$10,000 “Kids Dash for Cash”
Kyle Larson and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. are utilizing a “throwback” idea from their racing roots to help enhance the future of their sport.
In a concerted effort to attract new young fans to NASCAR, Larson and Stenhouse Jr. will host a $10,000 “Kids Dash for Cash” event prior to the start of the AAA Texas 500 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Playoff race on Sunday, Nov. 4, at Texas Motor Speedway.
Stenhouse Jr. on racing at Talladega:
“Talladega is always a special place for me since it’s my home track and where I got my first Cup win. The main thing for me is to be patient because anything can happen and you have to be there at the end to contend for the win. Jimmy Fennig has been working really hard on getting our cars ready. I think if we can stay out of trouble then we have a great shot of getting our No. 17 Ford back to victory lane.”
