Kyle Larson NNS Preview: Daytona International Speedway

New Number, Same Goal…Making his return to Turner Scott Motorsports in the newly-rebranded No. 42 Chevrolet Camaro, Kyle Larson looks to transition last year’s experience to this year’s success. Kicking off the NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) season opener behind the wheel of the No. 42 AXE Peace Chevy, the 2013 NNS Rookie of the Year will make his third-career start at the 2.5-mile historic speedway. A tight battle during last year’s event caused Larson to be involved in a multi-car crash on the final lap of the race, resulting in a 13th-place finish.

This Week’s Camaro…The No. 42 Turner Scott Motorsports team will unload chassis TSM-336 this weekend at Daytona International Speedway. The No. 42 car will have an on-board camera to capture all of the drafting action during Saturday’s race.

Welcome Aboard…Turner Scott Motorsports is happy to have AXE Peace on board the No. 42 car this weekend at Daytona. AXE is a leader in men’s hair care, styling, body spray, shower gel and deodorant products. To rally the world around making love, not war, AXE Peace has partnered with Peace One Day to spread awareness of World Peace Day and asks for you to share your love by using #KissForPeace.

Watch and Listen… Don’t miss any of the action as the 2014 NNS season kicks off at the World Center of Speed. The DRIVE4COPD 300 can be seen live on Saturday, February 22 beginning at 1:15 p.m. EST on ESPN and can also be heard live on MRN Radio as well as SiriusXM Satellite Radio, channel 90.

Kyle Larson on Racing at Daytona International Speedway
“I’m really excited to get back behind the wheel of my Turner Scott Motorsports Camaro. We’ve got a new number and a new crew this year, but we’ve got the same amount of determination as last year, if not more. I’m looking forward to working with Scott Zippadelli throughout the season and think our personalities and racing styles will work well together. Obviously last year, we got caught up in the big wreck. I’m really glad the fans were okay, and we’re all thankful for the safety improvements that NASCAR and its tracks continue to make. I’m looking forward to getting the finish we deserve this year.”
