Kyle Larson tests Indy car at Phoenix

Kyle Larson [was] on track in an Indy car for the first time in 2024 with a test at Phoenix Raceway.

After finishing fifth in NASCAR’s preseason exhibition at the Los Angeles Coliseum this past Saturday night, Larson [made] the trek to the one-mile, low-banked tri-oval as part of preparations for his first attempt at the Indianapolis 500 in May.

He will drive Arrow McLaren’s No. 17 Chevrolet-powered entry in partnership with Hendrick Motorsports.

With the threat of rain potentially impacting the test on Tuesday, the on-track activity was pushed up to Monday afternoon. The only other on-track running planned for Larson at this time is the Indy 500 Open Test in April 10-11.
