Taking to his Twitter/X, Kyle Larson went on to state that he was excited and looking forward to racing with Keith Kunz again. He is aiming for a Dirt double at the event. He wrote:

“Excited to get to run with @KeithKunz again. Hoping everything can go good for us on Thursday and can lock in so we’ll have a chance to get back on Saturday night after the @WildWShootout. That is my main priority this weekend folks so I will not miss any of the races with @k_rumleyat @VadoSpeedway.””Now, if Thursday goes good I need all of you to please bug @MFRDirtonDirt to get the event moving quickly in Vado Saturday. He doesn’t like open-wheel race cars (sarcasm) so he might try and hold me hostage in NM….#DirtDouble.”

The 2020-21 Golden Driller winner is set to reunite with former longtime car owner Keith Kunz and Pete Willoughby to drive the Keith Kunz/Curb-Agajanian Motorsports No. 98K sponsored by DH Horton, FloRacing, HendrickCars.com
