Kyle Larson released a personal essay late on Sunday evening concerning his life and his experiences since he said the N-word on an iRacing stream in March.

Early on in the letter Larson states that NASCAR rightfully suspended him.

“Ten weeks earlier, I had said the N-word on a public channel before an esports race. In an instant, my career was shattered. I was rightly suspended by NASCAR and fired from my job with a top-tier team.”

Larson goes into his entire experience following the incident and what his life has been like since in the letter.

He talks about different people he talked to and touched on different experiences that he has had during the time period.

I’d summarize more, but its better to read the letter in its entirety for yourself.

This essay comes a week after rumors surfaced that Larson could be on his way to Hendrick Motorsports for the 2021 season and beyond.
