Elk Grove native and NASCAR driver Kyle Larson joined the Carmichael Dave Show with Jason Ross to talk about The Apex at Red Hawk, a new indoor facility featuring go-karts, bowling virtual reality and golfing simulator. The guys also discussed future races and more with Larson.

Topics discussed include:

  • The last time Larson raced go-karts
  • “I still love racing, I go back to my roots all the time. I race more dirt track stuff than I do NASCAR.”
  • What he still wants to accomplish in his career
  • “I’m going to run in the Indy 500, not this year but next year for Mclaren, and really excited about that. It’s been a dream of mine to run that event.”
  • The differences between NASCAR, Formula 1 and IndyCar
  • Which styles of races are the most taxing and how he prepares leading up to a race
  • “Putting myself in uncomfortable situations ultimately makes me get better, but I also get a lot of enjoyment out of succeeding and figuring out, and ultimately winning a race.”
  • Following the Sacramento Kings’ success from afar
  • Why Days of Thunder is his favorite racing movie
