This Weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Racing News Chip Ganassi signed Kyle Larson to a developmental deal prior to the 2012 season, to move him to the Nationwide Series, where in 2013 he ran the full schedule. The jump from K&N to NASCARâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s No. 2 series is one few have successfully completed. Larson made the transition with ease, posting ďŹ ve runner-up ďŹ nishes and ending the year eighth in points. Another year has brought yet another change. In 2014, Larson is again moving up, this time to Sprint Cup, where he will compete for Rookie of the Year driving the No. 42 Target Chevrolet. He is replacing Juan Pablo Montoya, who Ganassi let go after seven mostly disappointing seasons. Larsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expectations for his freshman season are quite lofty. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would like to ďŹ nish top-15 each race; if you can do that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be close to making the Chase at the end of the season,â&#x20AC;? Larson said.

Racing History January 10, 1971 - Ray Elder, a west coast driver, beat all of the regular series veterans in an upset at the season opening Motor Trend 500 at Riverside in California. Elder won 47 races on the NASCAR Pacific Coast Late Model Series, which is the second most all time. He was inducted into the West Coast Stock Car Hall of Fame in its first class in 2002.

Waltrip also became the ďŹ rst NASCAR driver to be awarded $10 million in race winnings. He is a 2-time winner of NASCARâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Most Popular Driver Award, (1989, 1990), was the â&#x20AC;&#x153;American Driver of the Yearâ&#x20AC;?, (1979, 1981, 1982), and was named â&#x20AC;&#x153;NASCARâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Driver of the Decadeâ&#x20AC;?.
