CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Rick Hendrick has signed Kyle Larson to drive for Hendrick Motorsports in 2021 and will fund the car out of pocket for now until sponsors come aboard.
It's a big move for Hendrick as he's weathered a difficult 2020.
He's one of the largest car dealers in the country and took a financial hit in the pandemic.
The 71-year-old cancer survivor has had to be careful.
He has still managed to push changes through on his NASCAR team and believes Hendrick Motorsports in 2021 will be more balanced than it has been in years.
