NASCAR: Kyle Larson Sets Lofty Goals for 2015 Season

Despite of the failure of attaining the goal set for last season, the NASCAR driver Kyle Larson has established an even higher goal this year.


When racers are asked about their goals for the upcoming season, many of them will reluctant to give specific answers. However, this is not the case with this young driver Kyle Larson.


On a media tour, Larson said: “Last year, my goals were to maybe win a race, definitely make the Chase and win rookie of the year and be like a top-15 car each week.


“This year, I think we’re capable, at least the way we ended last year, to definitely be a top-10 car each week, and win at least two races and make the Chase and go for the championship. I think those are pretty realistic goals.”


Admittedly, Larson has won Sunoco Rookie of the Year, posting eight top fives and 17 top tens. Nevertheless, he failed to win a race last season and he didn’t make the Chase either, which means that he failed to achieve all his 2014 goals. However, this failure obviously does not prevent Larson to set a loftier goal this year.


As for this, team owner Chip Ganassi believes that the youngster’s goals are achievable.


He said: “He has the ability to get maximum speed out of the car without giving the car anything more than it will accept. I think that’s a talent. A lot of guys can give the car more than the car will accept, and that just causes other issues along the way, in the race or in the season. He’s got a great ability not to do that.”


Besides, Ganassi held it that Kyle Larson will become a legend himself instead of modeling himself after other superstars of NASCAR racing.


He said: “I don’t think he should become the next Tony Stewart or the next Jeff Gordon.


“I think he should become the next Kyle Larson. He has a lot of people who take ownership of his career, whatever, and I’d like to see him become the next Kyle Larson.”


Well, the good news is that Larson has already won a race this year, though it was not a NASCAR race. Last weekend at Daytona, he joined Jamie McMurray, Scott Dixon and Tony Kanaan in winning the Rolex 24 Hours. They finally achieved a record sixth for Ganassi, in which Larson played a significant part.


Well, Let us wish this youngster a good luck!
