Kyle Larson will climb into the seat of one of Turner Scott Motorsports’ most successful ARCA Racing machines at Daytona International Speedway.  The No. 4 Cessna Chevrolet Impala team has prepared chassis TMS-002 for competition at Daytona International Speedway. This specific chassis powered to the front to lead the final lap and win its most recent start at Talladega Superspeedway in May 2012. First Time For Everything… Larson heads to Daytona International Speedway with hopes to make his first career restrictor-plate start. Though he hasn’t previously raced on a stage as big as the 2.5-mile Florida track, Larson has confidence that he’ll quickly pick up on the new skill set. “I think the toughest part for me will be just learning the draft, finding a partner and getting used to pack racing,” Larson explained. “I   think learning how to suck up to the back of another car could be somewhat of a challenge. I’ve raced on a lot of different tracks in different situations before though, so hopefully it won’t take too long to figure it out and we can be up front at the end to battle for the win.” Taking Flight With Cessna… Riding on the hood and quarter panels of the No. 4 Impala this week is the world’s leading general aviation company, Cessna. Since its inception in 1927, Cessna has designed, produced and delivered more than 193,500 airplanes around the globe. This includes more than 6,300 Citation business jets, making it the largest fleet of business jets in the world. Kicking off 2013… Larson’s first focus will be the Lucas Oil 200 on Saturday, but the 20-year-old Earnhardt Ganassi Racing development driver has his sights set on his new opportunity with Turner Scott Motorsports in the NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS). Upon completion of the 200 mile ARCA contest and subject to NASCAR’s approval, Larson will make his first NNS start in the DRIVE4COPD 300 at Daytona in the No. 32 Clorox Chevrolet Camaro. No Down Time… Aside from wheeling the No. 4 Cessna Chevrolet Impala prior to climbing into the No. 32 Clorox Chevrolet Camaro for Turner Scott Motorsports, Larson is scheduled to run the UNOH Battle at the Beach, held on a temporary 0.4-mile short track on Daytona’s backstretch. The two-day show will feature three non-points special events from the NASCAR K&N Pro Series, the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tours and the Late Model division of the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series, with Larson piloting an entry in all three divisions. Watch and Listen…The Lucas Oil 200 presented by MAVTV America Real can be seen live on Saturday, February 16, on SPEED.  Race coverage will begin at 4:30 p.m. EST. Live timing and scoring will also be available on ARCARacing.com. Kyle Larson Daytona International Speedway: “Daytona is a huge place and any time you get to race somewhere with so much history, it’s really exciting. I’m just really ready to get in the car and see what we can do. Since it’s my first time on a restrictor plate track, I think it’ll be a good learning experience. Hopefully we can stay out of trouble and prepare ourselves for the rest of the season. The No. 4 Cessna Impala that my team has prepared has always been fast in all of the races it’s been in, and I think we have a good strategy to get up front again.”
