NASCAR wants to see Kyle Larson attempt the Indianapolis/Charlotte double and will try to be as accommodating as possible Sunday night for the start of the Coca-Cola 600.

“We‘re going to work closely with the folks at Speedway Motorsports, our TV broadcast partners, the folks at (Hendrick Motorsports, to do everything we can to make sure that Kyle can get there — within reason,” NASCAR‘s Elton Sawyer told SiriusXM NASCAR Radio. “We‘ve got some minute-by-minute (schedules) and when we do our command and when the green flag (waves), but we‘re going to work closely together to make sure our fans get to see one of the best drivers ever in our sport to be able to participate in our Coke 600 Sunday night.”

It‘s an estimated 50 minutes to one hour by plane from Indianapolis to Charlotte Motor Speedway. The plan is for Larson to leave the Brickyard by helicopter, get on a plane, and fly into the Concord airport before helicoptering to the speedway.

It‘s also worth noting that the forecast for Sunday in Indianapolis calls for thunderstorms and heavy rain. Rick Hendrick said this week they will “let it play out” on race day before a decision has to be made about where Larson will compete.
