In 2024, Kyle Larson will seek to join Kurt Busch, Tony Stewart, Robby Gordon and John Andretti as drivers who have competed in the Indianapolis 500 and Coca-Cola 600 on the same day.

McLaren Racing announced Thursday that it will add Larson to the Arrow McLaren lineup for next year’s Indianapolis 500.

Larson’s car will be co-owned by NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick and be sponsored by This will be Larson’s first attempt at competing in the Indianapolis 500. Busch was the last driver to run the Indy 500 and Coca-Cola 600 in the same day, doing so in 2014. Andretti was the first to accomplish the feat in 1994.

Said Larson in a team release: “I’m super excited. Competing at the Indianapolis 500 is a dream of mine and something I’ve wanted to do for a very long time – since I was a child before I ever began competing in sprint cars. To do it with Arrow McLaren and Mr. Hendrick especially is a dream come true. I’m grateful for the opportunity and am really looking forward to it even though it’s still about a year-and-a-half away. I’m really looking forward to competing in both the Indianapolis 500 and the Coca-Cola 600 and maybe even get a win or two that day.”
