Larson made headlines for the wrong reasons in 2020 during the global health crisis. The NASCAR driver took part in an online race that changed his life. This seedy superstar dropped a racial slur without realizing that his microphone was live. His team dropped him because that isn’t acceptable in modern society.
Furthermore, NASCAR suspended him indefinitely before they allowed him to return. But things have gone well for Larson since he competed again. He competes for Hendrick Motorsport with success and claims genuine regret for his words. Perhaps he’s telling the truth or maybe he’s sorry that the world heard him (via NBC Sport).
