Question of the Day
He made a trip to IndyCar’s care center, but nothing could be diagnosed on site. Kanaan flew home after the race, joking “painkillers are my friend” as he waited for the extent of the injury to be determined.
Kanaan eventually posted his X-ray on Twitter with an announcement that he’ll be fine in time for next week’s race in his native Brazil.
“No broken bones. Contusion and torn ligaments,” he wrote. “It’s a full-on injury but it will heal on its own.”
The two will drive for Lee Faulk Racing in their first appearances in Hamlin’s annual charity race.
Stenhouse has six Nationwide Series starts at Richmond, where he’s finished in the top-five four times.
“Denny has been able to raise a lot of money for charity through this race each year, and I’m happy to support him and the causes his foundation supports,” said Stenhouse. “I enjoy getting to the short tracks each season, and Richmond is always a lot of fun to race, so I expect we’ll have a good time.
Larson made his Richmond debut last season in the K&N Pro Series East. He started second and finished fourth in that race.
Hamlin joked in February he wanted to add Larson to the field after Larson spun leader C.E. Falk III coming out of the final turn to win the inaugural Battle at the Beach at Daytona. Falk is entered in the charity race.
“I love to race anything, but it’s extra special to get to be a part of this one, since it supports such a good cause,” said Larson.
NHRA-LIVE COVERAGE: NHRA will be live on ESPN2 this weekend from Royal Purple Raceway near Houston in what series officials hope will lead to better coverage.
Coverage begins Saturday afternoon with the final round of qualifying, which is a last chance for competitors to secure their positions in the starting lineups, improve upon their qualified times, and grab the No. 1 qualifying positions for Sunday’s race day.
Sunday will feature a three-hour telecast of both the semifinal and final rounds from the event. The first two sessions will be featured on a very short tape-delayed basis, but ESPN2 will bring the action up to live beginning with semifinals of Pro Stock Motorcycle. The bikes will be followed by Pro Stock, Funny Car and Top Fuel.
