The race will be shown live at 10 a.m. Sunday on FOX.

Last season Larson competed in the Nationwide circuit
of NASCAR. He had a dramatic accident at Daytona on day prior to the 500 where his car was thrown up against the fence, came down into the infield, completely without the front of the vehicle. He was not hurt.

Larson attended Pleasant Grove High School and raced at local tracks as a teen growing up in Elk Grove.
