Kyle Larson named to Forbes’ 30 Under 30 sports list

Jose Altuve, Anthony Davis, Julio Jones … Kyle Larson?

While the Chip Ganassi Racing driver may have a bit more in common with the fellow 5-foot-6 Altuve than 6-foot-11 Davis, all three are members of the 2017 Forbes 30 Under 30 sports list.

Arguably the fastest-rising young star in NASCAR, Forbes mentions the 25-year-old’s 2014 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series and 2013 XFINITY Series Sunoco Rookie of the Year Awards, as well as partnerships with Target, Chevrolet, Oakley, Credit One Bank, iRacing and alpinestars in his profile.

Larson’s 12 top-two finishes, also mentioned, certainly didn’t hurt his case, either.

See the full list — which Larson has a great shot to be included on for the next four years — over at Forbes.com.
