Kyle Larson, the young 21-year-old up and coming superstar from Elk Grove, California, will make his NASCAR Sprint Cup Series debut at Charlotte Motor Speedway next weekend driving the #51 Chevrolet for Harry Scott Jr. Larson will have sponsorship from Target, who will also sponsor Larson for the entire 2014 season as he runs for the Rookie of the Year title for Earnhardt-Ganassi Racing.
"I am very excited to get behind the wheel of a Cup car in Charlotte this month," Larson said. "I have a lot of work to do to prepare for the 2014 season and I cannot wait to get started."
Larson will also run the #51 Chevrolet at Martinsville on October 27th. The two races in 2013 are in preparation for an entire 2014 campaign with Target as sponsor. Owner Chip Ganassi commented on the situation.
"We are happy to have an opportunity to get Kyle in a couple of Cup races this year," Ganassi said in a statement. "Those races along with an aggressive testing schedule will be invaluable in his preparation for the 2014 season."
