Kyle Larson will stay at Indianapolis Motor Speedway for Indy 500 qualifying Saturday, skipping the NASCAR All-Star Race heat races at North Wilkesboro Speedway.

The 2021 NASCAR Cup Series champion, who will attempt to become the fifth driver to run the Indy 500 and Coca-Cola 600 on the same day, confirmed his schedule during a media availability Wednesday morning at the Brickyard.

“The timing doesn‘t work out,” Larson said about traveling to North Carolina for the heat races, which will be held at 5:20 p.m. ET and 6:15 p.m. ET.
