BJ McLeod Motorsports’ debut foray into Cup racing has resulted in a pair of DNFs for its owner-driver, though only one - the No. 78’s first race, coming at Darlington - was a major defeat, with McLeod finishing 39th after an engine expired on his car 13 laps in. Larson also lost his major sponsors, including McDonald's, Chevrolet, and Credit One Bank. Once Credit One Bank and McDonald’s announced they were terminating any relationship with Kyle Larson, Ganassi saw all but a few races of sponsorship gone for the rest of the season for the No. 42 car if Larson remained the driver. In addition to losing his team on Tuesday, Chevrolet announced that it was also terminating its partnership with Larson. “After much consideration, Chip Ganassi Racing has determined that it will end its relationship with driver Kyle Larson,” the team said in a statement. His present Xfinity Series crew chief Jason Ratcliff will retain the same position with Bell at the Cup level with LFR. The 26-year-old Bowman, who won on the Xfinity Series in 2017, took second at Talladega, Dover and Kansas this year, and he was sick of hearing about the hole on his resume.

When the race resumed after a delay of more than three hours, it was a completely different situation. Chastain currently has a deal with Kaulig Racing and has said his focus was winning an Xfinity Series championship there, while he also has substituted for the injured Ryan Newman in the last three Cup races. Bowyer earned the 15th spot with his fifth-place finish, while Newman of Roush Fenway Racing finished eighth Sunday to earn the final berth. Larson used the N-word while trying to get in communication with his spotter during the virtual race. Here’s the latest: The combination of those Chip Ganassi Racing bosses and NASCAR officials was clueless for the longest time after Larson’s used the N-word Sunday night while competing during an iRacing event. Those Chip Ganassi Racing bosses began by suspending Larson without pay, and they added they were “extremely disappointed by what Kyle said,” whatever that means.
As for NASCAR’s public relations officials, they said in a press statement that Larson has been suspended indefinitely (which is equivalent to “double-secret probation” since this came after those Chip Ganassi Racing bosses announced their suspension at the start), and NASCAR added that Larson has been ordered to complete a sensitivity training course before he’s eligible for reinstatement. Now, Chip Ganassi Racing has taken things a step further, releasing a statement on Tuesday morning that announced it is severing ties with the 27-year-old California native. Kyle Larson has been suspended without pay by both Nascar and his team, Chip Ganassi Racing, after using a racial slur during an esports event on Sunday. The car had been driven this season by Kyle Larson until he was let go from the team and suspended from the series after using a racial slur during the livestream of an online racing event two weeks ago. Chip Ganassi Racing fired Larson, who was also suspended indefinitely by NASCAR, in April after he used a racial slur during a virtual iRacing event. Even if the sponsors had not made the decision quickly, Ganassi might have seen a benefit in just parting ways with Larson. It still was an emotional decision for Ganassi, who in 2012 took a chance and signed Larson, then a 19-year-old considered a great young racing talent but with little stock car experience.
