DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Kyle Larson is ready to live up to the hype as NASCAR's next great driver.
He won a low-level NASCAR developmental series championship last season, the first time he raced in stock cars. He also had three top-10s in his four Truck Series starts.
Larson takes the next step when he drives in Saturday's Nationwide Series race at Daytona International Speedway. But first, there are short-track races Monday and Tuesday nights at Daytona in the ``Battle of the Beach.'' Oh, and that's after he finished second in the ARCA race, making him one of the busiest drivers of Speedweeks.
Many of NASCAR's elite drivers like Jeff Gordon and Tony Stewart are wowed by Larson and say he is someone to watch.
