Worse Week: Kyle Larson
On Sunday Kyle Larson became the fourth full-time driver to miss action this season. Larson joins the likes of Kyle Busch, Brian Vickers and Kurt Busch who have all missed races for various reasons. Larson reason for health associated as he fainted the day prior to the race during an autograph session at the track.
At the time of this writing Larson is still in the hospital. The good news is that all of his tests have come back negative thus far and he is reportedly feeling fine and in great spirits. One would have to imagine that doctors are simply taking every precaution because the last thing anyone wants is for something to happen to Larson while he is in the car.
That being said, missing a race is never a good way to end your week. We here at BTF are glad that Larson is doing well and wish him a quick and healthy return to the track, but siting on the sidelines this weekend and eating hospital food certainly qualifies as a bad week.
