(NASCAR)   While the rest of the drivers are still in Texas for day four of the never-ending NASCAR race, Kyle Larson is announced as the new 88 driver, only it's in the 5 car. Now I want Corn Flakes for some reason   (nascar.com) divider line

Well, to be honest, those iRacing events were tough to watch.  Cars disappearing in the middle of the event, who was it, Denny Hamlin whose kid turned off his setup in the middle of the race because she thought it was a tv controller or something?

Good.

He didn't call a black person the N word, the context in which he used it did not cause harm to the black community, and he has acknowledged, regardless of the first two, that it was wrong.

If Mike Vick can get a second chance (or in the case of Ron Mexico, no one ever seemed to care in the first place), there's no reason Kyle shouldn't get one.

Hopefully the lessons he's learned and the positive actions he takes in the future will spread across the sport.

But Timmy Hill got to race at the front. No one can take that away.

I wonder if Junior is going to want the 88 number?

That's fine, and I think the punishment was appropriate.

I'd take 10 Larsons over one Ray Ciccarelli.

Hmm.  Was that after Dale Sr. Put him into the wall?

Larson has already shown he has talent.  I don't think it will be long before he wins his first race, especially with HMS behind him.

Bed, Bath, and Beyond would be good for him. He could model their sheets.

Aqua, teal, or plain white sheets?

Well, if that doesn't work out maybe they can put him in the 14.

Considering the current crew chief of the #48 is moving over to the #5, this will make reprogramming the idol easier.

Robin Miller at racer. If the degenerate gambler had any money. He's already ahead of the curve when it comes to writing the "redemption" story of any 'murkin driver who either is a complete moron or a total asshole.

Taken from the last article:

Since using the n-word on April 12, Larson has completed NASCAR's sensitivity training, hired an inclusion training coach, volunteered with the Tony Sanneh Foundation, visited Jackie Joyner-Kersee and her St. Louis community center, and the site of the 2014 protests in Ferguson, Missouri, that followed a fatal police shooting of a Black man.

...why did you capitalize "black"?
