McDonald’s set to race with Kyle Larson, No. 42 team in 2019

CONCORD, N.C.  – In their 10th year of partnership with Chip Ganassi Racing (CGR), McDonald’s announces plans to serve as the primary sponsor for multiple races in 2019 on the No. 42 McDonald’s Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, driven by Kyle Larson, in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. McDonald’s has not only been a valuable partner to CGR for nearly a decade on the No. 1 Chevy driven by Jamie McMurray, they have also been a supporter of Larson’s for several years. Although the increased presence in 2019 on the No. 42 Chevrolet will be a slightly new look, Larson has sported the Golden Arches on six occasions in his NASCAR career, having raced a McDonald’s entry in each of NASCAR’s three national touring series.

Plus, his former spotter TJ Majors hanging out in the session might have given it away, too.

What does the ‘Big One’ feel like? Let Matt Tifft’s car show you

Ever wonder just what it feels like to be a part of the “Big One” in the Daytona 500? Well, so you don’t have to experience it, we have some photos that show just how hard the impact can be at Daytona International Speedway. RELATED: Wreck pics from every angle Thanks to eagle-eye Twitter user @malikkoonce77, we can see that Matt Tifft’s No. 36 Ford wrecked so forcefully in the “Big One” that someone’s tail lights were embedded in the front of his car. @malikkoonce77 | TwitterLet that sink in — just like those three horizontal red lights are in Tifft’s car. The lights transferred from one car to another because they collided at such a great force. Kevin Harvick’s crew chief Rodney Childers was the one who realized what the photo showed on Twitter.
