NASCAR: Larson hoping for 2021 consistency in 2023

With the 2023 points-paying NASCAR Cup Series season around the corner, Kyle Larson and #5 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet team are focusing on regaining the same consistency they had during their winning 2021 Championship season.

After winning his maiden Cup Series title in the first season at Hendrick Motorsports, Larson entered the 2022 season with high expectations, but they could not find the same consistency they enjoyed in 2021 and the switch to the Next Gen car proved trying.

In a recent interview, speaking about how to recreate consistent performances from his 2021 Championship season, Larson said:

“I would love for this year to get that consistency back. I’m not saying go out and win 10 races. I would love to and I would love to win more than that, but I would just love to get our consistency back like we had in 2021. Yes, we won a lot, but even we when didn’t win, we were in the top five and contending.”

“This last year, we had the speed to definitely have the consistency but we just made a lot of mistakes. A lot on my part especially. Just try to clean those areas up and get a longer stretch of smooth, consistent races.”
