TC Daily Pit Stop: Larson Talks Indy Test at Phoenix; KHI Back to Full-Time Racing; B'laster Lands with Front Row; McGee in Reaume 27 at Daytona
TC Daily Pit Stop: Wednesday, February 7th, 2024
Kyle Larson got a chance to test the No. 17 Arrow McLaren / Hendrick Motorsports IndyCar at Phoenix Raceway on Monday afternoon ahead of his 2024 Indianapolis 500 bid. Larson talked about the test on Tuesday, and says he estimates that he turned around 200 laps.
Larson said running the car at Phoenix gave him a chance to feel the uncomfortable nature in the car when it isn’t glued to a 2.5-mile speedway like Indianapolis. Larson even detailed a save that he made in his final run of the session, when the car kicked loose.
Kevin Harvick, Inc. has announced it is returning to full-time competition in 2024, with plans to compete in Super Late Model and Late Model Stock events over the course of the year.
“With KHI Management representing drviers with all levels of experience, it felt like a good opportunity to jump back in to fulltime competition,” Kevin Harvick said. “We love to compete and it brings all aspects of our businsses together on the track.”
The team will field entries this year for Brent Crews, Josh Berry, Ryan Preece, Layne Riggs, William Sawalich, and Landen Lewis this season.
B’laster will move its NASCAR Cup Series primary sponsorship program to Front Row Motorsports in 2024 after a couple of seasons with Live Fast Motorsports. The brand will make its first appearance on the No. 34 car driven by Michael McDowell at Pocono Raceway.
The agreement is a multi-race primary sponsorship in 2024.
Reaume Brothers Racing has officially announced the truck number that Keith McGee will pilot in the 2024 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series season-opening race at Daytona. McGee will run the No. 27 Ford F-150 as a teammate to Lawless Alan in the No. 33, and a to-be-announced driver in the No. 22.
McGee will run a six-race NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series schedule for the Reaume team in 2024.
Mike’s Weather Page, and Firman Power Equipment will serve as the primary sponsorship partners for Dawson Cram and the No. 4 JD Motorsports team in the NASCAR Xfinity Series season-opener at Daytona.
The car will feature a hurricane symbol on the sides of the car, and the scheme is meant to bring awareness to hurricane season, which is approaching in Flordia.
