Kyle Larson Appreciation Thread

Don't know if this has been posted, but came across this today and thought it was pretty cool.

Running in the veteran group, not rookie today in testing at Indy. Currently 11th overall with 25 taking a lap
 
Anybody that follows Larson fairly closely knows there is all kinds of speed there, but the walls of Indy are pretty close and the cars are as fragile as china. Here's to hoping he keeps it of the wall and brings it to the finish and doesn't get hurt doing it.

iam kind of worried about him in those dam things, he was around 14 fast to today.
 
Like 241 unreal

I wonder how fast they can go before hitting the G-Force wall.

Didn't the old CART series cancel a Texas race several years ago due to drivers blacking out at 241ish.

“It was his facility, it was his race weekend, so we went first and just had Dr. Olvey explain about the large amount of G forces. If I recall correctly, I think it was a 23-second lap and they had sustained G forces each lap for like 18 of the 23 seconds. You basically needed a G suit to race.”

Lap times at The Speedway are in the 37 second range. Much less time spent per lap with centripetal forces acting on the car / driver.
 
100% agree. Especially given Kyle’s driving style and his lack of experience in Indy cars.
I don't feel the quality of the Indy Car field is what it once was....meaning, I think you have guys going 230 who have no business going 230. At those speeds, even one mistake from Larson could be big.....but that is not so much my worry as a mistake from a driver in over their head.....

Larson will need to temper his aggression.
 
The word going around is that Larson will parachute directly into the #5 car through the roof hatch.
I heard he's going to drop onto the racetrack, from the cargo area of his plane, inside his car at speed when the green drops fast and furious style.

I just ran across this video of Tony Stewart discussing Kyle Larson racing the double.
