(CTN News) – Kyle Larson is unlikely to finish both the Indianapolis 500 and Sunday’s Coca-Cola 600 in Charlotte because a strong storm will postpone the race.

“Priority” for Kyle Larson seemed to be the Indianapolis  500. The Kyle Larson spectators were removed from the grandstands at Indianapolis Motor Speedway roughly ninety minutes before the start of the race at twelve forty-five o’clock Eastern Daylight Time (EDT), which was the time when the storm was expected to create the most severe circumstances.

Prior to the arrival of further rains, it was thought that a brief period of opportunity would offer adequate time to dry the track and complete a minimum of 101 circuits, so certifying the race. This was the expectation.

In order to achieve the same accomplishment that Tony Stewart accomplished in 2001, which was to finish every circuit,

“The Double.” Even though the weather has been uncooperative, the preparations have been going on for more than a year now.Larson made the declaration, “I am of the opinion that our approach is to prioritize this matter.” In order for him to skip the Cup Series event that is scheduled to take place in Charlotte, he would require a waiver from NASCAR.

If I were to work in this location, I believe that I would face competition from other people. However, this has left me feeling a little bit disappointed. There was a plain deluge that I anticipated today. A storm that was more intense and lasted for a longer period of time on account of the impending rain is the kind of storm that I would prefer.

Larson was of the opinion that the Kyle Larson Indy 500 and both other races would have to start on Monday on account of the significant amount of precipitation that was expected to fall.

Larson made the observation, “But it appears like we might be able to get it dry enough to race today, but obviously that affects things for the 600.” The inclement weather continues to prevail. You do not have any knowledge of the specific outcome. It is unfortunate that the worst-case scenario is slowly becoming a reality. Today, we shall begin taking any and all steps that are required.

During the Indianapolis 500, Kyle Larson will begin the race in sixth place driving the No. 17 car for Arrow McLaren.

Which is a partnership with his NASCAR team.

Motorsports by Hendrick. During the Indianapolis 500, Kyle Larson will compete. Rick Hendrick was present during Sunday’s race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Despite the fact that Kyle Larson was anticipated to race in the Cup Series, the proprietor of a NASCAR team indicated some reluctance concerning the weather earlier in the week.

“We’ve discussed it a lot, and we know that we need to be at Charlotte for the points,” Hendrick said. “We’ve been there for the points.” On Sunday, we will merely observe the scenario before making a choice about what they should do.

Larson had the intention of following the same path as those others who sought to finish both races in order to finish the Indianapolis 500. In order to reach Charlotte Motor Speedway, he would first board a private airplane to arrive there, then transfer to a helicopter at a neighboring airfield, and finally make his way to another helicopter to complete the final leg of the journey.

In the event that the Indianapolis 500 were to start at the scheduled time, he would have approximately enough time to make it to the starting line. As a consequence of the race’s delayed start, Larson and his party would be had to make a decision that would be challenging to make.

It seems like it would be pretty difficult to accomplish. Hendrick stated, “It would be extremely difficult” when he was considering the prospect of withdrawing Larson from the Indianapolis 500 as early as possible.

In spite of the fact that he is in an exceptional position, the sheer number of people in Indianapolis would make it extremely difficult for him to do so.
