Kyle Larson will become the fifth driver to attempt The Double and the first in a decade.

Well it was said in the above article he wasn’t going to enter a race this year. It alluded to sim time, sitting on on debriefs, attending races. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him run Texas next year to prepare on the oval, but there’s just so many possibilities for seat/preparation time I’d be remiss to speculate. I did find interesting it seemed Jeff Gordon was heavily involved in making this happen.I have nothing to back this up, but my feeling is if Mr H is involved it's going to be more than one race and I would expect Kyle to be well prepared before his 1st try at the 500.

Rick Hendrick co-owning the entry probably changes the calculus behind that. Mostly blue with papaya accents would be nice, as would something more like the MCL35 livery. Those colors are proven to complement each other nicely, more so compared to a Menards yellow.Great news, it was about time someone attempted the double again.
So that means he'll run a papaya-orange HendrickCars paint scheme?
I'm not so sure. To me it seems like chase is too much of the golden child and I don't know any other way to say it besides I just don't think he has the talent to do it competitively. Has Byron done anything outside of stock cars on asphalt? I can see Bowman doing it, but sadly I think he lacks the star power to pull it offIf this goes well with Hendrick being a co owner I can see other Hendrick drivers doing this in the future.
Good. I still find it a bit ridiculous that KDB's Indy 500 entry supposedly didn't happen only because of a paint scheme.Rick Hendrick co-owning the entry probably changes the calculus behind that.

They’re revealing the car on the day of the Cup race during the Indy RC weekend."August 13th. Mark it. July 17th."
I'm missing the significance of those dates. The Indy 500 is May 26th.
