NASCAR star Kyle Larson fired for using racial slur in virtual race
"After much consideration, Chip Ganassi Racing has determined that it will end its relationship with driver Kyle Larson," Ganassi said. "As we said before, the comments that Kyle made were both offensive and unacceptable especially given the values of our organization.
Larson, in his seventh full season racing at NASCAR's top Cup level, was in the final year of his contract with Ganassi Racing. He was at the top of the list of a crowded free-agent field when the circuit was suspended four races into the season because of the coronavirus pandemic.
