At just one week old, Kyle Larson made his first trip to the racetrack. A few short years later, he had already set his sights on making trips not just to, but around the racetrack, and has been driving the circuit ever since.
Often among the youngest of his peers to reach a milestone, whether it be his ascent to NASCAR, becoming a dad, owning a home or developing as an entrepreneur, Kyle’s journeys are fast-paced.
Positioned at the top of his sport, Kyle’s passion for the dirt drove him back to the tracks where he grew up, but this time around as a team owner. The shy kid with a dream from northern California can proudly serve as a role model for others chasing down their own dreams in a variety of ways. Coming full circle, Kyle is not just living his dream, he’s living the American Dream, as well.
The life of the party and the first to crack a joke, Kyle is a trip. Never taking himself or life too seriously, he keeps the mood around him light by poking fun at his friends on social media, photo-bombing the occasional TV shot, or putting a silly spin on songs during karaoke. His quick wit allows him to take things easy, as he approaches life with an extra dose of fun at every turn.
As a young dad and husband, there are many things Kyle and Katelyn want to share with their children. Kyle and Owen have quickly bonded as he teaches him the trades of being a man, like how to change a tire, wire an outlet, or tune his engine. His daughter Audrey, like most girls, has her dad wrapped around her finger. And while Kyle already possesses strong traits that are primed for fatherhood, there are many others he’s working to master before passing along to Audrey and Owen.
Wherever life takes him, whatever adventures he’ll encounter along the way, Kyle will evolve in ways that even he won’t expect. But in the end, he’ll always come back around to his roots as the kid with a dream, doing what he loves.
