Is Larson ever really off of that "roll"?

It is mind boggling to consider how many wins and championships Larson would amass and what sort of legend he'd build if he ran dirt open wheel cars on a regular basis! I am thankful I've had the pleasure and honor to watch this young man throughout his epic career to this point. Before he's done he'll most likely take on mythical status in the history of American racing. I honestly believe, without a doubt, Mr. Larson, in relatively competitive equipment, could win the Indy 500 and I'll go on record as predicting he will win it at some point.

Apparently, he wasn't satisfied with just beating up on USAC for a week. Last night, he went to Arizona Speedway and collected ASCS's trophy, over Bell and others.

Good points....but
So far he's a very good but not great NASCAR driver. We'll see about Indy
Dirt? How old do you have to be to make HOF? He's already earned it....

He has made it further in the "playoffs" of ANY Ganassi driver...the only other one that I can think of, that was relevant to the championship (the last style tho, b4 the "chase") late in the year, was Sterling Marlin in 2001 (& then he got hurt in September)...so ya, let's hope Kyle has gotten the call for the #48 or smthn somewhere other than Cheap Chip's NASCAR...then I blv we will see results like the last month of his OW racing has been...

Larson going to the 48 would be the worst thing he could possibly do as far as racing dirt during the nascar season goes. It will be over just like it was for Kahne. Iíve always thought he would stay with chip because of the freedom he gives him to race dirt and the direct ties to Indy

I won't argue that, BUT I still really hope Ricky ends up there...he is another that hasn't gotten in the right situation in Cup racing, to display the talent he has...
