Kyle Larson

Larson was in contention for the win at Charlotte in the Bank of America 500. While running second with less than 110 laps to go, Larson was about to stay out of pit road for a lap but changed his mind at the last second, entering pit road. At the same time, Kyle Busch was about to pit but changed his mind at the last second also and tried to stay out. Both cars collided as a result, spinning Larson and eliminating them from contention for the win.

On January 4, 2014, Chip Ganassi Racing announced that Larson would enter the 24 Hours of Daytona, driving the No. 02 car alongside Scott Dixon, Tony Kanaan and Marino Franchitti.

During the press conference, Larson stated, "You grow up watching the NASCAR guys then you're like, ‘wow’ when you meet them. And then watching the guys in different series there's a 'wow' factor to meeting them and working with them." In his Rolex 24 debut, Larson's car stalled, and received a speeding penalty, but finished his stint with a fifth-place finish.

Larson returned to the 02 for the 2015 event, though Franchitti was replaced by Larson's Cup teammate Jamie McMurray, and the team ultimately won the race.

Following financial issues with co-owner Steve Turner that led to the dissolution of Turner Scott Motorsports, Scott found a new partner in the team, Chip Ganassi (whose drivers Kyle Larson and Dylan Kwasniewski drove for TSM), to field a single Xfinity Series entry under the name HScott Motorsports with Chip Ganassi.

The team will run out of the Chip Ganassi Racing shop, with Larson, Brennan Poole, and Justin Marks sharing the ride.

Kwasniewski did not return to the team due to lack of sponsorship. Larson began with an eight place finish at the season opener at Daytona.

The team has some struggles in this season but Kyle Larson managed to win at Homestead after passing Austin Dillon, Ryan Blaney, Brian Scott and Erik Jones.

Larson's mother is Japanese-American, and her parents had spent time in a Japanese internment camp. Larson is currently dating Katelyn Sweet, the sister of NASCAR driver Brad Sweet. Larson announced on June 13 that he and Sweet were expecting a child. On July 16, 2014, Larson announced that the baby is a boy. On December 22, 2014, Larson's son, Owen Miyata Larson, was born.
