For the second weekend in a row, a NASCAR Cup Series driver has been involved in an incident through iRacing. First, it was Bubba Wallace, who quit the Bristol iRacing event last Sunday.

This caused Blue Emu to end their partnership with Wallace. Also, in addition, Blue Emu has ended their relationship with Richard Petty Motorsports following a virtual game.

On Easter Sunday, Kyle Larson was taking part in an iRacing event. The eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series was off on the holiday.

However, Larson was taking part in the Monza Madness event put on by fellow NASCAR Cup Series driver Landon Cassill. This event was featured on a stream on eNASCAR.com.

With more than 60 drivers in the event — including many, who had their own POV (point-of-view) streams — Larson allegedly dropped the N-word during the video chat. He apparently — if he did say it — didn’t know that his microphone was live.

He allegedly said, “You can’t hear me? Hey, n—–.’ Young NASCAR driver Anthony Alfredo responded in the video chat saying, ‘Kyle, you’re talking to everyone, bud.’

Aron MacEachern also said, ‘Yup, we heard that.’ Justin Botelho, who was the host of the stream said, ‘Oh damn, he did not just say that.’

At this time, there is no word from NASCAR, Kyle Larson, or his Cup Series team, Chip Ganassi Racing, about Larson’s alleged actions. However, there could be ramifications from this in the future, as he may be hit with a fine, or even have sponsorships pulled following this alleged incident.

Right now, we are saying alleged. We have not talked to Kyle before so we do not know his voice.

In the coming days, maybe even as soon as Monday, we could hear more about this incident. Or, they can all let it pass, like Richard Petty Motorsports, who has not released a statement about last week’s incident that cost them money with Blue Emu departing the race team.
