added.

Kyle Larson needs to be consistent in the 2024 Cup Series

The point raised about whether he has too much on his plate was somewhat highlighted in his Cup Series campaign last season. The HMS’s No. 5 had failed to finish eight total races, which is one-fourth of the entire 36 races throughout the season. Acknowledging his shortcomings and areas for improvement, Kyle Larson said he will be back stronger next year.

I was just not as good as a few guys, especially Blaney and Ross (Chastain), probably. It would’ve been difficult, but my team did a really good job all season. I’m extremely proud of them. We had an up-and-down year, and we finally put together two solid weeks in a row. I don’t know if we’ve done that all year. We’ll come back next year and try to be stronger.”
