Kyle Larson cannot get enough seat time behind the wheel of a race car.
And that's a good thing. The 21-year-old Earnhardt Ganassi racer -- who was officially introduced Friday as the driver of the No. 42 Target Chevrolet for 2014 -- will run for Sprint Cup points next year while continuing in the Nationwide Series with Turner Scott Motorsports.
Larson currently is eighth in the Nationwide Series points after 23 races. With six top-fives -- including a season-best second place at Bristol in the spring -- and 13 top-10 finishes, his rookie year so far has been a success. But even though Larson won 30 races while running 123 events in 12 different series last year, team owner Chip Ganassi thinks Larson's best years are ahead of him.
"Obviously, the guy is ready," Ganassi said. "Some of the smarter people in the sport have said that maybe a Cup car is more like his style than a Nationwide car. It wouldn't be the first time that's happened. Time will tell, but the guy is ready."
